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.
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. During our adventure we’ll step ashore to experience the natural geology and thick rainforest. Enjoy a snack and hot drink as you reflect on your journey and this magnificent nook of Alaska.
