Tour Overview

Home to an abundance of glaciers and wildlife, Prince William Sound is one of Southcentral Alaska‘s most picturesque marine environments. Just east of the Kenai Peninsula and a short hop from Anchorage, enjoy an Alaska day cruise on the calm waters of the Sound for a once-in-a-lifetime glacier viewing and wildlife experience. This full-day Alaska day cruise begins with a transfer to Whittier from Girdwood via the Alaska Railroad. Upon arrival you will board a smooth sailing catamaran. As you travel to Surprise Glacier you will see a working salmon hatchery as you continue to watch for sea otters and birds.
