Default Major Marine Tours

We're considering Major Marine's half-day Prince William Sound tour which goes to Blackstone and Beloit glaciers. Anyone out there know where these glaciers are located? Our cruise ship will take us into College Fjord so I would rather not do the trip if that is where these glaciers are located.

Any other suggestions for day cruises out of Whittier would be appreciated.

I don't recommend any 1/2 day tours out of Seward, they barely get out of the bay, these glaciers are not College Fjords.

26 Glaciers out of Whittier is excellent operated by Phillips Cruises and Tours.

Thanks Karen, but the trip is not out of Seward -- rather Whittier and I am looking for something other than College Fjord since our ship will be visiting there. We considered the all day Kenai Fjords -- but the purpose of getting to Anchorage early is to get acclimated, get over jet lag, enjoy the area on our own for a few days before our Tour of the Interior so we opted not to do the all-day trip this time as it is an extremely long day.

Marilyn thanks for the input -- we looked at 26 glaciers, but too fast paced for us ... we want to spend some time at the glaciers and at least for this time around would rather see fewer at a slower pace. We do, however, plan on doing the 26 glaciers the next time we go up to Alaska ... I already have decided once is not going to be enough.
