Don't miss this boat ride. It was very educational and informative. The staff were extremely friendly. Got a chance to talk to an Alaskan native staff whose grandfather was a whaling captain supporting food for the whole village during winter months. Also visited her mother at Alaska Native Heritage Center at Anchorage. My conclusion: Alaska natives are very very friendly

We went to the Portage Glacier visitor center.the center is very nice. The employees are very informed & pleasant. They told us about the Portage Glacier Cruises. We sped over there & got to the boat just in time to board for the 4:30 trip. The Captain took us across the lake close to the glacier. It was amazing being so close. There were also some good sized Icebergs. The crew were great. This was a wonderful experience.

Stopped here while on a tour because the driver said there was a huge iceberg on the lake. I was amazed at the color of the ice. It was so blue!!! The visitor center is very nice with exhibits. I watched a movie also which lasted 20 minutes. Definately worth a visit. Make sure to stop and see the spawning salmon at the viewing area!!

It was very clean, excellent parking. The Visitor center was very nice and the staff could answer all your questions. I was a little disappointed that we couldn't see the Glacier from the Center without taking a hike.
