Day cruises have long been a popular attraction for visitors to Alaska and The Kenai offers some of the best opportunities for enjoying these natural wonders up close and personal. The town of Seward is the launching point for a number of different glacier trips ranging from a short tour around Resurrection Bay to an all-day excursion into Aialik Bay or Northwestern Fjord. Homer, Alaska offers a number of wildlife cruises in Kachemark Bay State Park. Most cruises depart before noon but dinner cruises are often available. Remember that while you are enjoying glacial views from the comfort of the boat cabin, the closer you get to the glaciers the more the temperature drops, so dress in warm layers.
