Welcome Aboard! Travel by coach from Anchorage to Whittier as your experienced driver-guide points out the sights along Turnagain Arm and the scenic Seward Highway. Spend the day retracing the routes early explorers traveled during the Harriman Expedition. Your glacier cruise explores narrow fjords, calm passages and stunning scenery. From your catamaran, you’ll come face to face with towering masses of ice, so close you can hear glaciers move while gazing upon their brilliant blue hues and towering spires. You will see different types of glaciers, including Alpine (hanging), Piedmont and Tidewater. It’s not uncommon to see a glacier calve where pieces of ice break off into the water. 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, harbor seals, Dall’s porpoise and Steller sea lions during the cruise. You may also spot whales, bears, mountain goats and bald eagles.
Professional narration about the geography, history, glaciers and wildlife is provided by a U.S. Forest Service Ranger and the Captain on your cruise. Phillips Cruises operates a fleet of high-speed catamarans with two indoor heated seating areas and outdoor observation decks. All decks have outdoor areas with plenty of room for everyone to get an up close view. Modern and stylish comfortable seating at tables is designated for 4-guests and 6-guests and large picture windows provide panoramic views from every seat. The bar offers Alaskan Ales, wine, spirits, light snacks, and a variety of gift shop items for purchase (at your own expense). Restrooms, complimentary hot coffee, tea and ice water at self-serve stations are available throughout the cruise. A complimentary hot lunch is served right to your table featuring wild Alaska smoked salmon chowder or a hearty vegetarian chili upon request. After your cruise, board your motorcoach for your return trip back to Anchorage.
