Anchorage, Alaska  |  Lazy Otter Charters and Greatland Adventures Blackstone Glacier Cruise
March 22, 2020
The perfect winter wonderland scene: our journey up Blackstone Bay takes us along the shores of this fascinating fjord carved by the ancient glaciers on their great retreat.  It is an epic story of the powers between ice and granite. Live the history of glaciations as we cruise among the sheer cliff walls, wide glacier outwash streams, and deep groves and striations scoured in the rock walls.

We will depart Anchorage by van and travel along Turnagain Highway, a National Scenic Byway, to Whittier. Whittier is accessible via a one-way tunnel -the longest highway tunnel in North America – Once in Whittier we will board the boats for a 3.5 hour Blackstone Glacier Cruise. In less than one hour from Whittier you will be sitting at the face two tidewater glaciers, Beloit and Blackstone and see the numerous waterfalls and hanging glaciers, remnants of giant glacier’s retreat.  In route, we’ll stop to photo sea otters and harbor seals that make their home in this part of the sound. Our vessels are beachable so we will pull up on shore where you can get off for a beach walk to experience the wilderness and natural geology and thick rain forest.  Enjoy a snack and hot drink as you reflect on your journey and this magnificent nook of Alaska.
