From the time our 7.5 hr cruise with Major Marine Tours arrived at Holgate Glacier, one of the many stops on the cruise, all of the guests were entranced by the size and beauty of this magnificent glacier. One huge section of the glacier fell into the water right in front of eyes with an explosive sound right before the ice fell into the sea (called glacier calving). On one side of the glacier, a city of harbor seals rested on the floating ice in the water, without a care in the world. We also saw many Northern Sea Otters hanging around.
The glacier "breath" was cold, even on a sunny day, so bring hats and gloves while you watch the glacier in action. Holgate Glacier is one of most stunning sites on earth, and I was thankful for the privilege to watch it in action for 15 minutes.
