Anchorage Prince William Sound Glacier Tour

Excursion Overview

Witness Alaska’s most rugged mountain peaks and the bluest blues of glaciers

Prince William Sound is a magnificent region with 15,000 square miles of fjords and inlets, scores of tidewater glaciers, and rich in cold water marine life habitat. Enjoy the chance to catch sight of Dall sheep high atop their rocky perches in the Chugach Mountains. View scores of tidewater glaciers as they "calve" into icy blue waters.

Watch with amusement as floating sea otters "kickback" and relax in the Sound. Take a look at the glaciers from the last ice age and have the chance to taxi up to a large cascading waterfall hidden in a secluded bay as an optional stop. Be on the lookout for whales, seals, bald eagles, otters, and black bears. View sea lions sunning themselves on the rocky coastline. When the salmon are running, black bears can be seen fishing in the streams of Saw Mill Bay.

Depart from Lake Hood, the world's largest and busiest floatplane base, and fly east over the Chugach Mountain Range to see "hanging" glaciers and alpine valleys into another world: Prince William Sound. Make a photo stop landing at a secluded cove before returning to Anchorage. Flight routes can vary according to weather; your pilot will fly the best route for the best flightseeing depending on the conditions on your day of the flight.

The Prince William Sound Tour is 3-hours long in a floatplane. This tour gives a beautiful overhead view of Prince William Sound and the marine environment that it hosts. If the weather permits, the pilot can land for a photo stop and to stretch your legs. This version also explores the Columbia Glacier, the Sound's large tidewater glacier.
