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 $250/person for 3 to 6 passengers, 3 person minimum

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 $295/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 $425/person for 2 passengers, $325/person for 3 to 6 passengers.
