  • We kayaked here with Sunny Cove. It was absolutely gorgeous. We saw a black bear walking the beach very close to the glacier. We saw lots of calving and there were tons of small icebergs in the water....  more »
  • We floated by the terminus of the glacier with Major Marine. We did not get to see any calfing but it was still awesome. Even got to have a glacier ice marguerita.  more »

  • Holgate Glacier is another one of those many beautiful glaciers in Alaska. You'll most likely see Holgate Glacier while on a glacier cruise, but if you can take your time and enjoy the view from a kayak I bet you'll have a better experience.
  • One of the best views we had from a very near distance!
