Kenai Fjords Tour or Major Marine tour?

Jump to last reply

We are trying to decide which tour operator to use for a full day cruise (around 8 hours) along the Kenai Fjords/glaciers out of Seward. I have noticed posts recommending the longer cruises. Both tours sound like good tours, but the Major Marine tours have a park ranger aboard for the narrative. The Kenai Fjords Tour boats use the captain as the narrator.

If anyone has taken either of these, would you comment on your experiences? How close did you get to the glaciers? What wildlife did you see?

I am also curious about how comfortable the seating is on each boat - are the chairs padded or are they hard wood chairs? (I don't want to stand or sit in a hard wood chair for 8 hours.) Is the inside cabin heated? How is the food buffet on the Major Marine?

Any comments would be welcomed. We are going to Alaska this June and we can't wait!

Thanks - Ginny
