What You'll Get
Get picked up at the Anchorage Visitors Center 20 minutes prior to tour departure time. Board a shuttle for a scenic drive along the tidal flats of the Turnagain Arm. Watch the surrounding mountains for Dall sheep on rocky precipices, keep your eyes on the water to spot beluga whales, and listen to your guide share facts about the area's history, from its discovery by Captain Cook to the 1800s Gold Rush.
At the 140-acre (57-ha) Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, check out more than 12 species of native Alaskan animals in majestic settings. Find out about the center's mission to provide refuge for orphaned, injured, and ill animals that can’t survive in the wild, and learn how they've cared for hundreds of displaced animals thanks to generous visitors. Don't forget to swing by the gift shop to browse a wide selection of souvenirs and then head out to board your boat.
Take an unforgettable glacier cruise right up to the face of Portage Glacier, just 50 miles (80 km) south of Anchorage. Motor to within 300 feet (91 m) of the mammoth wall of ice and listen for the unmistakable rumbling of a calving glacier, waiting for the movement when a huge block of ice crashes into the lake.
