Floating With Icebergs in LeConte Bay

Visitors to Alaska will find plenty of opportunities to observe icebergs and glaciers. But why watch them from the deck of a large ship when you can experience an up close adventure? That’s what Alan and I did on a cruise excursion in LeConte Bay with InnerSea Discoveries Cruises (now doing business as Un-Cruise).

As LeConte Glacier melts and calves, icebergs float into the bay. There really are no words to describe the scene as our skiff motored in and out of a maze of icebergs. We hope you enjoy today’s photo essay: Floating With Icebergs in LeConte Bay.
