Far and away the most popular Alaska glacier tours are half-day wildlife and glacier cruises into either Prince William Sound or Kenai Fjords. Portage Glacier offers a super quick alternative to see a glacier up close. Even large-ship cruisers should hop aboard one of these boats to really feel the rumble of calving tidewater glaciers or hear the thrilling, unearthly song of whales.

The glacier rich waters of coastal Alaska are as pristine as they were a thousand years ago. And an Alaska glacier cruise is not just an unforgettable way to experience this unchanged call of the wild, but also the only way to see that quintessential Alaskan coastal scenery you've dreamed of.

You'll also get close to Alaska's marine mammals. Passing through gorgeous inlets and fjords, you'll look for bears, mountain goats, bald eagles, and puffins. Then sail into waters jumping with seals, porpoises, and sea lions.
