We will be on the Volendam's 7/20/2007 Alaska cruise. Recommendations on Seward shore excursions will be greatly appreciated. We will be in Seward from 7:00AM until 8:00PM.

Marine Tours has a nice whale-watching tour with one tour having a salmon dinner along the way. You can check their website. Another great thing is the Alaska Sealife Center. I have a cousin who owns a B&B in Seward and these are 2 things we did when visiting her. If they have an excusion to Exit Glacier offered that is nice as well because you can walk right up and touch the glacier. Anymore questions, feel free to ask. Have a great time.

I did the half-day cruise with Marine Tours. They are good, ship is clean and all you have to do is pray for good weather. Our cruise lasted about 5-hrs and when there isn't much to look at, 5-hr feel a bit long.

We saw a small whale breaching on a beautiful sunny day. However, we didn't see any Orcas/Killer whales on this half-day tour. From a couple of people we spoke to, people who did the full-day cruise with Marine Tours did saw Orcas.

Just keep in mind Seward rains often. Our first day there, we did sea kayaking in light rain and I thought it would stink, but our guides were good and it turned out to be a wonderful experience.

As for Exit Glacier, we had a rental car, so we just drove up. It's located not far outside (8 miles or so) of Seward. It's not as grand in size as I thought but it was still pretty amazing to see a glacier up close.
