My mom and I had a fabulous glacier experience. We were greeted by friendly dock staff and transferred to a boat for a one hour ride to Glacier Point, along the way learning about the Lynn Canal, Haines, and wildlife. We had a great rustic experience getting out to the glacier including a short school bus ride, a brief hike, and a motor assisted paddle to see the glacier up close. We had time to hike a bit to see the glacier cave and alone the way got great commentary from our guides. Great way to spend the day away from touristy shops!!
