My husband and I will be in southcentral Alaska for two weeks at the end of August. We have planned to take the all day Major Marine Tour out of Seward to see wildlife and out of Whittier to see glaciers. We had been planning to also take a day cruise out of Valdez to see the Columbia Glacier, but now we are wondering if this will be repetitious. We have read that the face of the Columbia Glacier needs to be clear to make the trip worthwhile. We also are ferrying from Valdez to Cordova and then from Cordova to Whittier. We will drive the Copper River Road and see the Childs Glacier there. Also, will we come close to the Columbia Glacier on the ferry?
Thanks for any advice.
