Prince William Sound Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise

Prince William Sound Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise

Departing from Whittier, Alaska

Come aboard the Kenai Star for a memorable cruise to the most spectacular glaciers in Prince William Sound. Our 4.5 hour Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise departs daily from Whittier and ventures into the calm, protected waters of Prince William Sound, where seasickness is highly unlikely. The best option for the glacier enthusiast, this cruise spends time in front of two active tidewater glaciers and one active hanging glacier to maximize your chances of seeing spectacular glacier calving, where massive chunks of glacial ice crash into the water. Enjoy your time floating among the icebergs as the massive Blackstone and Beloit Glaciers tower 700 feet over the 76-foot vessel. Nine named alpine and cirque glaciers are visible in the nearby mountains as we cruise. You will also see breathtaking scenery, towering waterfalls, and wildlife such as eagles, harbor seals, sea otters, and bird rookeries, all from the relaxing comfort of our Coast Guard-certified ship.

Please Note: The town of Whittier is only accessible via the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, the longest highway tunnel in North America. Since vehicles and trains share the same tunnel, access to and from Whittier is available only at pre-specified times. Please plan on traveling to Whittier through the 10:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. tunnel for this cruise. More information about the tunnel, driving directions, and transportation options can be found below, in the “How to Get Here” section.

How to Get Here

Our Prince William Sound Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise departs daily from Whittier, Alaska. Whittier is a remote Alaskan town that can only be reached via the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, the longest highway tunnel in North America. The tunnel is located at the end of Portage Glacier Road. Since vehicles and trains share the same tunnel, access to and from Whittier is available only at pre-specified times. Passengers on our Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise must travel to Whittier through the 10:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. tunnel. We recommend that you arrive at the tunnel 10 minutes prior to the tunnel opening.
