The only tour of Glacier Bay is a boat trip run by the National Park service. You go where ever the boat goes that day. The only way I know that you can pick where to go in Glacier Bay is to do a multi-day overnight kayaking trip.

The park service boat trip is a full day excursion that I much enjoyed. I can't remember which part of Glacier Bay we visiting.

Hope this helps.

Ronit, I have seen quite a few of your questions........it would really be helpful to us who are trying to help, if you could keep you itinerary and questions all in one post........that way we can remember what and where you are going and you would receive more useful information......

I seem to recall you will be in Juneau, Glacier Bay, Haines-Haines Junction, Yukon Territory, and you will have children with you.....can you provide us with a more detailed itinerary, how many days in which places, what activities you are interested in ??.....

I am sure you could charter a boat for a private tour of Glacier Bay, but it gets complicated. nps.gov/glba has a list of authorized operators but be prepared to spend big bucks vs. taking the normally-schedule day tour.
