Did not see any whales but nevertheless, the scenery was breathtaking!

We had booked the 6 hour tour but things got confused and they didn't pick us up at the cruise terminal as originally planned. We were able to take the 5 hour tour instead but we missed most of what we were hoping to see.

7 1/2 hour day cruise into Kanai Fjords. Saw pod of Orcas with baby, humpbacks feeding from surface, sea otters, sea lions, puffins, eagles, but no bears! Glaciers are amazing, but most of what we saw looked very similar. Meal was very good. NOTE: if you do not order the meal, you are not assigned a table in the enclosed climate controlled dining room, which functioned for most passengers as their warming-up home-base. Views were great from there, too. We had a great time. Read Less
