$262 per person (3 hours)
area of Prince William Sound is over fifteen thousand square miles, full
of fjords and inlets and dozens of tidewater glaciers next to jagged
mountain peaks. Actually this area has the greatest concentration of
tidewater glaciers in Alaska, including the Columbia Glacier in this
equasion. The Columbia Glacier itself is 40 miles long and more than three
miles wide at its face, rising 250 feet above the water. Although still
huge, it has been in rapid retreat averaging about a half-mile a year.
This has filled Columbia Bay with small icebergs, making it dangerous for
tour boats to navigate too far.
When you take this trip, you will see these beautiful fjords and inlets from above. The clear, crisp water will allow you to spot marine life. The white background makes it easy to see otters, eagles, seals and black bears. Your pilot will know just where to land to give you an opportunity to take home some outstanding photos.
You have the option to add an additional 30 minutes to this trip to see the Columbia Glacier as well as Prince William Sound.
