There are several Seward companies offering day long and half day boat cruises to the Kenai Fjords National Park. These include visits to the glaciers flowing out of the Harding Ice Field into Resurrection Bay. The boats commonly go up to the face of the glaciers such as this one at Holgate Glacier although they stay far enough away from the face to assure that ice calving from the face of the glacier doesn’t hit the boat.
The tours include watching the many animal and bird nesting areas in the bay. There is always an interest in whale watching and the bay hosts many species of whale in the summer months. Shown on the right is a male Orca whale that was spotted on one of the tours feeding with it’s pod of female and young whales. Many sperm whales are also normally seen. The boats also tour the sea lion and various bird rookeries.
Kasilof V Park can make reservations with many different tour companies to visit the Kenai Fjords National Park. We can explain the differences in the tours for you.
