Filmed on September 24, 2007 See the really big ice from the deck of the most luxurious, high-speed catamaran in Alaska! Departing from Whittier, only 60 miles SE of Anchorage, the 26 Glacier Cruise is a thrilling glacier and wildlife adventure. Enjoy the view from inside with a reserved seat or experience the sights outside from one of three viewing decks.
Made during our visit in mid May. Not known much... but May is the best time of the year to visit Alaska. It is pre-rush season: Places are not crowded and there are specials on everything whether lodging, car rentals or attractions. Purely related to this video, May is THE driest month in Alaska so we were lucky to find a very gorgeous day with mild weather and abundant sunshine. Whittier is one of the wettest and foggiest places in Alaska but on the day of our trip it was cloudy but at least there was no rain. Enjoy!
During the Adventure Travel Trade Association World Summit in Anchorage, Alaska in 2016, we joined 130 other travel delegates from around the globe to travel to Whittier and enjoy a glacier viewing cruise with Major Marine Tours. It was spectacular as you will see.
I am on the Ruby Princess cruising through the amazing Glacier Bay! I show footage of glaciers calving too!! Also, when I say the ice falling was amazing or cool, I mean that it was amazing to have the chance to witness it. I do not mean that it is amazing that our glaciers are being destroyed.

You will cruise through Port Wells and into Herriman Fjord, where you will be surrounded by breathtaking alpine and tidewater glaciers. The boat will travel to the end of the fjord and stop in front of the towering Surprise Glacier to give you time to watch for spectacular calving, where chunks of ice break off and crash into the water. Your next destination is Esther Passage, a narrow marine waterway surrounded by mountains. The captain will guide the ship to the edge of a working salmon hatchery where you will learn about the life cycle of salmon. On the way back to Whittier you will stop at the second-largest kittiwake rookery in Prince William Sound, where thousands of black-legged kittiwakes nest on the rocky cliffs. A National Forest Ranger will be onboard to narrate your cruise. Learn more: http://alaska-shoreexcursions.com/whittier/surprise-glacier-cruise This exciting tour departs from Whittier, Alaska.

One of the absolute highlights of our Alaska cruise was visiting the Hubbard Glacier. The captain of our cruise ship, the Holland America Amsterdam, did a nice job navigating the ship close to the terminus of the massive 7 mile-wide glacier. We were able to get quite a few clips of the Hubbard Glacier calving as well. It was typically accompanied by a rumbling sound. The icy glacial waters of Disenchantment Bay Alaska that our cruise ship traversed was surreal with chunks of ice of various sizes & shapes that intensified their presence as we got closer to the glacier, passing Haenke Island. The surroundings were beautiful, and we had nice views of the Valerie Glacier as well. The cruise ship in the distance was the Island Princess by Princess Cruises, and was waiting for our ship to leave so she & her guests can get closer for a nice look. Finally our ship left back into Yakuta Bay. This video is in 4K UHD resolution, and is from our 2017 June Alaska cruise. Enjoy!
We chose 2 different cruise excursions while in Juneau in August. First, we went on whale watching tour with Juneau Tours. It was my first whale watching tour and I am glad I chose to go in Alaska! At 1230, we chose an excursion with Above and Beyond Alaska called Mendenhall Glacier Canoe Paddle and Trek. We canoed about 2 miles as a group for about an hour before trekking the Mendenhall Glacier and canoeing back. I really enjoyed going inside the Mendenhall ice cave. It was a wonderful trip!
