Help w/ kenai fjords trip

We are planning to do the 6 hour trip with Kenai Fjords during our 3 day stay in Seward June 16, 17 and 18 (Wed - Fri)2004.

Question is we want the 8am trip. Should we book ahead? The cancellation policy seems pretty steep if the weather is bad. I would appreciate advise from people who have been before (especially at this time period).

Is there anyway to know how many cruise ships are scheduled to be in town during that time period?

Thanks for your help.

I would recomend you take the longest boat tour. Many people recomend at least 8 hours, which we did. We wished we had done the longest--11 hours.

People on this site recommended we wait til we were there to see how the weather was. We bought out tickets one afternoon for the next morning. We were there mid July and had no problems getting tickets.

We were also lucky to have calm seas--no one got sick. Good luck.

Thanks a lot connie.

I wasn't sure anyone was going to respond.

We were thinking that we should wait until at least the week we get there to try and have an idea about the weather.

We booked the day of the trip and it was just fine. I would also recommend this. We, too, took the shorter trip and loved it.
Even in June, be sure to bring coats--it can get very cold on the water.

You will need gloves and hats as well. Even on a warm day, we were very chilly. You can sit inside and be warmer but I just don't think you see as much.
