Oh my God. What a wonderful cruise. Saw porpoise, orcas, humpback whales, sea lions and the glacier cracking right in front of us. A memorable experience.

Incredible experience! Our captain was great at spotting wildlife and communicated with other boats as well to get us some amazing wild life sitings. Resident orcas, transient orcas (breaching!), humpback whales, sea lions, puffins, tons of sea otters and seals. Also the glacier views were incredible! Don’t miss this trip!

Great boat (clean, new, comfortable), great crew (friendly, knowledgeable, not overbearing), and great views of the wildlife (especially the whales)! Overall an amazing experience.

The captain was conscientious about us having the best experience we could have and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. We saw Orcas so I was really excited about that.

Lots of whales! The entire trip was fun and beautiful. My wife and I had a great time and we’d love to do it again with all our kids next time.

It was a gorgeous day!! Within 10 minutes of sailing we saw a humpback! The crew was very kind and friendly. The captain Chris kept an eye out for everything and was very skilled. We saw puffins, ORCAS, sea lions, more humpbacks, porpoises, eagles, and of course the awe inspiring Holgate Glacier. Major Marine Tours was the operator, and we rode the Kenai fjords 360, which is an excellent vessel, very clean, with great seating. We saw other boats on the tour and were glad we were on the 360. The scenery was just amazing!!
