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.

Kayaked to Bear Glacier, amazing site, could sit there all day and listen to the glacier caving! The seals are so cute on the ice and pop up out the water to visit you.

Depends of what mode of transportation you prefer. Liquid adventure kayaks are two person. Whereas with a SUP it’s just you. Personally I prefer the kayak cause you are paddling through ice.
