“Experience of Tide-water Glaciers - frozen rivers of ice”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

A visit to Glacier bay was an unique life-time experience of not only viewing about a dozen Tide-water Glaciers - frozen rivers of ice - up-close but also the one-time sacred Homeland of the Klingit Indians. An added bonus was the oppurtunity to see "Calving" of Glaciers to form Icebergs.

“5 Star Rating Doesn't Even Do This Justice”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Glacier Bay is an absolutely amazing experience. Everyone must experience this place at some time in their life. The weather has no impact on the ability to enjoy this place. The day my cruise ship went through here it was somewhat foggy and rainy, but that didn't hamper anything. In fact that fog, absolute stillness of the sea, and the amazing green glow of the water, gives this place the most peaceful and serene feeling. If you have never experienced a tidewater glacier before then you must do it. It is something you can sit in front of for hours in wonder listening to it crack and fall into the sea. And there is wildlife everywhere! We saw giant brown bears both on the shore and swimming in the open water. Hundreds of sea lions, dozens of humpback whales, countless sea otters. If you are going on a cruise of Alaska MAKE SURE Glacier Bay is on the itinerary.

“Mind-blowing viewa of glaciers”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

This is one the most stunning views I have seen.
If you go, stay overnight & go on a SMALL boat (not a cruise-liner).

“Flight of a Lifetime”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

The flight-seeing trip we took over Glacier Bay was simply spectacular. We had done the cruise of the bay the day before and then treated to the aerial view the next day. The skies were crystal clear and the view were captivating. A "must see" activity.
