Meares Glacier Cruise Excursion from Valdez
Immerse yourself in the natural Alaskan world during this full-day cruise to Meares Glacier from Valdez. Your local captain and crew will deftly guide the boat through tranquil Prince William Sound and tell you about the area’s history along the way. Look out for wildlife; common sights are eagles, puffins, harbor seals, sea otters and even whales. When you finally arrive at Meares Glacier you’ll be mesmerized by the intense sight and sound of ice falling off the glacier face. A delicious lunch is included in the tour.
What to Expect
Cruise the majestic waters of Prince William Sound from Valdez to Meares Glacier. In route our local captains will travel the shorelines looking for the wildlife that call the Sound home.   This tour has the time to travel the locations where we typically spot sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions, Humpback or Orca Whales, porpoise, eagles, puffins, cormorants and more. Meares Glacier, an advancing tidewater glacier, is nestled in the back of a narrow fjord, providing you the opportunity to view the face of this glacier in conditions that allow you to hear the thundering roar as the ice calves (falls) from the glacier face. On board your all-Alaskan captain and crew will share with you stories about the history of the Sound from early explorers, gold and copper mining, oil shipping, commercial fishing and the 1964 Earthquake.

Best cruise to Glacier in Valdez!!!

We have visited Meares Glacier with this company, and it was absolutely amazing. It took 8.5 hour, and most of the time the ship stops near animals: seal, sea lions, otters, orcas and whales.
