Saw 2 beautiful glaciers. Prime rib lunch was good but didn’t see any wildlife. No whales, seals, eagles, puffins, or sea lions as was advertised!!

Tour guide and cruise captain were very informative. Gave enough time near both glaciers that were visited. Every guide and captain onboard made an extra effort for finding wild life on rather challenging smoky weather caused by wildfires in Alaska. Great experience. Worth every penny spent.
Amazing Glacier Tour

The tour was spectacular! The staff at Major Marine were professional and informative. Would recommend this tour to all visitors to Seward.
Super Day Trip with lots of animals

We booked this tour knowing that we will be with a lot of other people on a daily boat trip. Nevertheless for the purpose of animal watching we spent almost the whole day on deck and were not disappointed. We saw sea lions, fin whales orcas, humbback whale and a lot of birds puffins, kormirabs etc.... The food was delicious and tasty and we get a lit of it... Yammy. Definitely the money worth and we'd had some interesting talks with folks from pensiilvanya we shared our booth with. The captain was very knowledgeable and led us to the spots where could see the animals and the glaciers. The glacier were stunning beautiful and she cruised very near to the end of these tide sea glaciers, but not too near :). We enjoyed our trip.
One of our best days!

What a of the best of our entire our entire vacation, except the day my daughter got engaged on top of.Mendenhall Glacier. We saw orcas, fin whales and a humpback, seagulls, numerous birds, glaciers and the scenery was something out of story books. This was by far the best ending for our vacation!!!!
Liked it on the whole, but somewhat disappointed

Captain, Ranger and staff were great. Prime Rib/Salmon Buffet was solid, glad we ordered it. Glacier viewing was spectacular, they are amazing, even without calfing... though we did see several break off. Wildlife viewing was a mixed bag. Did see pair of Orcas, small humpback, and Fin Whales, but all from such a distance that even with a powerful telephoto lens (600mm) I could not make out any detail. Did get close to sea otters; saw some random puffins in the water, but passed on the puffin rookery to hunt whales. Did see sea lions sunbathing on rocks. All in all pretty good, but not the wow factor I thought it would be. But, it is nature after all, you take your chances.

Even though the weather didn't cooperate we really enjoyed our day. Lunch was terrific. The captain managed to find us interesting rock formations and wildlife to view, and of course, the glaciers.
