We took a tour on this 137' catamaran and viewed 26 glaciers.(Alpine, Tidewater, and Piedmont). Wildlife included harbor seals, sea lions, humpback whales, orcas, dall's porpoise, sea otters, eagles, kittiwake rookeries, and other waterfowl.
Whittier, Alaska is a beautiful little seaport town. We loved it. It is accessible by car only via a 2.5 tunnel that goes straight through the middle of a moutain - solid rock sides - and the tunnel is shared with the railroad so cars can only go through at regular intervals. The tunnel closes in early evening so plan carefully or you may spend the night in Whittier!
