Cruise with a National Park Ranger!

National Park Ranger

Educational & Informative

Major Marine Tours’ signature day cruises* are hosted by uniformed Rangers: Kenai Fjords National Park Rangers on our 5 Hour, 6 Hour, and 7.5 Hour Kenai Fjords cruises and Chugach National Forest Rangers on our Prince William Sound cruises. The Rangers provide a detailed narrative of the history, ecology, and geology of the area and are available to answer your questions throughout the cruise. They are very experienced, informative, enthusiastic, and enjoy the opportunity to share their knowledge of Kenai Fjords National Park and Prince William Sound.

Celebrating over 20 years of partnering with Kenai Fjords National Park!

National Park Ranger leading Junior Ranger Program

Junior Ranger and Explorer Programs: Fun for Kids and Teens!

Kids love our Junior Ranger Program! They work directly with the Ranger as they identify the various mammal and bird species in Kenai Fjords National Park and Prince William Sound. They receive their own copy of the Junior Ranger Adventure Guide, which guides them through various identification activities and games throughout the cruise. A Junior Ranger awards ceremony is held at the conclusion of the cruise in which each new Junior Ranger receives a participation badge from the National Park or National Forest Ranger.

Guests ages 13 and up are invited to take part in the Kenai Fjords National Park Explorer program. In this program, teens and adults are given their own Explorer Journal which provides information about the area and includes activities that encourage reflection and exploration on the cruise.
