Phillips Cruises - 26 Glacier Cruise Tour of the glaciers of Prince William Sound Departure Location: Whittier, AK Duration: 12:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Major Marine Tours offers world-class wildlife and glacier cruises into Kenai Fjords National Park. Cruises depart from Seward, Alaska.
21 July 2015: We travelled from Anchorage leaving at 07:15AM, travelling through the "Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel (The "Whittier Tunnel") arriving at Whittier, AK at 08:45 AM to get a lay of the land, find parking and to partake of Phillips Cruises and Tours' No Seasickness Guarantee "26 Glacier Cruise," a 5-hour journey into Prince William Sound departing at 12:30 PM. A hot lunch is included at the onset of the journey. You will see several different types of glaciers on this tour, including Alpine (hanging), Piedmont, and Tidewater glaciers. With good luck and timing...you may experience tidewater glacier calving which produce the numerous icebergs along the way. While numerous Alaskan glaciers are in retreat, there are 12 major glaciers that continue to grow and advance. There are several species of wildlife that can be seen during this cruise including whales, sea otters, seals, Steller sea lions, Kittiwakes and Eagles. There is, however, no guarantee one will see all of them. While whales can be allusive, quick to appear and then disappear, the sea lions hang out on rocky outcroppings and can be readily seen, as can be the seals resting on floating slabs of ice found near tidewater glaciers. If taking videos or photos...you must always be at the ready with your equipment, and be in the right place at the right time...to record these creatures. There wasn't an abundance of sunshine on this day, but neither was there a blowing blizzard totally obscuring the scenery. The M/V Klondike Express, a 3-deck high speed catamaran, Alaska's fastest, is 137 feet long and can hold as many as 338 passengers (which you'll notice while trying to gain access to a deck rail while trying to take videos or photos of the passing scenery!). It is said that the Express can travel at speeds as high as 45mph (about 41 knots). During the cruise it seemed that we were averaging a little more than 30 knots at any given time while traversing from one scenic highlight to the next along the 140 mile cruise. Fast enough to create a wind that would be noticeable to video camera's microphones, and to also present a challenge to one's stability while trying to capture scenery with either a video or still camera. Our video cameras, Sony HDR-PJ780 series, include a stable video platform within its exterior case which provided some semblance of stability. These cameras also include GPS capture with each video providing location data. A U. S. Forest Service Ranger accompanies these voyages and provides informative and entertaining narration along the way regarding the landscape, the many glaciers, historical events and the people associated with them. Children aboard the boat may become involved as "Jr. Rangers," activities designed to occupy their time as well. With less than ideal sunlight, boat's motion, reflections from interior windows, crowds at the deck rails...we still managed to obtain suitable videos and photos of the trip...which we hope you would enjoy as much as we will in our old age!

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.

The new best cruise ship to offer cruises in Alaska (starting in May 2019) has been hiding in Asia and Australia for the last two years. But when Royal Caribbean's "Ovation Of The Seas" begins offering Alaska cruises next year, she will be the most state-of-the-art cruise ship (by far) to offer Alaska cruises. In this video, I'll show you what's so special about Ovation Of The Seas, including several areas of the ship that will offer spectacular views while at the same time offering complete protection from the weather. I'll also fill you in on some of the little improvements that Royal Caribbean has integrated in to this class of ship (Quantum-class) that offer some nice little benefits that you wouldn't have if you sailed on any of the old ships that the other cruise lines use in Alaska. Unusual special features on this ship include NorthStar, a viewing pod that rises to 300 feet over ocean level to offer spectacular views... RipCord by iFly, a skydiving simulator... and SeaPlex, the largest indoor active space you'll find on any cruise ship.

Compilation of video clips from our visit to see the Hubbard Glacier on the 4 August 2016 aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Radiance of the Seas. Location of the Hubbard Glacier terminal face: https://goo.gl/maps/v7XX8zFctRo The Hubbard Glacier is North America's largest tidewater glacier. Here are some facts about it copied from the National Park Service website https://www.nps.gov/wrst/learn/nature/glaciers.htm. - It is 76 miles long, 7 miles wide, and is over 2000 feet thick at some locations. - The ice you see at the terminal face is approximately 450 years old and is 600 feet (183 metres) tall (350 feet (107 metres) exposed above the waterline and 250 feet (76 metres) below the waterline). - The Hubbard Glacier starts at Mt. Logan (19,850 ft) in the Yukon Territory of Canada and ends within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve. - The glacier was named in 1890 for Gardiner Hubbard, the first president of the National Geographic Society. - The Hubbard Glacier is currently advancing (last 100 years), while most Alaskan glaciers are retreating (95% ). The current rate of advance is approximately 80 feet (24 metres) per year. The glacier's rate of overall forward velocity is much higher, but the advance is due to its calving.
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!
