Major Marine Tours explains the cruise

"Prince William Sound Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise

Come aboard the Kenai Star for a memorable cruise to the most spectacular glaciers in Prince William Sound. Our 4.25 hour Blackstone Bay Glacier Cruise departs daily from Whittier and ventures into the calm, protected waters of Prince William Sound, where seasickness is highly unlikely. The best option for the glacier enthusiast, this cruise spends time in front of two active tidewater glaciers and one hanging glacier to maximize your chances of seeing spectacular glacier calving, where massive chunks of glacial ice crash into the water. Enjoy your time floating among the icebergs as the massive Blackstone and Beloit Glaciers tower 700 feet over the 77-foot vessel. Nine named alpine and cirque glaciers are visible in the nearby mountains as we cruise. You will also see breathtaking scenery, towering waterfalls, and wildlife such as eagles, harbor seals, sea otters, and bird rookeries, all from the relaxing comfort of our Coast Guard-certified ship."
