See the Davidson Glacier up close, from the vantage point of our 30-foot Voyager Canoes. The Glacier Point Wilderness Safari brings you into the Alaskan Wilderness and gives you a taste of the “True Alaska”.Your adventure begins at your cruise ship where we’ll board a high-speed vessel made for wildlife viewing en route to an Alaskan paradise. We’ll ply the waters of the deepest Fjord in North America with a naturalist guide, watching for whales, sea lions, porpoise, and many other species of marine wildlife. We land at Glacier Point and board our Safari Buses for a short drive over the terminal moraines. Our award-winning guides share with you the wonders of this Glacial Wilderness. A quarter mile hike will lead us to the iceberg-studded lake where we’ll paddle our canoes to the face of the glacier. This is an ideal family adventure and one you won’t soon forget!

This was an excellent excursion. We scheduled it independently of the cruise line; however, 2/3 of the people on the tirp were from our ship but had scheduled through the cruise line. Captain Jane and Captain Conner (acting naturalist) did an excellent job of ensuring...More

We had seen many other glaciers at a distance earlier on our cruise, but as seen up close and personal, Davidson Glacier was magnificent! While we were not able to get close enough to touch the glacier face that day, we were definitely close enough...More

I think the distance is between 1/4 to 1/2 mike none of the walks are steep. With an arm to hang on to you should be fine . The walk to the glacier is like walking through semi hard sand. The trail through the forest is... More
