Major Marine Tours offers world-class wildlife and glacier cruises to two of the most beautiful places in Alaska: Kenai Fjords National Park and Prince William Sound. We are a locally-owned, family company celebrating over 25 years of sharing the beauty of Alaska with our guests. See tidewater glaciers, stunning scenery, whales, and abundant wildlife from our cruises departing from the scenic harbor towns of Seward and Whittier. Our Seward cruises explore the glacier-carved fjords and abundant wildlife of Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park, offering some of the best whale watching opportunities in Alaska. Our Whittier cruises through Prince William Sound’s calm, protected waters take you to the area’s dense concentration of glaciers and waterfalls. Most cruises feature onboard National Park Ranger narration and our famous Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, freshly prepared and served while you cruise. Major Marine Tours is committed to giving back to our community and promoting environmental responsibility in Alaska. Many of us call Alaska home and we are dedicated to supporting the communities that help support us. We are committed to protecting Alaska’s wildlife and landscapes so we can continue sharing Alaska’s grandeur and beauty with our guests.
Sea kayaking along the coastline of pebbled beaches, sculpted cliffs and hanging glaciers where the wildlife is abundant and the forests untamed makes us realize we all share in the role of preserving the natural beauty of our area. Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking provides a wilderness experience with a variety of tours from 3-hours to multi-day kayak/camping trips in Resurrection Bay, Fox Island and the Kenai Fjords National Park. We choose areas that are best able to absorb our footprint and practice a Leave No Trace philosophy — we leave behind only our respect for the wilderness and its inhabitants. Sunny Cove takes an active role in advocating for wild lands to be left wild and supports local and statewide conservation efforts with donations and volunteer work. We provide our guide staff with training in natural history, local marine wildlife and the impact of our presence on vegetation, wildlife, and climate change — they in turn pass this information along to our kayakers. It is our hope that through our efforts in operating in a sustainable fashion, we will ensure that all of us and our grand kids can enjoy this beautiful place we call home.
