About Half Day Tours

Our half-day tours range from 3.5 to 5 hours and explore Resurrection Bay and Prince William Sound. The shorter time on the water makes these cruises great options for families traveling with small children or people with limited time. All of our half-day cruises travel through calm, protected waters, making these cruises ideal for those who are concerned about seasickness. Our half-day tours from Seward highlight the abundant wildlife of Resurrection Bay, including whales, Steller sea lions, sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, seabirds, and much more. Interested in glaciers? Our Whittier cruises explore the dense concentration of glaciers found in Prince William Sound.
