Discover Prince William Sound on a Day Cruise

Took an all day cruise to Meares Glacier aboard the Valdez Spirit, with Stan Stephens Glacier & Wildlife Cruises. In addition to seeing the Glacier, we saw lots of birds & mammals on the way out & back - bald eagles, pigeon guillemots, puffins, steller sea lions, sea otters, dall's porpoises, harbor seals & even humpback whales. One was nice enough to breech right in front of us - thank you very much! Meares Glacier is nice because the boat can get up very close to it, in among all the glacier ice that has fallen off recently. We even saw (& heard) some glacier calving while we were there! The captain was great with lots of interesting facts about the area, including info on the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Well worth the time & money if you are in Valdez.
