  Port Map

Glacier Bay is located on the coast of southeastern Alaska, approx 160 km (100 ml) northwest of Juneau. Glacier Bay has length of nearly 80 km (50 ml) and is noted for the unique display of 16 active glaciers descending from the ice-draped St Elias Mountain Range (to the east) and Fairweather Mountain Range (to the west).

Cruise ships are required to pick up a Park Ranger from Galcier Bay's entrance and proceed under his direction. Most vessels proceed down the bay's northwest arm to Tarr Inlet, Margerie and Grand Pacific glaciers. 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: 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.
