Most people who visit Alaska have a wildlife checklist in their heads, usually consisting of bears, moose, and whales. Alaska is known for our big, amazing wildlife, and for good reason: there’s nothing quite like watching a grizzly bear ambling across the tundra with her cubs in tow in Denali National Park, or seeing a huge bull moose cross the street in downtown Anchorage. Alaska is a wild place, and opportunities for world-class wildlife viewing can be found throughout the state.
If whales and other marine wildlife are on your checklist, Major Marine Tours cruises into Kenai Fjords National Park offer some of the best whale watching and marine wildlife viewing opportunities in Alaska. This March, our Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise was named the most popular attraction in Alaska by TripAdvisor. Of course we believe that glacier and wildlife cruises are a must-do activity for anyone visiting Alaska, and we are glad to see that TripAdvisor agrees!
Our Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise highlights the abundant wildlife that can be seen on our cruises from Seward, including humpback whales, orca whales, Dall’s porpoises, sea otters, Steller sea lions, harbor seals, puffins, eagles, and so much more. More information about the diverse range of species that can be seen from our cruises can be found on our Whale Watching and Wildlife pages. While you can see wildlife on all of our cruises, the longer you are out on the water, the better your chances are for wildlife viewing. We offer several full-day cruise options in Kenai Fjords National Park ranging from 6 – 8.5 hours that offer the absolute best chances of seeing whales and other wildlife.
