The visit to this glacier was well worth the time it took to get to it from Seward Harbor. We saw at least two calving incidents as we drifted slowly past the glacier. Our captain was able to keep us in close proximity to the...More

This is the closest we have ever been to a glacier. The shades of blue in the glacier were amazing and when it calved, the sound was unlike anything we had ever heard. The gulls apparently like the small floating ice chunks as several were...More

One of the highlights of Kenai Fjords NP was seeing Holgate Glacier. We did not get to see any calving, but it was spectacular and worth the trip.

Such a beautiful glacier and very surreal and amazing to be so near and get such great views. It was also calving and that was incredible to hear and see. There were also tons of harbor seals floating on the ice!

This is the glacier which most Kenai Fjords marine tour operators visit on their half-day tours of the National Park. It is the sight of many iconic photos which capture the cruise boats relative to the massive glacier in the background. My tour operator also...More
