Alaska Marine Highway to Whittier vs Columbia Glacier Cruise

Will we see the same sights on the Alaska Marine Highway from Valdez to Whittier as we would by taking the Columbia Glacier Cruise?

Nope. The ferry is basic a commuter trip. The glacier cruise will get you much closer.

We took the Columbia Glacier cruise last summer and highly recommend it. This year will be back to do the longer Meares Glacier cruise (plus the ferry from Whittier to Valdez)
