Day Cruise Operator Adds New Vessel
Major Marine Tours will welcome an exciting addition to their fleet in 2018: the Kenai Fjords 360, a brand new, custom-built 98-foot high-speed catamaran. The boat’s name celebrates the 360 degree views of Kenai Fjords National Park that passengers will experience from the full-wraparound third deck. The Kenai Fjords 360 was specially-designed to give passengers the best viewing experience possible. Rather than having the wheelhouse on the third deck like other Seward day-cruise catamarans, the Kenai Fjords 360 wheelhouse will be located on the second deck, giving passengers unobstructed 360 degree views from the top deck. The ship arrives in Seward in May 2018. majormarine.com

Guided Sea Kayak Tours.
Come join us for a true epic Alaskan eco-tour adventure in the beautiful Prince William Sound, where you will have the opportunity to see wildlife galore and the most amazing scenery. Our unique Hobie-Cat sea kayaks are so easy to use they’re like riding a bike. In fact the unique pedal drives are comparable to a recumbent bike, very different from your typical restrictive kayaks that require paddling from within. These sit-upon boats have two pontoons that are so stable the passengers can stand up and move around without the fear of tipping over. Cushioned seats with adjustable settings provide a comfortable experience for travelers of all sizes, ages and athletic abilities. These 18 foot boats have ample room to carry all the luxuries including, camp chairs, thick sleeping pads, full size coolers and dry wood making for the best “glamping” experience you can have from a sea kayak. On our trips you’ll set the sail and really cover some ground while also being able to get up close and personal with the glaciers. Our Philosophy is a comfortable, well fed, well rested client is a happy client. Join us and let’s get sailing!http://alaskawildguides.com/index.html
