Glacier Bay Adventure Cruise

Alaskan Wilderness and Remote Solitude

Glacier Bay National Park is a natural sanctuary that offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a remote and sublime setting. At nearly 3.3 million acres you’ll be surrounded by a dynamically rugged and wild landscape, where glaciers wind out of high mountain valleys to meet the sea, and Alaska’s most iconic wildlife thrive. Every day there’s a chance to encounter wildlife such as humpback whales, killer whales, black bears and brown bears, sea otter and sea lions, tufted puffins, red-throated loons, and bald eagles. Each day ends in a new anchorage where you can absorb all the wild beauty that Glacier Bay National Park has to offer.

Comments from Previous Passengers:

“Seeing glacier Margerie for the first time … seeing seals, sea otters, a moose, a bear, and a pair of oystercatchers … and by no means last, Christine’s consummate skill with a wood stove.”

–   Elisabeth B.


“The essentially private access you get with the David B to experience Glacier Bay was just fantastic! I spent a lot of time in the pilot house with Jeffrey, just soaking up all of his knowledge about the area. Christine took extra care with my food restrictions and I still savor the memory of her pan au chocolate!”

–  Mike G.
