Getting on/off 150-passenger, high-speed catamaran with covered areas. Boat trip will take approximately 8 hours. Minimal walking.
At the lodge, we will enjoy an early buffet including a chef's specialty dish, eggs, meats, biscuits, potatoes, oatmeal, cereals, pastries, fruits, plus coffee and juice.
We'll board a heated, high-speed catamaran with a National Park Service ranger to spend the day on the waters of Glacier Bay to view tidewater glaciers, snow-capped mountains, whales, stellar sea lions, seabirds, seals, eagles, and possibly some bears along the shore. We'll travel to the face of the Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers, two of the many tidewater glaciers found in the National Park.
Aboard the catamaran, we’ll enjoy a boxed meal including a sandwich, fruit, cookie, plus coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water.
We'll continue our exploration through the bay watching for calving glaciers, floating ice, and wildlife. Isn't that what Alaska is all about? After our stunning ride, we will return to shore and walk back to the lodge.
Lodge plated meal.
At the lodge, we will meet our kayak instructors for tomorrow’s trip and receive a short orientation for our coming adventures.
