Small Group Tours

Wildlife & Glacier Tours

We run tours seven days a week on M/V Outright. Our tour will depart from the Seward Small Boat Harbor at 9:00am and return to the dock at 3:30pm.  If the wildlife happens to be a little extra cooperative and fun, well then we may just have to stay out a bit longer if it complies with everyone’s schedule.

Food and beverages will be provided.  We will have a sandwich and chips style lunch along with a dessert treat.  Soda and water will be offered with lunch.  We will also have snacks during the trip as well as a Coffee and Tea.

 

Price: $269 per person +taxes and port fees
Tour Length: 6.5 hours

Where will we go?

We will head out into Resurrection Bay and venture into Kenai Fjords National Park viewing many species of wildlife as we travel toward one of Kenai Fjords most active and impressive tidewater glaciers.
Here we will watch and listen to the powerful sights and sounds of the glacier. Most likely we will see ice breaking off (calving) and crashing into the ocean. It truly is a magnificent sight!

Once we’ve spent some quality time at the glacier, we’ll venture out to do some more wildlife viewing while taking in some of nature’s most spectacular scenery. Depending on weather and wildlife sightings, we may visit the Chiswell Islands (a National Wildlife refuge and Bird sanctuary) and/or Cape Resurrection (one of the largest black-legged kittiwake rookeries in Alaska). Everyday is a different adventure and experience! The power of Mother Nature does not disappoint.

What Wildlife Might we see?

Kenai Fjords is one of the best areas for whales and wildlife viewing and offers the opportunity to see a variety of different species.   Our most common sightings include Humpback Whales, Sea Otters, Steller Sea Lions, Puffins, Dall’s Porpoise, Mountain Goats, Harbor Seals, Orca Whales (Killer whales)  and a large variety of bird species. We will provide you with a vast amount of information on all of the animals and surrounding areas that we’ll be exploring throughout the day.  In addition, we will have marine mammal books, bird guide books, and other informational material on board.

What should we bring?

Food and Drink

Please feel free to bring additional food and drinks if you would like.  Alcoholic beverages are permitted if you bring your own, and if you drink responsibly.

Clothing

Dress in layers! No matter what the weather is calling for that day, make sure you bring enough to stay warm as the temperature can feel much cooler out on the water especially at the glacier and while the boat is underway. Bring warm clothes and definitely waterproof shells or outer layers.  The cabin is heated and dry but most likely you will want to spend plenty of the day outside.
