Flightseeing tour to Columbia Glacier by floatplane

Sea otters on Columbia Glacier

Take flight on a scenic three hour flightseeing tour across Prince William Sound Glacier, a majestic wilderness area of over 15,000 square miles of fjords, inlets, and rugged mountain peaks. While it is possible to see a few glaciers on other tours from Anchorage, this trip is unsurpassed, flying above dozens of apron and tidewater glaciers.

The highlight of this trip is a visit to Columbia Glacier, Prince William Sound's largest tidewater glacier, breathtaking with its vast amount of ice at the water's edge. Here, you'll have the chance to see glaciers calving into the sound and sea otters basking in the sun on the floating icebergs. The sound's clear sea waters produce an area rich with marine life. Watch for whales, seals, eagles, otters, and even black bears.

Total duration is three hours.
