Tom was so friendly and very informative with the tour. Very personable. Even went above and beyond providing coffee and snacks after we explore the Glacier. Highly recommended.

Getting to the glacier is half the fun! Big trucks air & jet boats, lots of moose river crossings. Then the ice is spectacular the views are unforgettable even on a cloudy day.

This is a great trip to see something uniquely Alaskan. We have been on many Alaska excursions, including Kenai Fjords and Denali. This experience compares favorably and is different then seeing the glaciers in Kenai Fjords. The up close icebergs are awesome. The tour operator...More

I am sure that if you call them 907-745-1577 they can schedule you. Their boat is large and can handle several people. The suggestion to contact them on their web site is also good.
