This is a great trip to see something uniquely Alaskan. We have been on many Alaska excursions, including Kenai Fjords and Denali. This experience compares favorably and is different then seeing the glaciers in Kenai Fjords. The up close icebergs are awesome. The tour operator...More

The combinatipn of the truck ride then air boat and jet boat combined with beatiful views and great guides was outstanding. Definitely recommend it to every age group. Viewing the glacier up close and floating among the chunks of ice was very special.

We happened to come across this excellent adventure. About an hour out of Anchorage. Start off with a 4x4 van taking you to the river where you get on a flat bottom boat and cruise out to the glaciers where you disembark for snacks, coffee...More

This was hands down one of the highlights of our Alaska trip! We took a few days to explore Alaska before our cruise and chose this - so glad we did! The ride over to the boat was informative (and bumpy) but exciting as we...More

Not really. I used yelp when I was up there to figure things out. But the base headquarters place is at least 10 miles from any restaurant as I recall. After the glacier tour we went to the reindeer place down the road and... 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.
