We took the 3.5 hour ride on the Orca Song with Captain Laura and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more. In the bay we saw otters, puffins, seals, sea lions, bald eagles … and then she got the call that other boats had spotted Orcas on the ocean! We made our way to their spot and watched in amazement as they put on their show. Captain Laura shared insightful and interesting facts throughout the trip and they passed out complimentary binoculars for everyone. Grade A service from start to finish! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Our 3 1/2 hour morning tour was an amazing experience. I was worried that it was shorter than most tours and that we wouldn’t have time to see very much — that was not the case at all! From the moment we pulled out of the harbor and saw a bald eagle on the harbor marker, there was no end to the wildlife and natural beauty. Our captain was full of information and gave just enough commentary to be interesting but not overwhelming. She and her crew were skilled at spotting wildlife to point out to us and knowing where to likely find them. While wildlife is never a guarantee, we were able to see eagles, sea otters, harbor seals, and orcas. I felt that she piloted the boat in such a way as to give us maximum viewing opportunities while still respecting these beautiful animals and keeping a safe distance. Being able to see not only the wildlife but also glaciers and the geological formations they left behind was absolutely a highlight of our quick visit to Seward.
Organized, efficient and timely. The Captain made sure we saw it all! Enjoyed her educational info as we cruised around the Fjord and bay. The crew was friendly and helpful. Perfect amount of time to see wildlife and then explore the town of Seward.
