JUNE 21, 2017 - SUMMER SOLSTICE: Celebrate under the midnight sun on Summer Solstice! Our Solstice Sunset Glacier Cruise & Coach package departs from Anchorage at 4:30 p.m. or Girdwood at 5:30 p.m.. Follow the scenic shoreline along Turnagain Arm as you travel down the Seward Highway to Whittier, Alaska. Transit through North America's longest shared rail and vehicle tunnel to reach Whittier, Alaska.
The first-class M/V Klondike Express will depart at 7:15 PM and cruise to Blackstone Bay. Waterfalls and towering mountains create the frame for the beauty of the glaciers in Blackstone Bay. Get up close to ancient ice and listen for the glacier to shift, indicating that a calving is about to occur. Watch for wildlife along the way. We commonly see harbor seals, kittiwakes, bald eagles and more!
A complimentary hot meal is served shortly after departure. Hot tea, coffee and ice water are complimentary at self-serve stations on board. Beer, wine and spirits can be purchased at our bar, along with snacks and gift shop items. Our captains will provide the narration on the evening cruise. We offer a "no seasickness guarantee" due to our stable, high-speed catamarans. After the cruise, your coach will return to Girdwood at 10:45 p.m. and Anchorage at 11:30 p.m.
