  Port Map

Glacier Bay is nearly 80 km (50 miles) long, located on the coast of southeastern Alaska, around 160 km (100 miles) northwest of Juneau. Glacier Bay was named by Capt. Lester A. Beardslee of U.S. Navy in 1880. Glacier Bay is noted for the unique display of 16 active glaciers descending from lofty ice-draped St.Elias Range to the east and Fairweather Range to the west. Ships are required to pick up Park Ranger from a launch at Galcier Bay's entrance and proceed under his direction. Most cruise vessels will proceed down the northwest arm of the Bay to Tarr Inlet, Margerie and Grand Pacific glaciers. The chances to view calving of ice into the sea are very good there.

Nearby is Johns Hopkins inlet that contains 9 separate glaciers including the advancing John Hopkins Glacier. Glacier Bay's northeastern arm is Muir Inlet. It leads to 2-mile wide retreating Muir Glacier. The landscape ranges from lush forests of hemlock and spruce to rocky ice-swept terrain. Wildlife includes the mountain goat, black and brown bear, seal, sea lion, puffin, whale, cormorant and eagle. The entrance to the bay is good for whale spotting. 


Highlights: Spectacular tidewater glaciers

Glacier Bay cruise terminal

As there is no dedicated port, big-sized cruise ships to Glacier Bay often stop so their passengers can enjoy the national park's mesmerizing "icy scenery". As the ship will be also rotating 360-degree to maneuver, be sure to find a good vantage point onboard to view the glaciers and take pictures.Glacier Bay (Alaska) cruise ship

Smaller ships may offload their passengers via Zodiacs (large-capacity, motorized inflatable boats). Luxury cruise ships and mega-yachts additionally offer sea kayaking and other water sports activities via their aft-located marina platforms.
