Phillips Cruises & Tours, LLC/26 Glacier
- Glacier Cruises / Tours
Whittier Alaska is the western gateway to Prince William Sound where glaciers meet the sea. Gaze upon towering mountain peaks, watch for sea otters, harbor seals, whales, bears, mountain goats, birds, bald eagles and more in their natural environment. See massive rivers of glacier ice so close you can hear the thunderous sound of the ice calving into the ice-filled fjords. The 26 Glacier Cruise (5-hours) follows the Harriman Expedition route through Esther Passage, College, and Harriman Fjord. The Glacier Quest and Sunset Glacier Cruise (3.5-hours) explore Blackstone Bay.
