5 Hour Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise
Departing from Seward, Alaska
Our 5 Hour Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise ventures into the world of wildlife found in and around the pristine waters of Resurrection Bay. You will experience up-close encounters with wildlife as we guide our ship along massive bird rookeries and sea lion colonies, stopping along the route to view passing whales and otters. You will see alpine glaciers tucked in the surrounding Chugach and Kenai Mountain Ranges. You will also cruise by Bear Glacier, a piedmont glacier and the largest glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. The protected waters of Resurrection Bay are calmer than the open waters of Kenai Fjords National Park, making this tour ideal for those who are prone to seasickness.

How to Get Here
Our 5 Hour Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise departs daily from Seward, a seaside town located 125 miles south of Anchorage on Alaska’s famous Kenai Peninsula. The highly scenic drive to Seward from Anchorage provides countless views of mountains, inlets, lakes, rivers, glaciers, and more. If you’d rather use your travel time to sit back and relax while you gaze at the spectacular sights, we are more than happy to arrange round-trip transportation via motorcoach or the legendary Alaska Railroad.
