This place was so dead calm and eerily quiet apart from the sounds coming from the glaciers falling.I saw otters, dolphins and eagles whilst on the water. Well worth a visit once.

It was my first time in Alaska. Went on the 5-hour 26 Glacier Tour and it was incredible. Saw a lot of otters, seals and eagles. Our tour guide was well-informed and friendly.

We went to this half-day cruise. Lunch was served on board (fish+chips). The views of the glaciers were excellent. Watching so many glaciers for the first time was a real treat. It was quite a value for money..

We have been spending summers on Prince William Sound for 18 years now and we never tire of it. You can take a day trip to look at glaciers and never be disappointed, when you take a fishing charter, it is like you get a free sightseeing trip with it and kayaking is outstanding!

Every time I have been to Alaska, I can't stop being amazed by the Glaciers. I can look at them for hours and take multiple pictures. It is never the same view. Prince William Sound is the gateway to the glaciers. This is a must on any trip to Alaska.

Watching and hearing icebergs calving off the glaciers was amazing. Either take the boat from Valdez or Whittier, (the road to Valdez is beautiful, to Whittier you have to go through a long one way tunnel, and the town itself is ugly. But the sound is gorgeous.
