Glacier Tours Whale Watching Sea Kayaking

A visit to LeConte Glacier is a must for visitors to Petersburg. We travel through spectacular Leconte Bay fjord, winding our way among thousands of deep-blue icebergs to get a view of this natural wonder. Seeing huge chunks of ice falling into the water with a thunderous roar is an unbelievable sight. This trip takes approximately 4-5 hours.

Cost is $200/person

A longer trip allows time to stop and hike among icebergs left stranded onshore by our big tides.This option is only available when tides allow, call or email for times. 5-6 hours.

Cost is $225/person

Frederick Sound is one of the best places in the world to see Humpback whales. We offer a full day (7-8 hours) trip to see these amazing animals in their summer feeding grounds. We have a hydrophone onboard to listen in if they are vocalizing. We might also see Orca, sea lions, porpoise, and a variety of bird-life on this trip. if weather conditions allow, we may stop at a remote island for some beach-combing and a rain-forest hike.

Cost is $300/person for 2 to 3 passengers, $275/person for 4 to 6 passengers.

We offer the unique opportunity to sea kayak through the spectacular ice bergs of LeConte Bay. For many, this is a once in a lifetime experience. Start with a trip to LeConte Glacier, southernmost tidewater glacier in North America and one of the fastest moving glaciers in the world. We’ll watch the birth of the bergs as they calve off the face of the glacier. On our way out of the fjord, we’ll stop for an hour or two of kayaking among floating bergs, many looking like giant blue crystals.

We can arrange other kayaking adventures as well. Contact us to discuss options.

5 to 6 hours. $285/person
