Tour Itinerary

We highly recommend an overnight in Juneau before and after this program. All flights in Southeast Alaska are weather dependent and may be delayed or even cancelled due to bad weather.


Juneau to Glacier Bay National Park

In the early afternoon board a small plane for a 25-minute scenic flight to Gustavus, the gateway to Glacier Bay National Park. On arrival, you will be met by a representative and transferred to your accommodations. The remainder of the day is free to enjoy a walk or relax. Overnight at Glacier Bay Lodge.


Glacier Bay National Park

Depart from Bartlett Cove for your 8-hour narrated cruise of Glacier Bay National Park. Watch for whales, Stellar sea lions, puffins and sea otters as the high-speed catamaran cruises through the park to the face of the Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers, two of 16 tidewater glaciers found in the park. You may even be fortunate enough to see glacier calving (ice falling off into the ocean). Lunch is included and park rangers are aboard to provide interpretive information. The boat will return in the late afternoon.

*Return flight to Juneau or add on another day in Glacier Bay.

*Additional day - enjoy a 3.5-hour whale watching cruise to Icy Strait and Point Adolphus to see humpback whales in their summer feeding grounds. The whales' unique feeding techniques, acrobatics and vocalizations make this tour unforgettable. In the evening, you will be transferred to the Gustavus airport for your flight back to Juneau.

NOTE: Flights to/from Gustavus typically are in small planes with luggage weight limitations of 50 pounds per person.
