ABOUT THIS TOUR

Fabulous day tour and scenic cruise to Kenai Fjords National Park.

Tour Description

Give into Spring Fever and join the crew of Major Marine Tours for a day that is sure to become one of your fondest Alaska memories. Join us for our first cruise of the season as we head out to the opening of Resurrection Bay to witness the annual return of the gray whales.

Gray whales migrate over 5,000 miles from Baja California to the Bering and Chukchi Seas each year in search of food. These whales begin migrating north in late February and travel by “line of sight,” meaning that they travel close to the coastline on their migration. Gray whales arrive in Alaska waters in April and May, spending the summer feeding in shallow waters before they migrate south in mid-October.

Travel into the calm waters of Resurrection Bay in search of our returning visitors. In addition to gray whales, watch for humpback whales, orca whales. Steller sea lions, sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, harbor seals, bald eagles, and many other types of marine birds. Our tour is fully narrated by our experienced captains and naturalist crew members. Complimentary beverages include coffee, tea, and water. Additional snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.

Please note: This is a self-driving tour from Anchorage. Cruise departs from Seward, Alaska

    As a solo traveler I usually veer towards group tours and make my decisions based on ratings. Greatland Adventures definitely lived up to their high ratings and awesome reviews. I have booked several tours with them. From the beginning it was a pleasurable experience with Steve and Rochelle who have excellent communication with their clients and ensure you are fully accommodated for your tour. I did the northern lights tour with Mike who is an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable and he captured some excellent photos of me! I completed the glacier tour with Bill who is also very knowledgeable and ensured we had a great experience at the glacier by getting us there before others arrived and allowing us to safe explore all the accessible crevasses. I absolutely recommend this tour company they are amazing!

    I want to sincerely applaud the members of Greatland Adventures! They made me and my friend's trip to Anchorage one of the most amazing experiences ever in our lives... We were all well educated about the lights before we got there and even had a chance to have a pitstop at a gas station to use the toilet and grab a coffee. We even saw the lights that night TWICE! Thank you, Steve! The memories we made will last a lifetime and we are so happy we chose Greatland Adventures. I am telling any and everyone that plans to visit Anchorage to book through them. No question!
