I love Alaska and its people. The whole state is beautiful and rugged but some of the best experiences we have had have been in the Seward area. This park is huge, no wait, MASSIVE! There is something for everyone here. There are glacier experiences at Exit Glacier, hiking in the park, fly overs in bush planes, and my favorite; glacier and wildlife cruises through Major's Marine Tours. The Marine boat tours are probably the best way to see the park even though you will only see a small portion of it. From the boats you will see wildlife, glaciers, mountains, eagles, whales, sea lions, and possibly so much more. The tours are not too expensive and are a great way to rest and relax, especially if you spent the previous week hiking like we did. We love this place and want to go back again. You will also want to hike the Lost Lake trail outside of town for spectacular views of the park and surrounding area. Beautiful trail but be prepared to overnight or deal with weather as thing change fast on the trail. My favorite trail in all of Alaska. Also locally is Caines Head Recreation area on the edge of the park which is great hiking but be careful of the tide table or you can find yourself trapped for many hours.

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.

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.

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.

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!
