See the Davidson Glacier up close, from the vantage point of our 30-foot Voyager Canoes. The Glacier Point Wilderness Safari brings you into the Alaskan Wilderness and gives you a taste of the “True Alaska”.Your adventure begins at your cruise ship where we’ll board a high-speed vessel made for wildlife viewing en route to an Alaskan paradise. We’ll ply the waters of the deepest Fjord in North America with a naturalist guide, watching for whales, sea lions, porpoise, and many other species of marine wildlife. We land at Glacier Point and board our Safari Buses for a short drive over the terminal moraines. Our award-winning guides share with you the wonders of this Glacial Wilderness. A quarter mile hike will lead us to the iceberg-studded lake where we’ll paddle our canoes to the face of the glacier. This is an ideal family adventure and one you won’t soon forget!

This was the most unforgettable part of our "land" adventure in Alaska. We took a 1.25 hour catamaran cruise through Lynn Canal (fjord). The scenery was breathtaking and our guide was so knowledgable & pointed out so many things. We landed on a beach area...More

We took this as a ship excursion and we're not disappointed. It was pricey but well worth it for the amazing experience. Loved the boat right up to the glacier and being able to touch it was awesome.
