An Alaska glacier cruise is an excellent way to experience the wonderful Alaskan wilderness. Glaciers can be found throughout the Inside Passage and Southeast Alaska. We cruise through tghhe ice-strewn waters that surround the faces of these glaciers, allowing for prime photo opportunities. The magnificent beauty and immensity of the Alaska glaciers are sure to have a life-long impact upon you.
The face of a tidewater glacier can be hundreds of feet high and when large pieces calve off, the thunder echoes because of the surrounding mountains. The icebergs crackle as they melt in the seawater. We frequently spot Alaskan harbor seals, which are known to come into the pack ice to protect their pups from predators.
Explore the waters up close, from one of our kayaks, or simply enjoy the majesty of Alaska 's glaciers on our viewing deck - snuggled in a warm blanket with a beverage of your choice (served over glacier ice, of course). A note; your Custom Alaska cruise can be planned and scheduled to include as much or as little glacial exploration as you desire.
Another favorite destination to which we cruise is Tracy Arm. The narrow fjord meanders among towering mountains and massive chunks of ice for over thirty miles. The pot of gold at the end of this rainbow is an amazing view of Sawyer Glacier.
As the captain negotiates the ice flow, you'll have an opportunity to see seals lounging on icebergs and bald eagles soaring overhead, along with a host of other wildlife you won't see other places. A cloudy day at Tracy Arm is never a disappointment, as the overcast skies and fog they create serve only to intensify the dramatic contrast of the glacial ice and surrounding mountains.
