Cool to get close to the glacier. It has receded enough and formed a river in front that couldn't be crossed to be able to walk on the glacier. Trip in an enclosed boat for about an hour, then canoe approximately 2 miles, then walking to get closer to the glacier. The environmentalists had lots of good information to share as well as fun stories.

We booked via our cruise ship and enjoyed this tour immensely. A 5 min bus trip from cruise ship to speed boat and we were off. Great scenery - we saw seals and counted 25 bald eagles in the treetops. At our destination, another short bus ride to kit up in life jackets and paddles ready for the 31 foot canoe ride to Davidson Glacier. We walked the rocky beach but a fast moving river of glacial melt prevented us from reaching the glacier itself. We had plenty of time to explore before heading back for a picnic lunch (turkey sandwich, trail mix, apple purée & bottled water). Then it was back on the speed boat for the ride back to Skagway. All the staff involved were informative , helpful and entertaining. Highly recommended.

Glacial Point Wilderness Safari is a very popular on-shore excursion from the cruise ships which was fully sold out, so do pre-book early if you are keen. From the port, we went on an hour expedition boat ride (around 22 to 24 passengers). There is a naturalist onboard the boat explaining about this area, but I opted to sit outside to enjoy the fresh air and incredible scenery instead. We saw bald eagles and seals. Upon arrival, we are served with a Turkey sandwich, apple sauce, trail mix and water for a simple lunch. Thereafter, we then take a 1 mile bus ride near a forest trail to get outfitted in water-proof attire (if you desire), boots, life vest and a paddle. We trek through the Tongass National Forest with uneven and rocky terrain for around 10 minutes. It is interesting that this is the second largest rainforest in the world (after the Amazon). We paddle a 31-foot canoe (seats around 8) for the initial 10 minutes, then the guide uses the motor instead. Remote Glacial Point is a serene and scenic spot of Alaska. We then walk approximately 10 minutes over a tranquil but pebbly and rocky beach area to get closer to Davidson Glacier. Unfortunately, there is a deep river, so we cannot get close enough to Davidson glacier to touch it. See it while this is still a valley glacier, but may sadly become a hanging glacier shortly, due to it retreating from global warming. Helen Lim Singapore

I felt like I was experiencing the Alaskan frontier. This was physically stimulating and visually spectacular with a lot of great education. They kept my attention the whole time and my eyes were mesmerized by the scenery. I highly recommend and it was very easy working with them as a company. We saved a significant amount of money booking with them directly. You will be happy that you chose this tour!
