Cruised Prince William Sound from Whittier to Valdez. Weather was overcast and raining. This however did not detract from the magnificent sights. Able to get close the the glaciers and wildlife.

I have spent many summer days and nights out in Prince William Sound. Typically I leave from Whittier and spend 2 or 3 nights out on my boat. The fishing is great! Scuba diving is great! Hunting is Great and the scenery is fantastic! Rent, charter, beg, buy, or steal a boat and go explore!!! You will love it!

Excellent trip! If you can only do PSW or the Kenai Fjords, pick this one. The water is calm and it's just a great trip!

Arctic nature. Fun trip. Great views. The boat trip had a very good all-you-can-eat buffet that passed the time until you got to the glaciers.

I lived onHinchinbrook Island in Prince William Sound for many years and say this is paradise. Wild life galore. Kayak and you may see whales, porpoises,salmon, seals, otters and scenery beyond compare. If you take a glacier cruise you will see as good a glacier as in the SE Alaska. These tours are out of Whittier. Take the ferry between... More

Took the 6 hour boat tour and it was awesome. Older boat but very comfortable. We saw many sea animals and the experience was priceless.

We had a fantastic tour of Alaska on board the 'Discovery' in Prince William Sound and in Denali National Park. The personnel on board and travelling were knowledgeable, friendly, fun and flexible and could not do enough for us. All the passengers got on so well it made a fabulous holiday. We saw all the gorgeous animals you hope to... More

All of Alaska is a postcard! Prince William Sound is no different. The view is breathtaking. The wind off the water is very brisk.
