A great experience, not to be missed! Professional crew, great at finding the wildlife, nothing like being 1/4 mile from a calving glacier.
The sights were just fantastic. We saw several pods of orca whales, sea lions, a black bear, doll sheep and a hump back whale.
The scenery was great. Despite of bad weather, we spotted sea lions, puffins and a bald eagle along the way. Crew members were very friendly and food was good. Portions of the ride is bumpy, so taking motion sickness medicine is highly recommended.
This was our best experience in Alaska! The cruise was great, the boat's crew and captain were professional and very knowledgeable. The park ranger on board was able to point out locations as we cruised by and had a wealth of information about the park, glacier, and animals. Don't pass up the buffet: it is worth every cent! The food was wonderful and fresh! But back what we saw -- we paused beside a whale-study boat that was watching a group of Orcas, it was an amazing group of huge whales. Then as we traveled closer to the glacier, we witnessed a large fin emerging from the water and slapping the surface. One fin was soon joined with another fin, both slapping the surface, the humpback whales were scaring small schools of fish toward their baby so it could learn to fish. After several minutes of seeing several whales at the surface, one finally breached. It is hard to describe the massive size of these whales--the water surrounding them shot up and boiled. The entire cruise was great -- a must-do!
Great experience! Facilities were good, food was great. All of the wildlife didn't cooperate totally....LOL!
The weather cooperated and we had a great time. I had 2 college age adults with me from Oregon. The water, mountains, glaciers, wildlife were moments that we will remember forever. The boat was very comfortable and the captain/guides helpful and friendly. We loved our day.
We saw 5 humpback breaches, 2 pods of killer whales. several sea lions, sea otters, and puffins. Beautiful scenery as well highlighted by the glaciers. The ship provided ample viewing spots and the crew did a good job.
We were very pleased with the cruise. We saw humpback whales 2 breaching, orca whales, puffins, sea otters, sea lions, eagles, seals and the very cool actually frozen haha Holgate glacier up close.
Trip was great. Just enough narration with good solid info. Food was delicious and reserved seating is the way to go.
