  • This was honestly one of my favorite parts of our trip to Alaska! Sabrina was very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed the calming atmosphere. The captain allowed plenty of time at the glacier so we were sure to have lots of time for pictures.

  • Wow! Just wow! The boat ride is fun and informative. The glacier is incredible, and the boat takes you closer to the Portage Glacier than any other glacier I've been able to see.

  • The glacier is worth the trip, the narration was great too, just amazing what a close up is and if you truly take it in. Otherwise this short trip was short and cool.

  • Nice boat ride to a glacier. Just takes two hours instead of a day long trip
