Massive blue glaciers, narrow fjords and abundant marine life are just some of the reasons that Kenai Fjords National Park is at the top of many outdoor enthusiasts' bucket lists. Cruise through the fjords while learning about the region's fascinating natural history on this 9-hour trip. Floating through Alaska's pristine waters is the best way to see this stunning national park, and this is the only daily tour that visits the magnificent Northwestern Fjord, home to three amazing tidewater glaciers and numerous alpine glaciers.
Make your way to the departure point in Seward and head out on a shuttle to the boat that will take you on an unforgettable cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park, named after its many fjords, which were carved by at least 38 glaciers. Travel deeper into the Kenai Fjords than with any other tour on a relaxingboat ride through stunning blue water surrounded by glaciers. Enjoy a breakfast of fresh-baked cinnamon rolls and fruit as you gaze at the magnificent surroundings.
This national park was established in 1980 and covers 669,984 acres (271,133 hectares) on the Kenai Peninsula, and is home to the Harding Icefield, one of the largest icefields in the country. Watch in amazement as you pass mammoth, piercing-blue glaciers. Keep an eye out for marine life like killer whales. Learn how to tell the difference between tidewater and alpine glaciers.
Cover 150 miles (241 km) on this spectacular voyage. Take a break from glacier-spotting for a lunch including a chicken Caesar wrap, potato chips, a granola bar, and a fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookie. Then see if you can spot more wildlife, which is abundant in the area. A wildlife guide will help you track what you see. Look for minke whales and harbor porpoises, falcons and arctic loons. And get your binoculars out to search for black bears and mountain goats.
Get a few last photos in with the beautiful natural backdrop and relax as you head back to port, where your shuttle will bring you back to Seward.
