There are interesting characteristics at each glacier. This area is really spectacular and the rugged and beautiful Bear Glacier is well worth seeing. You should take a tour to really get the best view.

Saw Bear Glacier from our Major Marine Boat Trip and it is HUGE! I would consider booking a tour that brings you close for pictures.

it is so beautiful out here that if you have the chance to do a SUP or kayak tour out here with Liquid Adventure I would HIGHLY recommend it. This is a DO NOT MISS place to see.

This was my first glacier close up, so we were awestruck. This glacier is massive, the icebergs ghat have calves off are huge themselves. It is definitely worth a visit.

Absolutely incredible view. We took a kayaking trip out to Bear Glacier with Adventure Sixty North, and it was the highlight of our week in Alaska. The helicopter ride in is pricey, but worth every penny.

We spent the most amazing day sea kayaking in this area. We had just had an earthquake, so the iceburgs were incredable to kayak around as well as a great helicopter in to get to the destination. Really quiet and remote, well worth the extra exspense compared to other trips.

If you like to kyak and want to get close enough to spit on the glaciers, take this adventure. The glacier is long and beautiful, and it calves into the water on a regular basis. Well worth the experience!

We had a friend that has a small jet boat, offer to take us out to Bear Glacier. My 5 year old granddaughter had a blast going out in Resurrection Bay, riding the waves. The boat was able to navigate out to the glacier thru the passage carved out by last years extreme caving that opened a larger opening in... More
