Yesterday (Sunday, June 12th), we cruised into Yakutat Bay and spent several hours viewing the massive Hubbard Glacier. Today (Monday, June 13th) we spent most of the day cruising through Glacier Bay. Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve is home to the continent’s largest collection of tidewater glaciers. We saw numerous glaciers but our favorite was the Margerie Glacier as we were lucky enough to see it calving. It sounded like a cannon when the massive bergs hit the water and sent tons of water spraying high into the air. Margerie Glacier flows at a rate of 7 feet per day. Although far away, there were mountain goat, humpback whales, seals, sea otters, Bald Eagles and brown bear sightings. We never tire of seeing the panorama of mountains. Randy summed it up perfectly, “It’s like floating through a postcard”. We hope you enjoy our glacier pictures!

Hoping for good weather in Skagway tomorrow for our Helicopter Dog Sledding Excursion!!
