Requires you to take a water taxi from Homer, AK unless you have access to a boat (too far to kayak) but it was worth it. Extremely nice view of the glacier and floating glacial ice in the lake itself. The hike itself is very...More

Booked a water taxi ($80 round trip) to take me to the park from Homer. The hike to the glacier was easy on mostly flat terrain. The glacier terminates at a lake that has several icebergs of varying sizes floating around. A great day hike...More

By the dock there are tour agencies who arrange small (eg up to 6-10 passengers) boats to take you half an hour across the bay. I can't recall what it cost but it was cheaper than most day activities in Alaska. I wouldn't do... More
