The journey begins as soon as you board our comfortable, Alaska-built vessel directly from your ship in the mouth of Disenchantment Bay. Travel aboard our maneuverable vessel allows for a route near the rocky, dramatic shoreline and provides a chance to weave through a maze of beautiful icebergs - each pieces of ice that have fallen from the face of the glacier. If ice conditions permit, the captain will navigate the narrow cut between Haenke Island and the mainland. This route provides the best opportunity for wildlife sightings. The excursion then provides significant time for up-close observation of the Hubbard Glacier with comprehensive viewing and a variety of angles for photos and video. The Hubbard Glacier is often very active, and dramatic displays of calving can occur at any time. Near the face of the Hubbard Glacier, you'll also have the opportunity to view a few lesser-known glaciers in the area. On a clear day in this temperate rainforest, you may even have the opportunity to view Mount St. Elias, the second tallest peak in the United States. Throughout the journey, a knowledgeable onboard naturalist will provide compelling narration. Visit the galley for complimentary hot beverages, a selection of food for purchase, and a collection of unique "Made In Alaska" gifts.

Special Notes:

This tour is not accessible to guests with limited mobility using a wheelchair. This tour operates in a remote wilderness area, where weather and ice conditions can alter both the duration and route of the journey, including shipside embarkation/disembarkation areas. The cruise ship also stops in view of the Hubbard Glacier and will be in sight during the excursion.

Unaccompanied Minor Policy: Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
