This was probably my favorite glacier I saw on the Major Marine Tours Northwestern Glacier cruise. It was really interesting to see it, and it has a cute story regarding a former president.

This glacier is very close to the water. It is beaytiful. We saw it from a bay cruise and it looked spectaculat but they didnt get us close enough for a good picture.

Took an early morning heli-kayak trip out there. Highly recommend. Totally surreal paddling amongst giant icebergs and seals. Glacier so huge you can't really get an idea of how big it is. Go with an experienced guide.

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.
