Our journey up Blackstone Bay takes us along the shores of this fascinating fjord carved by the ancient glaciers on their great retreat. It is an epic story of the powers between ice and granite. Live the history of glaciations as we cruise among the sheer cliff walls, wide glacier outwash streams, and deep grooves and striations scoured in the rock walls.
Just a short 1-hour cruise takes us to the stunning landscape of Blackstone Bay where we can marvel at huge tidewater glaciers, numerous waterfalls, and hanging glaciers in the surrounding mountains. En route, we’ll stop to photo sea otters and harbor seals that make their home in this part of the sound.
