Portage Glacier Cruise and Wildlife Explorer Tour

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable day with Jeremy taking this tour out of Anchorage. Strongly encourage others. The van was very nice, ride comfortable. The Portage glacier had just calved an iceberg as big as a house! The Alaska Wildlife Reserve was very entertaining. Seeing salmon spawning, and hearing the history of the Turnagain Bay was educational. Nice lunch spot during a day of glacier watching.

Worth it! Great experience and tour package. Chris is an excellent tour guide and made sure we were all taken care of. The glacier boat ride was amazing and the whole crew plus Kathleen doing the narration made it even more wonderful. A must to do adventure in Alaska!

I loved learning all the information Matthew had to share with us. I felt that now I could take friends and family on this trek and have some knowledge to share about the geography and history. We loved Matthew and his strong wife Laverna!
