We had a great time on this boat trip to Surprise Glacier and we were happy that they had the option of buying the dinner or bringing your lunch since a couple of us have food challenges.

What a beautiful place to visit. Glaciers, mountains and lakes all around, and the air was so clean and crisp. I took Highway 1 to Whittier, and enjoyed a boat trip. LOVELY - perfect day trip from Anchorage.

A few hours of cruising around the glaciers is awesome! The guides are very knowledgable and give you ample time to stop and take pictures. Don't forget to dress warm while you are on the trip (it gets really windy)

We rented a car to Whittier and took the cruise around the Sound. We got to see some whales frollicking and some sea lions. Very beautiful scenery. The Phillip's cruise had a ranger aboard who did an excellent job in explaining what we were seeing. The meal wa snothing special but adequate. Very enjoyable.

We go to Prince William Sound every now and then to go shrimping and salmon fishing. The starting point is Whittier. We love the wilderness and scenerery that affords Prince William Sound.
