Where you go
Boat trips to view tidewater glaciers are available in Glacier Bay
National Park, Kenai Fjords National Park, and in the areas around
Prince William Sound.
Visitors to the glaciers will experience
the power and majesty of these rivers of ice. Some glaciers are
a mile or more across where they meet the sea, and hundreds of
feet high. The action of wind and waves, and the constant but
slow motion of the glacier cause pieces to fall off, or “calve”
into the water. The spectacular sights and sounds of hundreds of
tons of ice crashing into the water will not be soon forgotten.
In addition to the glaciers, there will be spectacular mountains
and scenery, and abundant marine wildlife, including seals, sea
otters, porpoises, sea and shore birds, and occasionally whales.
Most glacier cruises provide a
meal on board their ship. These range from deli sandwiches to
prime rib and salmon buffets.
What You Bring –
All of the glacier cruises
provide covered, climate-controlled cabins for the comfort of
their guests. However, guests should strongly consider bringing
comfortable raingear, so that you can be on deck, even when the
weather is poor. The reason is that the views are more
spectacular when you’re not looking through a rain-spotted
window, and the colors of the glaciers are more spectacular in
cloudy conditions. Of course, you’ll also want to bring your
camera, to capture photos of some of the most spectacular
scenery and animals on Earth!
