Another jetboat daytrip option is to Le Conte, one of the most active glaciers in Southeast Alaska. Because the water in front of the face is so deep—up to 800 feet—there’s nowhere for the glacier to advance. Instead, it just breaks into pieces. We may see huge chunks of ice calving off the glacier, and you’re sure to see icebergs and bergy bits on the way into the bay. This trip takes you past the mouth of the Stikine, where there are frequently seals basking, and into the long, narrow Le Conte Bay, where you can see how glacial action has carved the landscape: the closer you are to the ice, the newer the land.
Our jetboats are fast, safe, and comfortable, and let you get to parts of Alaska you’ll never see any other way.
