Hard to believe this was previously tainted by the Valdez Oil Spill. The cleanup, I know locals worked so hard, demonstrates excellence! Love grabbing food from Auntie Yum Yum's, walking down to the dock, seeing the fisherman clean their catch from the day, and the boats sail in and out! Just breathtaking and can't wait to go back! Miss it!!!!

We did a 6 day live aboard on Discovery Voyages. Meg, Dean and crew were amazing. If you are looking for a one of a kind experience this it it. Hiking, Kayaking, Glaciers, Wildlife and you can even do a polar plunge from the boat!! Lol.

Excellent boat, smooth and quiet, plenty of staff, comfortable seats. Bring your USB-to-whatever charge cords to keep your cell charged. They assign you a seat/table so you don't have to scramble to get a good seat. two-thirds of the seats/tables are interior (not next to a window) but plenty of access to the top and stern decks to get open views. Hope for good visibility-watch the forecast.

Saw multiple glaciers during our tour but the most exciting part was up close to the Glaciers, when the boat moved closer. It was terribly cold because it's windy but worth it. The Glaciers was incredibly amazing!

The highlight of our Alaska trip was this custom excursion on the Arctic Fox with Captain Chris Hanna and his crew. This yacht was amazing, newly remodeled with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, living room and kitchen. We especially enjoyed kayaking out to Blackstone Glacier and hearing the crashing of the ice with hundreds of birds flying around. We also made margaritas out of the glacier ice for happy hour which was really fun! All of our meals were prepared for us and delicious! On the way back we stopped amd fished for Rockfish which were filleted and prepared for us to take home. Chris is a local Alaskan and a seasoned outdoorsmen with lots of knowledge and fun stories to tell! Loved that we could do what we wanted and not feel rushed unlike the tourist boats with tight schedules. We give this trip 5 stars and will definitely go again!!

One of the most beautiful places I've ever been!

If you like glaciers, insane views, sea otters, eagles, seals, sea lions, puffins, etc....go here.

We did the Glacier Quest Cruise including the train. from Anchorage. Overall we had a good time and saw some great views of the Glaciers thanks to Rusty, the Captain. The company is not how ever as Covid cautious as they claim. There is assigned seating and they put 2 strangers at our small table. They were able to find an employee who put them at another table. They also say there are places to plug a phone in at every table, the only outlet was on the wall by the bar.

So, first of all, we were blessed with AMAZING weather, which was awesome!
But, that aside, this was anyway a terrific day cruise. Loved that our family had a table/seating area together. Captain narration was great, would have even liked a bit more information. Loved walking around and seeing all the different views and sights.
Complimentary coffee was appreciated!
Yes, there are cheaper cruises, but you get what you pay for—this cruise went all the way out into Prince William Sound and you get to see a LOT.
Wear layers and bring a hat…gets cold and windy on the deck when the ship is moving quickly!
Would definitely recommend!

The beauty here takes my breath away. The day here was sunny and warm so spent the day on our balcony. The water was glass smooth and the color of the water beautiful and the mountains majestic and beautiful. Actually this was one of my favorite days of the trip.

We took a cruise to witness the beauty of prince William sound. It was cloudy but the vistas were picturesque. We got lucky spotted a couple of otters. The glaciers and the waterfalls along them were beautiful. Must visit !
