Hop aboard your boat at the Valdez Small Boat Harbor to begin your cruise to Columbia Glacier. Start by traveling through the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Terminal and get a peek at commercial salmon fishing operations.
From there, head to Columbia Bay to see the Columbia Glacier, the largest tidewater glacier in Southcentral Alaska. Learn about the geology, history, and local wildlife of the area from your onboard guide.
