Major Marine Prince William Sound Tours


Experience the serenity of cruising the calm waters of Prince William Sound while marvelling at the grandeur of its ever-changing glaciers. Major Marine Tours will be your guide as you cruise through the protected waters outside of Whittier, where seasickness is highly unlikely.

The 5.25 hour Surprise Glacier Cruise visits an actively calving tidewater glacier in spectacular Harriman Fjord. You will visit bird rookeries and Steller sea lion colonies as you watch for wildlife such as sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, bald eagles, and possibly whales. Travel through a narrow marine waterway surrounded by forested mountains and visit a working salmon hatchery. The 4.5 hour Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise takes you to three actively calving glaciers in beautiful Blackstone Bay. View wildlife such as sea otters, harbour seals, and bald eagles. You will stop at each glacier and float among the icebergs as you wait for calving, where giant slabs of ancient glacial ice break off and crash into the water.

A Chugach National Forest Ranger will be on board to provide narration on the area’s history, ecology, and geology. Enjoy an Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, freshly prepared and served on board while you cruise. Use your reserved seating in the heated cabins as your base camp as you move about the vessel to view the scenery and wildlife from the outside viewing decks.
