What people are saying about Seward

We were blessed to have an unusually beautiful September day!! No rain and 60 degrees!! Rain and bad weather two days before. And the day after! But on September 11th, the day we went was beautiful! It was the 6 hour tour and we saw a pod of 3 Orca whales, a rare Minke whale, sea otters sea lions, and puffins! The glaciers were spectacular! The captain of the boat was so informative and watchful of things to see. It was truly the Alaskan experience I was hoping for!!

The tour was excellent. The crew really want out of their way to locate wildlife for us to view. They even went the extra mile and stayed longer at the ice glacier to make sure everyone got to take enough pictures. Prices onboard for food and beverages was very reasonably priced

It was a great trip, even through rough seas in the Gulf of Alaska crossing. Excellent captain and a friendly and knowledgeable crew. We saw eagles, seals, orcas, otters, and Daal porpoises and got a bit of history on each. Fantastic!

Beautiful scenery. I took Dramamine before hand and didn’t have any trouble with sea sickness. The staff was very nice! You can move around the boat and take in all of the views as you please. The wildlife was awesome to see.

Highlight of our trip! Truly an awesome experience.
