Explore the Mendenhall Glacier in a unique new way during this scenic and memorable canoeing adventure.

This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.

Depart the pier for the transfer to the Mendenhall Glacier. Upon arrival, you will receive your safety and canoeing instructions, then begin paddling amongst the icebergs located near the Mendenhall Glacier during this scenic adventure aboard a stable, 12-person traditional native canoe, the only way to get to the face of the Mendenhall Glacier.

Along the way, you will soak in the serenity of Mendenhall Lake, where the canoe's quiet paddles are the only propulsion allowed. Bring extra film or memory for your camera to capture the breathtaking scenery. A stop will be made to stretch your legs by roaring Nugget Falls, which is located just a few hundred yards from the glacial face. You and your group will also be served an Alaskan snack, and listen as your guide explains the natural history and native lore relating to your surroundings.

Following your visit, you will be transferred back to the pier.
