Major Marine Tours is excited to announce that we will be hosting the first annual Seward Migration Festival from April 22nd – 24th! The festival will feature special guest speakers and events throughout the weekend, starting with a kick-off reception at the Alaska SeaLife Center on Friday, April 22nd.
The Seward Migration Festival is a celebration of the incredible annual migrations made by the diverse marine animals found in the waters of Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. Hear special guest speakers talk about the fascinating world of marine animal migration at the SeaLife Center Reception on Friday and the Migration Symposium on Saturday. The weekend will conclude with a Resurrection Bay Wildlife Cruise on Sunday, April 24th, where you will have the chance to can see these migrating animals for yourself. Several of the weekend’s speakers will be onboard the cruise to present on the animals that you will see. The full schedule of events and speakers can be found on the Seward Migration Festival Page.
Our goal is for the Seward Migration Festival to become an annual event that brings the community of Seward together every spring. We hope to educate locals and visitors alike on incredible journeys made by the wildlife that we are fortunate enough to see in our day-to-day lives in Alaska. We invite you to join us in a fun-filled and educational weekend!
Net proceeds from the weekend’s events will be donated to the Alaska SeaLife Center Wildlife Response Program. For our out of town visitors, or for Seward residents who want a little staycation, we are offering a special rate at Harbor 360 Hotel for the weekend. You can register for individual events or one of our cruise, hotel, and event packages on our Seward Migration Festival Page.
