Our boat tour took us up very close to the foot of the glacier and we watched it calf as we floated in the ice laden water in near silence - awesome!

We visited the glacier on a wildlife/glacier viewing boat tour. Stunning scenery. Watched as a small piece of the glacier fell into the sea. Saw bear, mountain goats, humpback and killer whales while visiting the glacier.

Go see this glacier before it is too far from the water to see. Absolutely stunning and we were lucky enough to watch this glacier calve for almost a half hour. The sound it makes when doing that is magical. Absolutely beautiful.

If you take a inlet water cruise make sure that it takes you out to see this glacier it is spectacular and well worth the money. Also saw numerous marine wildlife.
