This is the only way to see Glacier Bay NP. The boat takes you through the bay, with up close views of glaciers and wildlife. A National Park ranger provides narration throughout the day and answers questions. Boat staff looks out for wildlife makes many stops for viewing and photos. We saw bears, eagles, puffins, cormorants, sea lions, otters, orcas. You’ll learn the history of the area. We took an 8- hour tour that included complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, other drinks, a chowder/sandwich/chip/fruit lunch, and chocolate chip cookie. Other snacks available for purchase. Boats are comfortable. Taking a trip late in the season means the boat is not crowded. Ranger James did an amazing job of guiding and boat staff All did a great job.

Went on the 6 hour tour which I would highly recommend. We saw a bunch of whales and orcas and other wildlife. The crew was great, as well as the ranger. Very good food and overall nice trip. They do assigned seating and would recommend getting the meal package with the trip.

This is the only tour to visit the Glacier Bay Park without doing a cruise. The day tour was very good and we saw a lot of things: icebergs, bears, whales, etc. We did this as a one day tour from Juneau so we left Juneau very early and the plane was also delayed 30 minutes because of the fog. Fortunately we were able to flight after 30-40 minutes and able to imbark for the cruise!
