Touring Knik Glacier was one of the highlights of my 2017 Alaska trip. Our guide Randy was awesome and even provided activity suggestions for the rest of our trip. As the glacier is not connected by road, you are truly alone in the Alaskan wilderness....More

Had a great tour with Tom and Randy. I believe this tour is one of the best values in Alaska! Unbelievable views of the Knik glacier and wildlife. Take this tour, you won’t regret it.

Highly recommend to anyone who wants to see a glacier up close without paying the exhorbitant price of a helicopter ride.

They haven’t even informed about bad weather until I called and the tour was cancelled. It’s a waste of our time. When I first made reservation , neither confirmation number was provided nor an email was sent.

Please do not skip this tour! It’s absolutely a must-do! You take a fun ride on a truck to the river and then you take a small speed boat to the glacier. First you ride through the beautiful scenery with flowers, mountains, lakes and a...More

Lots of fun to ride the transport truck and air boat and the glacier is amazing. The two guides we had were friendly and they were both Alaskans with great stories. The tours do sell out so I recommend booking in advance.

Loved every minute of this. Tom was amazing. The big military trick and the boat were so cool and loved walking close to the icebergs.

This is a great way to check off a few of the "Must Do's" in Alaska. A bit of offroad driving, some river running on a jet boat, and great views of a glacier. Probably will see moose, we saw three including a mother and...More

Not really. I used yelp when I was up there to figure things out. But the base headquarters place is at least 10 miles from any restaurant as I recall. After the glacier tour we went to the reindeer place down the road and... More

I am sure that if you call them 907-745-1577 they can schedule you. Their boat is large and can handle several people. The suggestion to contact them on their web site is also good.
