Amazing Glacier Tour!!

We lucked out with beautiful weather for our adventure!! We went on a boat to start our tour with captain, Jim, and guide, Megan. Megan filled us in on lots of interesting facts as we travelled about an hour to get to the beginning of our glacier trip. On the way we stopped to see beautiful waterfalls and lots of eagles. We arrived at a beautiful field and walked a short distance to get on a bus to go to the camp to be fitted with life preservers and water boots for our boat ride to the glacier. Our guide at this point was Joe and he was very knowledgeable on the glacier and wildlife around us. After we had to paddle a very short time, the motor was started and we had a beautiful ride to the glacier. We were very lucky to actually walk up to the glacier. Incredible views of the glacier up close!!!! We got to spend a good amount of time viewing and taking pictures of the glacier before heading back. Once back we headed to the field and had a simple lunch, picked wild strawberries and got on the boat for out ride back to Skagway. On the way back, we stopped to see the Stellar Sea Lions up close as they were lying on the rocks by the water.
