Marvel at Prince William Sound's numerous concentration of tidewater glaciers.
Located right near the airport, this tour is a perfect way to begin or end your visit to Alaska. The company will accommodate your luggage while you fly to the grandfather of all glaciers.
The area of Prince William Sound is over 15,000 square miles, full of fjords and inlets and dozens of tidewater glaciers next to jagged mountain peaks. This area has the greatest concentration of tidewater glaciers in Alaska, including the Columbia Glacier, which is 40 miles long and more than three miles wide at its face, rising 250 feet above the water. Although still huge, it has been in rapid retreat, averaging about a half-mile a year. This has filled Columbia Bay with small icebergs, making it dangerous for tour boats to navigate too far.
When you take this trip, you will see these beautiful fjords and inlets from above. The clear, crisp water will allow you to spot marine life. The white background makes it easy to see otters, eagles, seals, and black bears. Your pilot will know just where to land to give you an opportunity to take home some outstanding photos.
