We spent the day on the waters of Glacier Bay and saw magnificent glaciers, ancient snow-capped mountains, whales, sea lions, mountain goats, cormorants, puffins and eagles. This tour is the only scheduled day tour permitted inside Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. The boat carries about 200 people, so the ride was not as intimate as the boat ride we took into LeConte Glacier near Wrangell. However, it was a comfortable, heated, high- speed catamaran ride; and gave us great view of marine and coastal wildlife, alongside massive glaciers, and towering mountains. There was a National Park Service Ranger on board, who narrated things of interest and was available to answer all our questions.
It was an experience of a lifetime to see such beauty. Photographs provide only a small fraction of the panorama.
There are so many glaciers!!
