Great time, beautiful kayaking, Corey was a good guide. Bumpy jet boat ride to the lake, but it was worth it.

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.

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.

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.

My husband and I hiked with Alex, our guide with Adventure 60 North. The hike up to the glacier was moderate in terms of elevation gain and quite lovely with excellent views of the glacier. The hike on the glacier was nicely facilitated by Alex,...More

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.
