One of the recommendations from locals, in particular a family we passed at Anan Wildlife Observatory, was the Le Conte Glacier. It’s a two-and-a-half-hour excursion straight east from Petersburg. We started to see floating ice or mini bergs in the open water before even starting up the 9-mile arm to the glacier. It was quite the amazing sight to see the glacier at the end!
Once we had our fill of the glacier, we made our way back down the arm, catching another whale glimpse on our way to our next anchorage in Ruth Island Cove.
