Whittier Sightseeing Tours and Activities

Print

Our Prince William Sound Cruise and Sea Kayaking Tours are featuring excellent wildlife viewing, magnificent scenery and calving tidewater glacier. Accessed from Whittier, Alaska, 60-miles (96.6 km) south of Anchorage, Prince William Sound is the more protected area with generally calmer seas. In fact, one tour company operating a catamaran in the Sound guarantees no seasickness upon a money-back return. The appeal of this cruise is mainly glaciers. Wildlife is often encountered such as sea otters, whales, sea birds and seals basking on floating icebergs, but it’s the incredible number of alpine, cirque, piedmont and active tidewater glaciers that are the most impressive aspect of these tours.
