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 travelled during the Harriman Expedition. Your 5-hour glacier cruise will cover 140-miles of 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 (both humpback and orcas), bears, mountain goats and bald eagles. You will even stop at a bird rookery that is home to thousands of kittiwakes.
Professional narration about the geography, history, glaciers and wildlife is provided by U.S. Forest Service Rangers and the Captain on your cruise.The M/V Klondike Express is the largest, fastest and most luxurious catamaran in Alaska.
