The MMT Blog / Major Marine Tours: Your One-Stop Shop for Alaskan Adventure
Planning your ultimate Alaskan adventure can be both exciting and overwhelming. Where do you start? What should you do? Major Marine Tours makes your travel planning easier by being your one-stop shop for adventure in Seward. In addition to providing 6 cruise options in Seward and 2 in Whittier, we can also book your Seward hotel, transportation, and activities so you can spend less time researching more time daydreaming about your epic trip!
Major Marine Tours is proud to partner with several local companies that can take you the must-see sights and give you hands-on, unique perspectives of this beautiful area.
Liquid Adventures is a local kayak company based in Seward that takes you to some of the most special, remote spots in the area by kayak. They offer several guided trips suitable for all levels. Their half-day and full-day Resurrection Bay trips show you the spectacular scenery along the coastline of Resurrection Bay and include stops along the way for hikes and gourmet snacks. Their Bear Glacier Iceberg Kayak trip is not to be missed, taking you to Bear Lagoon at the terminus of Bear Glacier, the largest glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. You will paddle through the calm waters as your guide navigates you through the maze of icebergs that have calved off the glacier.
Stand Up Paddleboarding is another unique way to experience these spectacular areas. If you’re new to Stand Up Paddleboarding, Liquid Adventures offers an Intro to Stand Up Paddleboarding trip that teaches you the ins and outs of one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. If you’re ready for a little bigger adventure, travel by jet boat out to Bear Lagoon and paddle around the icebergs that have calved off of Bear Glacier.
Prefer to stay on dry land? We are also proud to partner with Exit Glacier Guides, a Seward-based guiding company that has been sharing the beauty of Alaska with visitors for over a decade. Exit Glacier Guides has hiking options for all different fitness and adventure levels. Enjoy an easy hike to Exit Glacier on their Naturalist Hike or embark on a challenging hike that climbs alongside the glacier and culminates with an hour hiking on the undulating surface of the ice.
No trip to Seward is complete without a visit to the Alaska SeaLife Center, a state-of-the-art marine research, rehabilitation, and education facility located on the shores of Resurrection Bay. Learn about the Alaska SeaLife Center’s significant research and rehabilitation efforts for sick and injured marine animals that have been rescued throughout Alaska. See animals close-up in naturalistic marine habitats and learn about Alaska’s dynamic marine ecosystems.
In addition to the above activities, we can also reserve your Seward accommodations at Harbor 360 Hotel and transportation to and from Seward on the Alaska Railroad or motorcoach.
