Full description
Keep watch of all the magnificent wildlife of Resurrection Bay and the Kenai Fjords National Park.

As the vessel leaves the harbor, watch for otters, bald eagles, and harbor seals in the area. Once the cruise gets going, the captain will make frequent stops at seabird rookeries, sea lion colonies, whale sightings and more. A knowledgeable National Park Ranger will give the narration during the tour on the ecology, history and geology of the fjords.

Resurrection Bay is calmer than the open waters of the Gulf of Alaska, making this the perfect tour for those prone to seasickness.

Amazing tour!

This tour was the perfect length, and the buffet lunch was great. We were even lucky enough to see a large pod of orca whales. Otters, mountain goats, bald eagles, puffins, and sea lions were also spotted. Crew was friendly and knowledgeable, and the views of the Fjords and glaciers were breathtaking. Well worth the money.

Wonderful cruise with very good lunch (at an additional cost but worth it). All passengers were assigned seats inside, not fighting for a warm space. We saw a lot of wild life, including two humpback whales. The comments provided about the area and the animals were very informative. Even our 20 years old nephew enjoyed this cruise.

Don't miss this boat cruise. Saw more sea life than on a whole cruise

This trip was awesome. While I am a 'senior', the crew went out of their way to engage all ages. We saw sea otters, seals, orca and humpback whales, puffins, porpoises, sea lions, lots of other birds including eagles. The history of Resurrection Bay and the nature talks were informative and interesting. You can see mountains and glaciers from the ships, the train and the cruise ships but we saw more on this 5 hour cruise than in 5 days of shore excursions from the cruise ship all along the Alaskan coast.
