Good time on boat.
Aug 2021
Unfortunately we took this cruise on a rainy and windy day but when it wasn't raining we saw some wonderful marine life and with a smaller boat and number of people we were able to get much closer to some of the areas and see the wildlife.

Spectacular Kenai Fjords
The Fjords are absolutely stunning! We had one if the clearest skies and best days! We saw 4 out of the 7 remaining AT1 Orcas (Marie, Paddy, Egagutak, and Mike), a family of 28 stellar sea lions, otters, puffins, dolls porpoise, harlequin ducks, harbor seals, goats and bald eagles. The waters are shimmering, the views are amazing, and the captain was super knowledgeable! Hands down a don't miss! And while you are there make sure to get a Kenai Kicker! YUM!

Awesome Wildlife Viewing
It was a great adventure, Fjords are the most beautiful parts of Alaska with great wild life and with these guys you make the best of what mother nature is offering here. Highly recommend them, they also waited 5 mins for someone travelling with kids and the commentator was awesome. She spotted amazing and possible wildlife for us. Highly recommend for both adults and kids.

Great crew, amazing sights
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Major Marine. The best part was the narration by the captain(Justin?) now I can’t remember! He did an amazing job informing and teaching us during the whole cruise. And his voice was a good voice by o hear over a PA system. We were on the Spirit of Matushka which is a brand new boat. It was beautiful! We saw otters, puffins, a humpback and baby, seals and sea lions. We were especially impressed by the beauty of the Aialik glacier. The crew was all helpful and professional. An altogether great experience!

What a great way to see so much sea life, wildlife, and glacier up close! Captain Laura did a fantastic job of narrating as we went along; and her all female crew was on task providing a pleasant and informative trip altogether.

Perfect except for outside speakers.
Sep 2021 • Couples
A stronger outside speakers would add to the experience. I had to choose between inside and outside, where I would have rather been. I missed the explanations when on deck.

Amazing cruise
Sep 2021 • Family
It was an amazing experience. The crew staff were very professional and provided excellent guidance throughout the tour. We saw Killer Whales for more than an hour other than other animals. They lowered a mic for us to hear their noise under water. The cruise ship was very new with all amenities. I highly recommend this cruise.
