Alaska is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and it offers visitors countless options when it comes to sightseeing and nature exploration. If you’re planning on visiting Alaska and want to see some beautiful sights, you should consider checking out Blackstone Bay. This gorgeous area has plenty of recreation and sightseeing in store for visitors, especially those who wish to experience the thrill of glacier tours in Alaska. Read on to find out more about the particulars of a guided Blackstone Bay tour with Alaska Wild Guides.
Our tours to Blackstone Bay
Blackstone Bay is characterized by the massive Blackstone Glacier, located just three miles away from Whittier. Lots of people kayak Blackstone Bay in a single day, but multi-day glacier tours in Alaska enable you to spend more time taking in the beautiful sights and exploring this incredible natural area. At Alaska Wild Guides, we offer three-day glacier tours to Decision Point in Blackstone Bay. This tour is full of incredible opportunities for sightseeing and recreation. Tour members will be provided with fresh-cooked meals, nightly campfires and comfortable camping accommodations to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. Here are some more details:
Departure and travel to Decision Point: The tour group meets at 9:00 a.m. in Whittier to receive orientation and gear for the trip. Tour members will load onto sailing kayaks and leave the shore for a five-mile trek along the coastline to Shotgun Cove. On this beach, tour members can explore a historic shipwreck and enjoy lunch before heading out to Decision Point to camp for the night.
Camping at 17 Mile: On the morning of the second day, tour members will eat breakfast and depart Decision Point to kayak along nine miles of coastline before reaching 17 Mile, where we set up camp. Tour guides will prepare another meal for tour members and then lead a quick kayak trip to Lawrence Glacier for a short hike before returning back to camp for the night.
Sightseeing and return: Tour members will leave their camp gear on the beach at 17 Mile before departing for sightseeing of Blackstone Glacier. Tour members will have the opportunity to watch Blackstone Glacier calve ice into the ocean while enjoying lunch on the beach. A water taxi will pick up tour members to bring them back to Whittier, where they can enjoy a farewell dinner with the group at the Inn at Whittier.
