Experience the serenity of cruising the calm waters of Prince William Sound while marvelling at the grandeur of its ever-changing glaciers. Major Marine
Tours will be your guide as you cruise through the protected waters outside of Whittier, where seasickness is highly unlikely.
The 5.25 hour Surprise Glacier Cruise visits an actively calving tidewater glacier in spectacular Harriman Fjord. You will visit bird rookeries and Steller
sea lion colonies as you watch for wildlife such as sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, bald eagles, and possibly whales. Travel through a narrow marine
waterway surrounded by forested mountains and visit a working salmon hatchery. The 4.5 hour Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise takes you to three actively
calving glaciers in beautiful Blackstone Bay. View wildlife such as sea otters, harbour seals, and bald eagles. You will stop at each glacier and float
among the icebergs as you wait for calving, where giant slabs of ancient glacial ice break off and crash into the water.
A Chugach National Forest Ranger will be on board to provide narration on the area’s history, ecology, and geology. Enjoy an Alaska salmon and prime rib
buffet, freshly prepared and served on board while you cruise. Use your reserved seating in the heated cabins as your base camp as you move about the
vessel to view the scenery and wildlife from the outside viewing decks.
