Stretch your legs on a short walk from the cruise ship terminal to your sightseeing vessel. From your catamaran, you'll come face to face with towering masses of ice so close that you can hear the glaciers move. Gaze at their brilliant blue hues while you encounter several types of glaciers, including the Alpine (hanging), Piedmont and Tidewater. It's not uncommon to see glacier calvings (pieces of ice that break off into the water) during the cruise. To witness this massive movement of ice and hear its thunderous roar is truly an unforgettable experience.
Yet, with the bounty of glacial wonders, it's not just about the ice. The wildlife is equally astounding. Enjoy sightings of sea otters, seals, porpoises, sea lions and whales - both humpback and orca - during the cruise. You may also spot bears, mountain goats and bald eagles. At the end of the trip, we'll stop at a bird rookery that is home to thousands of kittiwakes.
Professional narration is provided by U.S. Forest Service Rangers on every cruise. Your vessel is the largest, fastest and most luxurious catamaran in all of Alaska. This 137-foot, high-speed catamaran has three decks, two of which are enclosed and heated. Comfortable upholstered booths with tables are available for all passengers and the large picture windows provide a view from every seat. A saloon, snack bar, gift shop and seven restrooms are a few of the available amenities. You will also enjoy a lunch of wild Alaska cod, potato chips and coleslaw.
This tour is only available to passengers on back-to-back voyages who will stay onboard the ship and cruise back to Vancouver as it is a roundtrip that will end back at the pier in Whittier. It is not available to guests disembarking the ship and ending their cruise in Whittier.
