The glacier visit was part of our small boat whale watching tour with Alaska Saltwater Lodge Small Boat Tours. It was a beautiful part of an amazing day.

Beautiful tidal glacier, calving into the bay. Saw seals lounging around on ice bergs floating in front of the glacier!

Gorgeous glacier! Kenai fjord tour or another tour can take you close! The beauty of this glacier is unique not only because of the shape but the amazing islands around the area! The trip is totally worth it!

This is a highlight of a boat trip to the Kenai Fjords. Spectacular glacier and one of the best we saw on our trip to Canada and Alaska.
