This Valdez day tour takes you on a 110-mile cruise through the majestic waters of Prince William Sound to Meares Glacier. On board you will have a chance to view the Sound’s wildlife, such as sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions and whales. Learn about the mining, oil, earthquake, and fishing history of Valdez, hear stories about the first people to explore and live in the Sound, and pass by the terminus of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.
