Seward: Kenai Fjords National Park 6-Hour Cruise
- Duration: 6 hours
Board one of the largest catamarans in the region and spend a day filled with wildlife, glaciers, mountains and more. The cruise begins by searching for wildlife in the protected waters of Resurrection Bay. Whales, sea otters, and puffins are often sighted within minutes of leaving the harbor. A National Park Ranger will provide information on the area's wildlife, glaciers, fjords, and history. Stop at one tidewater glacier that has frequent calving events, where giant chunks of glacial ice break off and crash into the water. A full bar is available for those wanting to enjoy an Alaskan Amber of glacier margarita. Savor a deli-style lunch onboard while you cruise.
It was a great trip, even through rough seas in the Gulf of Alaska crossing. Excellent captain and a friendly and knowledgeable crew. We saw eagles, seals, orcas, otters, and Daal porpoises and got a bit of history on each. Fantastic!
