If you’re traveling in Southeast Alaska, you M-U-S-T see Glacier Bay National Park. It’s about 60 miles from Juneau–and it takes some planning to get there. There’s plenty of ice to go around, as this photo shows!
Right now there’s a new package available from Juneau, Skagway or Haines. It includes roundtrip air fare to/from Gustavus, airport transfers to the cruise dock at Bartlett Cove and a full-day Glacier Bay cruise (whoo-boy!).
I’ve taken the cruise. Here’s a photo of a humpback whale:Watch for bear (brown and black), eagles (lots of ’em), puffins, sea lions, seals, sea otters…oh….did I mention the glaciers? The captain and the park ranger know which glaciers are really active–and they cruise up close! It’s really a great trip.
Cost from Juneau is $242 per person. Again–this is a great cruise deal. Check the site right now, or call (888) 229-8687.
