Dominated by cascading tidewater glaciers, ice-sculpted fjords, soaring pinnacles and marine wildlife, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve is a sprawling 3.3 million acres of icy wilderness and a must-see destination for any tour through the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska.
Explored by John Muir in 1879 and established in 1980, the park has since become a coveted world-class Alaskan destination. Witness the incredible acrobatics of spectacular humpback and killer whales breaching the surface of the waters or spot some of the many other life aquatics such as harbor seals, sea otters and porpoises. The thundering display of calving icebergs, namely off Johns Hopkins and Margerie Glaciers continue to delight visitors aboard Glacier Bay Cruises. Kayaking, river rafting, fishing and whale watching remain the top activities in this blissful ice land.
