Glacier Bay National Park Day trips

Glacier Bay Exploration Tour

Glacier Bay National Park Day Trip Tour

This exclusive Charter takes you on an intimate cruise into Glacier Bay National Park. Schedule your departure from the dock as you wish for 8-hour custom Glacier Bay tours in Gustavus, AK.

The vessel departs Bartlett Cove, returning in time for dinner at a local lodge of your choosing or in time for the daily Alaska Air flight. Along the way, we will often see Humpback Whale, Orca, Seal, Sea Lion, Mountain Goat, Brown and/or Black Bear, Eagles, Puffin, Surf Scoter, and a myriad of Bird life. Glacier Bay hosts a very unique array of Bird-Life. It is possible to view birds that only occur here, in this semi-arctic environment, nestled among a Temperate Rain Forest. We have the opportunity to view numerous species of birds as they nest, feed, and tend to their fledgling young.

Available on board is a complete listing of birds possible to see within the Bay, along with a full-color guide to help you to identify the various species we will encounter. We are able to spend some time drifting at the face of a Tidewater Glacier, listening to the awesome roar of a moving river of ice, and watching giant chunks of ice drop into the ocean with a dramatic splash…. This is a day you will not soon forget!


Charter rate is $2,800 for up to 6 guest.
