Exit Glacier, the only part of the park accessible by car, is definitely worth a visit. But, to see the amazing glaciers and fjords, you'll need to get a boat tour out of Seward. We spent 3 days in the backcountry in Aialik Bay within...More

You came all this way, you have to take the ride and enjoy the incredible scenery. Perhaps a whate tail or two for good measure. Safe, courteous, clean.

To see the most glaciers and have the opportunity to see the most wildlife, take one of the longer tours from Major Marine. We took the longest one (8-9 hours) and we saw just about everything you can see in the park.

You will be able to move around to get better views in different locations on the boat as you see sea life and wildlife. The captain or ranger informs you of sightings.
