it is so exciting to be right up close and personal to an active glacier, watch it calve, and see the wave of water move out from the blue center of the glacier up to your boat. there are thousands of glaciers in Alaska, but...More
We saw this glacier on a 6 hour National Park cruise with Major Marine Tours. The boat does not go very close to the glacier, but you can still experience its majesty. It is not a calving glacier. Still a beautiful scene with the bay...More
We were on a boat cruise so we couldn't get too close but the view we had was spectacular. There was a sand bar that prevented the boat from getting closer but we could see some icebergs in the lake beyond.
My husband and I spend two days in the Bear Glacier Camp Site supervised by Ron and Dane. The place is stunning!! We kayaked between icebergs and had two magical days there. We’ll cherish this experience forever. Thank you Ron and Dane for a great...More

First I highly recommend kayaking Bear glacier lake , the experience is unbelievable , but the location is not that easy to get to. You cannot hike there. We did look into taking a boat there, there is one company that does a boat but it is tide dependent and they don't have kayaks at the lake like John does. When I called to try and make a boat reservation it didn't actually work so helicoptering in became the only option. It was a beautiful flight and the pilot gave us a great scenic tour on the way in and out- I did not regret any of it or one penny spent. I too was struggling with several helicopter and flight plane tours. Don't miss this one, few people find this place !
