Most popular cruise where you get to see it all in six hours – wildlife and glaciers.

A thrilling full-day cruise traveling to Kenai Fjords National Park where wildlife is abundant and tidewater glaciers are massive.  You’ll visit the Chiswell Islands or Cape Resurrection, as they take you to the most significant wildlife viewing opportunities of the day.  You’ll often witness glacier calving from a close distance, a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks and slabs of ancient ice. These cruises also offer you the best opportunity for whale watching in Alaska. With photo opportunities galore, your cruise will be unforgettable.
