On our recent visit to Anchorage, AK, we booked the Glacier Quest Cruise which is the shorter version of the 26 Glacier Cruise. We couldn't have asked for a better day and were very lucky to have clear blue skies. Instead of driving from Anchorage to Whittier, we took the Magic Bus Motorcoach which was well worth the money spent. Upon arrival in Whittier, we boarded the 80 foot catamaran which provided a very smooth ride. The staff was very friendly and the narration by our Forest Ranger was enjoyable. We enjoyed a lunch of fish and chips which is included in the price of the cruise. We were able to either sit outside and enjoy the beauty of the glaciers or view them from the inside through the large windows (while in the comfort of a warmer environment). We saw a few sea otters and sea lions while on the cruise. We stopped up close to several of the glaciers and had plenty of time to take photos. The amount of time spent on this cruise was just right (3 1/2 hours). I highly recommend this cruise.
