Beyond amazing!

We chose the 7.5 hour wildlife cruise and couldn’t have been more happy. This was our first trip to Alaska and the really the only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to see Orcas. Major Marine made that happen and it was truly unbelievable! The boat had 3 levels and you could view from any level, inside or outside. We saw glaciers, eagles, otters, sea lions, puffins and so many whales! Humpbacks and Orcas! They provided coffee the entire cruise at no charge. (unlike some other cruises we took while in Seward) Major Marine was my favorite cruise while in Seward. I highly recommend!

Great Tour

We did the 7.5 hour Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise in June. It was awesome. Before we left we were unsure if the cruise would be too long. 7.5 hours on a boat is a long time. It was perfect. The crew was really friendly and talked to you the entire trip. We saw four different types of whales, seal harbors, sea lions, otters, puffins – it was amazing. We loved seeing the glaciers and having our glacier cocktail.

Awe inspiring

For a family owned business, this place ROCKS! From the very first phone call to make the reservation, until the last goodbye as we got off the boat: professionalism was at the top of the list. Our captain Nicole was considerate of her guests (she maneuvered the boat so everyone got to see everything) the deck hands were attentive and professional. A definite MUST, even for long time Alaskans!
