Kenai Fjords can be a challenging place to visit, with much of it only accessible from the water. The waters around Kenai Fjords and Resurrection Bay provide a unique experience, whether seeing the awe-inspiring power of a tidewater glacier and the expanse of the Gulf of Alaska or spotting any of the numerous birds and marine mammals who call these food-rich waters their summer home. A boat tour can provide all of this and more from the safety and comfort of a motorized vessel.

Boat tours depart Seward's small boat harbor daily in the summer months. It's a good idea to make reservations in advance. Several companies provide a variety of tour options, schedules, and amenities. Full-day tours that venture out to the park's tidewater glaciers are available as well as half-day tours that stay in the more protected waters of Resurrection Bay while giving you a taste of the park's wildlife and scenery.
