I have seen a lot of glaciers in my time, but this boat trip was in a different league all together.
Advertised as 26 glaciers in total, I expected that the tour company was including icebergs just to bump the numbers up.
I was so wrong.
We saw spectacular rivers of ice after ice and at Surprise Glacier we went pretty close to where it comes into the water and were rewarded with a tower of ice crashing into the sea right in front of us. The seals languishing on a berg didn't bat an eyelid.
We also saw lots of sea otters floating around on their backs, winning the coolest animal ever award in my book.
I totally recommend this trip out of Whittier, Alaska.
