Commercial groups in motorized or non-motorized vessels inside the boundaries of Kenai Fjords National Park are required to adhere to Marine Mammal Viewing Guidelines, published by the National Marine Fisheries Service, as a condition of this permit. The current guidelines are summarized as follows:

  1. Remain at least 100 yards (length of a football field) from whales, dolphins, porpoises, and from seals and sea lions that are on land, rock, or ice.
  2. Use extra caution when viewing seals and sea lions that are on land, 100 yards may not be sufficient distance to prevent harassment.
  3. If a whale approaches within 100 yards of your vessel, put your engine in neutral and allow the whale to pass. d) Offering food, discarding fish, fish waste, or any other food item to a marine mammal is prohibited.
  4. Handling pups, touching, or swimming with the animals is prohibited. f) If you need to move around a whale, do it from behind the whale.
  5. Vessels that wish to position themselves to allow whales to pass the vessel should do so in a manner that stays fully clear of the whale's path. Whales may surface in unpredictable locations.
  6. Breaching and flipper slapping whales may endanger people and/or vessels. Feeding humpback whales often emit sub- surface bubbles before rising to feed at the surface. Stay clear of these light green bubble patches.
  7. Emitting periodic noise may help whales know your location and avoid whale and boat collisions. For example, if your engine is not running, occasionally tap the side of the boat with a hard object.
  8. Whales, dolphins, and porpoises are more likely to be disturbed when more than one boat is near them. Avoid approaching the animals when another vessel is near. Do not encircle the animals or trap them between the shore or another boat and your boat.
  9. Always leave whales, dolphins, and porpoises an "escape route."
  10. When several vessels are in an area, communication between vessel operators will ensure that you do not cause disturbance.
  11. Limit your time with any individual or group of marine mammals to less than one half hour.
  12. Your vessel may not be the only vessel in the day that approaches the same animal(s), please be aware that cumulative impact may also occur.
  13. Vessels traveling in a predictable manner appear to be less disturbing to animals. The departure from a viewing area has as much potential to disturb animals as the approach.
  14. Pursuit of marine mammals is prohibited by law.
  15. Never attempt to herd, chase, or separate groups of marine mammals or females from their young.
  16. Avoid excessive speed or sudden changes in speed or direction in the vicinity of whales.
  17. Assume that your action is a disturbance and cautiously leave the vicinity if you observe any of the following behaviors:

i) Aggressive behavior by many animals towards the disturbance; or movement by many away from the disturbance
ii) Herd movement towards the water
iii) Hurried entry into the water by many animals
iv) Increased interactions with other animals
v) Increased vocalizations
vi) Several individuals raising their heads simultaneously

21. Engaging in a commercial activity other than that specifically permitted for is prohibited.
