Major Marine Tours is an award-winning, locally-owned Alaska boat tour company celebrating almost 30 years of sharing authentic Alaska adventures with our guests. We have been recognized as industry leaders for pioneering such innovative programs as bringing National Park Rangers onboard as interpreters and offering passengers reserved indoor seating. We are the first and the only operators to offer an Alaska salmon and prime rib meal freshly prepared onboard, which has been consistently rated the best of any day cruise company in Alaska.
In addition to providing world-class service to our guests, Major Marine Tours is committed to giving back to the community and promoting environmental responsibility through philanthropic giving, partnerships with local non-profit organizations, and performing environmentally-friendly practices on our vessels. See our Environmental Responsibility page for more information on how we protect our environment and give back to our community.
Experienced Alaskans are the cornerstones of our tour operations. Our team has fun and takes pride in showing visitors the amazing environment where we live and work. We love Alaska and want our visitors to have the same sense of wonder that keeps us here. We are an Alaska company that cares – about our guests, about our community, and about the beautiful places that we explore. Our goal is to provide you with a high-quality, authentic, environmentally responsible experience that inspires you to love Alaska as much as we do.
