Kenai Fjords

Kenai Fjords National Park’s steep-sided, glacier-carved valleys give you an up-close look at abundant wildlife. Located on the southeast coast of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, it is home to the Harding Ice Field, the largest entirely within U.S. borders. Watch for bald eagles, listen to the sounds of thousands of seabirds and share the waters with Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, Dall’s porpoises, sea otters and whales. The gateway to the park is the historic town of Seward, whose quaint shops await exploration.

Depart on your thrilling 6-hour cruise into the beautiful Kenai Fjords National Park starting at 8:00 am. Relax in the heated lounge or take it all in from the open-air observation deck as you cruise into a wonderland of abundant marine life. Watch for over 100 species of birds including horned and tufted puffins, as well as seals, sea otters, and whales. The boat is handicapped accessible and restroom equipped. The boat returns to Seward at 2:00 pm.
