Anchorage - Seward
Transfer to the car rental station in Anchorage to pick up the rental car of your choice. From Anchorage take the Seward Highway South and follow the North Shore of Turnagain Arm through the Chugach State Park with panoramic views of the Chugach and Kenai Mountain Range. Stopover at the Beluga Viewpoint and search for some Beluga or Orca Whales, Dall Sheep, Mountain Goats or Moose. Arrive in Seward - gateway to the 605.000 acre Kenai Fjords National Park and join our 8-hour Wildlife and Glacier Cruise, departing at 11:30 am.
The 110-mile cruise takes you deep into Kenai Fjords National Park and to the Chiswell Islands National Wildlife Refuge. This cruise is hosted by a uniformed National Park Ranger, who will provide narration to your journey and point out the many spectacular sights while answering any additional questions you may have. Wildlife is abundant throughout the National Park, and the tidewater glaciers are massive. You'll visit the mighty Holgate Glacier where guests often witness calving - a process by which the glacier sheds giant blocks and slabs of ancient ice - from a close distance. Onboard enjoy a all-you-can-eat delicious Salmon and Prime Rib lunch buffet. With photo opportunities galore, your cruise will be unforgettable. Return to Seward at 7:30 pm. Check into your hotel.
Evening at Leisure: sample some fresh Alaska Salmon or Halibut in the many harbourfront restaurants or stroll through the downtown area. Overnight: Seward
Seward - Anchorage
Scenic Seward, flanked by rugged mountains to one side and sparkling Resurrection Bay on the other, has a way of luring visitors. Like many towns in Southcentral Alaska, Seward began a new era of history in 1964 after the Good Friday Earthquake caused fires and tidal waves that destroyed 90 percent of the town. You may spend some time at the Alaska SeaLife Center – the world’s first cold water marine search institute with wildlife rehabilitation and public education facilities, try your luck halibut or salmon fishing, attend a kayaking tour from Lowell Point or hike to Exit Glacier - the choice is yours. Depart Seward for a scenic trip back to Anchorage to return your car. Optional tour extensions on request.
