What people are saying about Seward

I took a guided tour in Dec and Brandon was my guide. Since no one else booked on that day, it was a private tour. At their office, I gave him my German Drivers License to get copied, signed the liability waiver and they gave me great gear. Outside, I got an introduction and we did some training on the parking lot. All set, we drove to Kenai Fjord National Park. Snowmobiling was already fun up to that point but the view you get in the National Park is just marvelous. Good that we still had daylight. So, I could enjoy nature. Probably due to my mistake, the visor starts to ice, and couldn't see clearly. So I had to open it. Your sunglasses would do it. The trip was long, with great paths with outlandish views. Brandon was very skilled on the machine but also a great guide who knows about nature. He brought me close to the glacier and explained all about it, took pics of me, helped me when my machine was stuck at a weird angle. I couldn't wish for a better tour. Thanks a lot!

Everyone on staff was very friendly. Our captain was very knowledgeable and good at finding the wildlife we wanted to see. We got to see orcas, which was a nice surprise!

This cruise was absolutely amazing. The scenery and wildlife are out of this world, and the boat/crew were fantastic. I would highly recommend this excursion!!

I had a really great time. I like the narration about the area. Staff was friendly and we saw a lot of animals plus the area is beautiful.

Fue una gran experiencia, vimos los Glaciares Y el recorrido fue muy bello Sin duda volvería a repetir la experiencia !!
