Less visited than the other places, therefore it is just you and your kayak group out there which is fantastic. Pure nature and it doesn't matter if it is foggy as the icebergs are more blue than on a sunny day. You can hear the ice cracking and see the icebergs calving, sea lions and bald eagles are close by.... More

Like being on some other planet - beautiful turquoise water with giant icebergs floating around. This year there are 3 times as many as last year. We kayaking w/ Adventure 60 North and it was the highlight of our trip. It was an adventure unto itself to find safe passage between the giant icebergs as they rolled, calved , crashed... More

It was really good to be able to actually see and experience a glacier up close. Good learning experience!

This is a must see while in Seward. From the parking lot (has bathrooms) it is just a one mile easy hike to the glacier. In addition to views of the glacier there are stunning scenic views.

15 years ago we took float plane here. They don't do this anymore. There were 5 of us & guide so, since helicopter only fits 4, half of us went at a time & waited while they got the rest of us. (You can also access by boat.) When we arrived, it was obvious that after a week of rain... More

We've been boating in the Seward area for many years and we always enjoy heading out of Resurrection Bay, past Caines Head, past Callisto Head, past the soaring and near vertical rocky shoreline, around the corner to Bear Glacier. It's an unexpected sight the first time you make the journey. The glacier itself ends behind the beach so you can't... More

I got to go paddle boarding through Liquid Adventures. Our guide was amazing, he did a great job explaining everything. It was my first time paddleboarding and he made me feel very comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly. And of course the views were incredible. I highly recommend going paddle boarding!,

Bear Glacier marks the beginning of the Kenai Fjords National Park from the East. It is the longest glacier in the park, measuring 13 miles long. Several hundred years ago this glacier laid down a large enough terminal moraine that it cut off its own travel to the tide water's edge. Terminal moraines are built at the face of every... More
