AK Adventures | 26 Glaciers

In summer 2012, Steve's mom, sister and grandma decided to take a trip up to visit us. It was a week filled with lots of adventure, including a Phillip's 26 Glacier Cruise

The 26 Glacier Cruise departs from Whittier, AK and traverses 145 miles through the pristine passageways of Alaska's Prince William Sound. As I've mentioned in previous AK Adventures, I love the Sound. Not only is it gorgeous, it is one of the few places left in the world where a concentration of glaciers can be found in such abundance.

During this 5-hour cruise, we explored the serenity of Esther Passage, viewed majestic alpine and tidewater glaciers and Alaskan wildlife, such as stellar sea lions, sea otters, kittiwakes and bald eagles, all while traveling in luxurious comfort aboard the Klondike Express, the fastest catamaran in Alaska. We cruised face to face with towering masses of ice, so close that you could see their incredible blue hues and hear them move. To witness these massive walls of ice was truly an unforgettable experience.

Despite the rain (after all, they were on an adventure with Steve and Marla, the rain was inevitable and therefore planned for), it was an unforgettable day spent with family viewing ancient ice, curious wildlife, and the majestic scenery of Alaska.

  1. As always, Mar, you take the most gorgeous pictures!
    When we went to Alaska we also did a cruise, except it was three days. We departed in BC and got off at Juneau. It was amazing! I'll never forget it.


I would love to hear from you!
