My husband and I were leaving on an 8:00 PM cruise from Whittier AK in August and were looking for ways to spend the day before we left. I remember the evening when I was researching and stumbled across Glacier Jet Ski Adventures. We both thought we were a little crazy scheduling this trip but it was such a blast!! The owners were so kind in emailing back and forth with me to alleviate any concerns about making it from Anchorage in the morning, taking the jet ski trip and then making our cruise ship on time. They assisted me in booking a shuttle and even offered options for dining in Anchorage the evening before the trip.
Dannie and Kyle were our wonderful guides. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience and one of the highlights of our Alaskan Trip. Getting up close with the glacier, learning about the seabirds nesting and seeing beautiful scenery and waterfalls....Definitely consider this excursion in Whittier.

I have to say if just picked one thing in Alaska I did, this would be my favorite. I flew to Denali, and landed on a glacier, road ATV's, saw killer whales, but this is the one I'd do again and I'm scarred to death of deep water. Very large stable machines. Take it from a guy who's flipped a smaller one before. Matter of fact I think I'll buy one of these for my toy hauler lol. Danny and Chris were awesome guides. Thank you for a experience of a lifetime!

The highlight of our Alaska trip was the Glacier Jet Ski Adventure Tour. The glaciers and views were amazing and unforgettable in addition to our tour guides. The owner, himself, was a guide and it was very apparent that they wanted to make sure we were safe, following policy and instructions in addition to enjoying the tour. The whole experience was outstanding as the scenery was breathtaking and the guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had some experience with jet skiing, so they allowed us to go faster than probably others which also made it fun. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Alaska - it was the highlight of our trip!

Thanks again from the MN Family

If you're planning a trip to Whittier, you absolutely must go on the Jet Ski tour. Our experience was incredible! The guides were exceptional and made it one of the best tours we've ever taken. They picked us up from the cruise terminal and dropped us off after the tour. We rode in and around the ice, saw beautiful glaciers, and even got up close to waterfalls. Despite only having ridden a Jet Ski once before, around 20 years ago, I felt safe and supported throughout the tour thanks to the guides. We even got to see harbour seals and otters up close! The communication in the weeks leading up to the tour was excellent; we gave it a perfect rating of 10/10. Although we were initially worried about booking an independent tour instead of a cruise excursion, our concerns were unfounded. The company understands the importance of ensuring cruise passengers return on time. We were also pleasantly surprised when the owner's son "Mason" joined us on the bus ride back to the Jetski office and shared fascinating history about Whittier. Overall, it was an amazing experience and we had an absolute blast on this tour. We highly recommend booking this tour for a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Tamara 😊

So what person thinks of PWC (personal water craft) riding when they are planning their Summer trip to Alaska? Not this person that's for sure. Well, this was one of the most fun things I've ever done! It's was 100% a total blast! We had great weather. We got much closer to the action (glaciers, waterfalls and wildlife) then we would have from a boat or tour group. Our family of 6 loves riding jet skis too, so this was a perfect combination of thrill and awesome beauty. Our guides were a ton of fun and they really took care of us.

I've read some other reviews and just like anything else outdoors, bad weather could dampen the fun a bit. We just happened to have a perfect day.

Thanks Chris, Kyle and Charlie. What a great day!

This would have been an awesome excursion if the conditions would have been better.

It was rainy, cold and very windy and the waves were extremely choppy. I had only driven a jetski once about 13 years ago so it was very difficult for me. Also, going over 40 mph in rough waves is brutal.

When I was getting behind I felt pressured to catch up to the rest of the group. I think the guide in front should slow down a bit instead of the one in the back telling you to catch up. I was going as fast as I could for the conditions and felt pressured to catch up. In my opinion I think if they knew the conditions were bad (which they did as they warned us it would be rough), I think they should give you the option to cancel and not lose your money. It was still fun but I came home with a torn rotator cuff from the extremely rough waters.

I've always wanted to ride a jetski. A friend of mine who lives in Anchorage invited me to visit and I figured, why ride a jetski on a lake, which you can do anywhere, when you can ride one by a glacier?

I can't emphasize enough how awesome this tour was! We had two guides, both of whom were enthusiastic, fun and friendly. They were very patient with newbies (which all of us were) and thoroughly explained how to put on the equipment and ride the jetski. They ease you into it, and then turn you loose.

The day of our tour was cold, raining and incredibly foggy. Sounds like it wouldn't be fun, right? Wrong. It was a blast! Maybe it's even better when it's sunny, but I still had a great time as did my entire party. One note: If it's cold, you WILL appreciate those heated handlebars!

Blackstone Bay is gorgeous: Stunning waterfalls, rock outcroppings, forests for miles. We saw several harbor seals who were very curious about our group.

The crowning achievement, of course, was Blackstone glacier. Absolutely amazing, and a TOTALLY DIFFERENT vibe than seeing it from the deck of a large boat/cruise ship. The guides give you plenty of time to mill about the glacier and appreciate the beauty. There is a waterfall nearby that provides an interesting distraction. It is large enough to generate considerable wind upon impact with the bay. Our group took turns driving close to it just to feel the pressure. A unique and memorable experience.

Worried about bringing your camera? They've got you covered. The guides will happily snap pics of you from their phones and then airdrop them to you. No need to bring your own camera.

A bit of forewarning: You WILL drive fast (55 mph) about half the time you are out, so be prepared. The glacier is about 60 miles away, so you need to drive fast in order to get there within a reasonable amount of time. It is a bit harder on you physically than you might think, so I would recommend anyone considering this tour to be in at least decent shape before you ride.

All in all an incredible experience. I would absolutely do this tour again!

My partner and I had an amazing experience with Glacier JetSki Adventures! We weren't sure about our day in Whittier, and jet ski was the right choice. Top quality gear and great guides. Thank you guys! Highly recommended!
