Major Marine Tours/Prince William Sound

Experience the serenity of cruising the calm, protected waters of Prince William Sound on a Major Marine Tours glacier and wildlife cruise. Our two half-day cruise options give you up-close views of Prince William Sound's dense concentration of glaciers and waterfalls. Spend time in front of towering tidewater glaciers and watch for calving, where giant chunks of ice break off and crash into the water. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles, seabirds, and occasionally whales. Choose between a 5.25 hour Surprise Glacier Cruise, which visits a tidewater glacier and offers the best wildlife-viewing opportunities in Prince William Sound, or a 4.25 hour Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise, which spends time in front of actively calving glaciers. Cruises are narrated by an onboard National Forest Ranger and feature a Junior Ranger Program for kids. Enjoy an optional Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, served onboard while cruising. The area's calm waters ensure a very smooth ride, allowing us to offer you a no seasickness guarantee.
