Make the most of Seward’s prime orca season by pre-booking this orca-dedicated cruise from the city. Board the comfortable boat and enjoy the optimum chance of seeing the mammals in the wild as, rather than following a fixed route, your boat heads for locations in Resurrection Bay and the Kenai Fjords where they’ve been spotted. Watch for sightings, learn about orca behavior, and hear their calls via the hydrophone.
  • Watch for orcas in the wild on an orca-spotting cruise from Seward
  • Up your chances of sightings on a boat that visits recent orca hotspots
  • Look for orcas, hear their calls, and learn about their behaviors
