“Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We chose the 8.5 hour day cruise that included lunch and dinner at Fox Island. We had great sunny weather and saw lots of animals including three whales. Dinner was very good--prime rib and salmon. Only down side was I got very seasick even after taking Bonine. Didn't seem to bother most of the people. If you tend to get motion sick, be sure to take something.

“Walk to the Exit Glacier Face”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

An easy hike of about 1.5 miles round trip to see this fine glacier. I am an old guyb with bad knees but we made it. It was worth the walk.

“WOW!!!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This is by far the most beautiful place on earth. Make sure you also go to the Sea Life Center to view the sea life up-close and personal.

“Amazing whale watching.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Had a great day looking at porpoises, sea otters, eagles, mountain goats, puffins loads of other seabirds, orcas and humpback whales. The highlight was seeing the latter 'lunge feeding'. They came up at the same time with their mouths open to catch plankton. Fabulous day!

“Glaciers, wildlife and hiking”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Kenai Fjords NP can be visited by foot and by boat.
If you have the chance, do both because they are very different.
One day we (mother and 18 y old son) did a cruise through the bay towards Aialik and Holgate Glacier. It was very rough sea but we saw lots of wildlife. It was wonderful to experience the calving of a glacier.
The second day we went to Exit Glacier and Harding Icefield. It was a saturday so we could join a free guided rangerwalk. Rangers Joey and Debby took very good care of us.
It is a strenuous hike (roundtrip 8.2 miles) but worth every drop of sweat.
(you can always go back but I would recommend at least going to Top of Cliffs)
You can do the hike on any day you like but as it is bearcountry I felt more safe during the rangerwalk.
