Took the sightseeing cruise to the glacier. Very impressive and cold at the foot of the glacier compared to the nice summer day. Dress appropriately. Took amazing photo shots and saw calving.

We took our boat over there to view the glacier. We had to work our way around icebergs and we couldn't get very close but what we could see was excellent. Worth the boat ride in there to see it.
