SAIL on the mighty m/v Ptarmigan to the face of Portage Glacier!

m/v Ptarmigan near the face of Portage Glacier

Sail between May 14 and Sept 15, 2022 on the mighty m/v Ptarmigan. This one-hour cruise takes you up-close-and-personal up to the face of Portage Glacier.

History of Portage Glacier

Scientist Thomas Mendenhall gave the glacier its current name in 1898. Portage Glacier is located in Chugach National Forest, and is bordered by Portage Lake. A large amount of glacier is actually underwater in Portage Lake, more than 100 feet deep. Centuries ago, the glacier extended across the entire 14 miles of the Portage Valley but has since been separated, leaving behind many small glaciers in the area.

How to get to Portage Glacier

From Anchorage, Portage Glacier is just a short 54-mile drive south. Hop in the car for a beautiful drive down the scenic Turnagain Arm (keep an eye out for beluga whales to one side and Dall sheep to the other).
