The best Water Taxi for exploring the Prince William Sound is Prince William Sound Taxi. The Maxcat with it’s twin hulls, twin Cummins diesel engines and jet drives there is no safer more comfortable way to access the Prince William Sound’s Glacier.
It’s heavy gauge Aluminum Hull, and jet drives safely traverse the heavy ice of Black Stone Bay’s Blackstone Glacier, Derickson Bay’s Nellie Juan Glacier, and Nassau Fjord’s Chenega Glacier. Great viewing of the calving glaciers, beach combing, berry picking, and kayak drop off are all safe and easy aboard the Maxcat. The Whittier Express transporting up to 14 passengers at one time, plus guests kayaks and gear, is the perfect vessel for large groups visiting the Prince William Sound.
Prince William Sound is renowned for its abundant glaciers, fjords, and world class kayaking.
Take a glacier tour south from the Eshamy Bay Lodge or Whittier, Alaska, to one of Prince William Sound’s Amazing Glaciers, including, Blackstone Glacier, Chenega Glacier or Bainbridge Glacier to watch these ice giants calve into the ocean. We can also head north from Eshamy Bay Lodge to Nellie Juan Glacier or Blackstone Glacier to scoop up some glacier ice for a cocktail later back on the wildlife viewing deck at the lodge.
We can do tours for up to 20 people at a time so you get a personalized tour. Unlike the cruise ship style canned glacier tours, with their large capacities, we use small vessels that are less invasive and that are more environmentally friendly. We can customize your tour, stopping and looking at sights of interest for as long as you like!
