The trip out to the glacier by 4x4 and airboat was great fun. The trip out was full of moose sighting. The owner guide was full of information about the area. The land would look very different as the seasons change. Spectacular views even for...More

I am sure that if you call them 907-745-1577 they can schedule you. Their boat is large and can handle several people. The suggestion to contact them on their web site is also good.
