Aboard our comfortable, stable boat, you'll travel through dramatically different ecosystems - moving from the fully developed rainforest that surrounds Glacier Bay Lodge to the lichen encrusted rocks that exist on the edges of the massive tidewater glaciers of the park.
Midway through the day, the Baranof Wind arrives at the faces of the Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers, two towering masses of ice and snow rising 245 feet above the ocean and stretching another 100 feet beneath the water. The ice that calves from the face of the two glaciers is an average of 200 years old - so in a way, watching the ice break off of the glaciers is like watching the passage of time. This completes your great Alaska Vacation.
