Tour Summary

The Glacier Quest Cruise takes you from Whittier to a neighboring Fjord where two tidewater glaciers await you. Blackstone Bay is a dramatic deep water fjord, and as you cruise towards the head of the bay, you will notice Tebenkof Glacier towering on the left. As you pass this valley glacier, you will see the destination ahead of you as the valley becomes deeper and closes off more. Blackstone and Beloit Glaciers rise in front of you, and the boat will get you close to both! While you watch, listen to the sounds and sights that these massive glaciers provide. On the way the boat will make a stop at an old shipwreck in Shotgun Cove to look for wildlife roaming the shores.
