What is there to do?

Alaskan family-owned tour company Major Marine Tours (MMT) offer a number of day cruises through the Kenai Fjords, Seward, Whittier and Resurrection Bay in the stunning Alaska. 

There is nothing like the first time you spot a majestic whale breach out of the waters and splash only meters in front of you.  It is a moment you realise how vast and beautiful our planet is, and a memory and understanding that every child should experience.

Tours last from 3 hours (the Wildlife Cruise) to 7.5 hours (the exciting and breathtaking full day cruises) - with specialist cruises such as the Grey Whale Watching Tour which lasts 4 hours from Seward. 

You can be assured your family are in great hands as all tours are accompanied by experienced crew members and hosted by National Park Rangers.  These rangers and crew members can assure that any question your child has about glaciers, geology and wildlife - they can answer!  There is also a great interactive experience that children of all ages can participate in, and even come away with a coveted "junior ranger" certificate!

Seeing wildlife out in their natural habitat is one of the most exciting and thrilling experiences you can have growing up.  The best type of education outside of the classroom.

Children: $34.50 - $84.50 age 11 and younger

Any top tips?

Make sure you dress in layers, as the weather can be unpredictable. Make sure you have enough warm gear too! (And rain proof!) Don't forget your camera too - you want to be prepared when that whale might show its tail! Also please note that as much as everyone loves animals, they can't allow pets on board.

I’m Hungry!

All tours over 4 hours in duration offer a delicious Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet. Do you want to hear the exciting part? It's all you can eat! If you are vegetarian just make sure you inform the company ahead of time so they can prepare, but they would be very happy to accommodate. All cruises will supply you with warm teas and coffees, and most ships have bar service and snacks for purchase.
