Overview
Phillips Cruises and Tours offers a unique and memorable way to view the beauty of the glaciers and wildlife of Prince William Sound in a pristine wilderness area. Conditions change daily due to weather, ice flows, and wildlife activity so our captains adapt to these changing conditions to provide the best cruise experience while keeping your safety and comfort a top priority. The crew is attentive throughout the cruise ensuring that your time with us is an enjoyable memory and a favorite highlight of your Alaska vacation.
Our tours are operated on first-class catamarans. Due to their dual hull design, these powerful high-speed catamarans are extremely stable and able to smoothly navigate through the narrow fjords and passages that lead us to the face of massive glaciers. By operating safely and efficiently, Phillips provides a comfortable cruise and our No Seasickness Guarantee assures nervous cruisers the confidence that they will enjoy our cruise without any unpleasant effects.
