Our boat tour took us within 1/4 mile away. We got to see the ice calve about 10 times. Each time it would calve there was a loud boom and sometimes a big wave for a large chuck of ice. It was amazing to see all the ice in the water.

Took a cruise with Major Marines Tour to see Holgate Glacier and was truly amazed by it's beauty. Although not very active on the day we were there, just the blue color.. so breathtaking!!! Don't miss a chance to see....

Took the boat tour and this was amazing. It is truly a highlight of the trip. My kids were amazed and asked all kinds of questions. Amazing and awesome.

On certain days the glacier will break off significantly which is an amazing site! We saw this while on the Kenai Fjords Marine tour and were lucky enough to be there on a good day. The crashing and floating ice was breathtaking. The ride there also included many sites of animals not typically seen on land.

The Holgate Glacier is the star attraction for any boat trip into Aialik Bay, Kenai Fjords NP. When I visited we saw several large pieces of ice calve off right before our eyes, and the ice was an unearthly blue color. Don't miss it!
