Great news for those on Pacific Princess this year


Recommended Posts

Below is an e-mail I received from Kenai Fjord Tours regarding the fact that a 6hr tour is now possible when we are in Seward. This is far superior to the 4 hr that never leaves Ressurection Bay and was truly a highlight of our last trip to Alaska. I strongly urge you to consider this excursion, but mostly I want people to know it is now available. It would appear that the lobbying of some CC members (and possibly others) has paid off.




Good news! Pacific Princess has decided to do a 6 hour tour departing at

11am. You may want to give it a week to book just so everyone in Princess

gets updated to this change and is familiar with the details. Please let

any other passengers that you know that might be interested in this tour.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks! :)

Thanks for doing the research and posting the email! (I actually just cut and pasted your post from your roll call to mine:D) This is such good news!!! I was so disappointed to realize we wouldn't be able to fit this tour in...


Is Kenai Fjords going to offer this tour privately only or will they be offering it through Princess?

That's great...we did not have this option available last year, although there were a few on our sailing that opted for a longer tour privately. We kayaked and visited the sea life center last year, but I would have strongly considered this option had it been available. Between this excursion and the Columbia Glacier cruise (as well as the small boat tours available in Kodiak) there should be some wonderful wildlife viewing possibilities.


Anyone on the Pacific Princess this year who is interested in marine wildlife should also watch carefully on the sea day after Kodiak (when you cross the Gulf of Alaska)...we spotted both fin and sperm whales from the ship that day!

Can someone please tell me exactly what this tour is called?

Is it Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise?


Thanks in advance.

Yes, that is its official name. It's a 6-hour boat tour.


Be careful, Princess has another excursion called "Kenai Peninsula Excursion," which is a bus tour. This is not the excursion that you want to book.
