Small ship operator Alaskan Dream Cruises is lengthening its True Alaskan Family Cruises this year by adding an extra overnight stay and second day of exploration in Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve. The expanded itinerary will give active families the opportunity to spend more time in nature, exploring by foot or taking in panoramic views of the surrounding glaciers.
The tour includes two stops within the park: Bartlett Cove, which is located near the visitor center, and Reid Inlet, a remote wilderness area near Reid Glacier. Families can also visit “Snow,” the largest humpback whale skeleton exhibit in the country, as well as Huna Tribal House, the first permanent clan house in Glacier Bay in 250 years. A National Park Service ranger and a Huna Tlingit interpretive guide will be onboard, and children have the opportunity to become junior rangers, as well.
The price of the voyage begins at $4,390 per adult, and children ages 15 and under can receive a 30 percent discount.
