Tender Boat From Cruise Ship Near Hubbard Glacier

The Hubbard Glacier in southeastern Alaska is a spectacular site -- and it can be seen from the comfort of your cruise ship. Our cruise ship sailed to within 1/3 of mile of the glacier and made a 360 degree rotation to make sure everyone on the ship got a great view. There was no need to take a bush plane, a dog sled, etc.

The above picture is from approximately 1/3 mile away from the Hubbard Glacier on a cruise ship. The glacier is several hundred feet high and several miles long, so this photo only captures a portion of it.
