On one of my trips to Alaska it was a must for me to visit the Kenai Fjords National Park. This National Park covers over 587,000 acres. I decided on the 7.5 hour small cruise tour that would take me up close and personal with glaciers, abundant wildlife, including a pod of nine Orca whales, and some of the most breathtaking scenery Alaska has to offer. This cruise allowed me to see remote parts of the park.
