Nice! Reminds me of the best cocktail ice there is.

I would be terrified for my hull and props' sakes. I've never encountered ice like that though.

Great pictures!

Camera was set for maximum magnification. Vessel wasn't that close.


Small "iceberg" in Tracy Arm:

I ran for probably well over a mile in ice like in Marks picture (but w bigger pices) my extremely light 28'OB where most of the hull was 3/8ths plywood. Was quite noisy and we went 2 or so knots. No damage to hull or prop. Prop was quite deep because of the boats design.

The most dangerous thing commonly done around ice is to get real close to large pices or bergs. Sometimes they roll over. Very bad things can happen then. I would never get close to pice of ice that would be an "event" if it rolled over.

Did the 'vessel' have twenty foot diameter props?

In retrospect if the glacier face calfed being in all that ice moving in the shock wave might be not such a good thing. Also wind moving the ice could pack around you making for another problem. Watching the ice move around you is amazing. I got by with it multiple times without damage. Staying off the face of the glacier at least a mile is probably wise, even at that distance you feel right on top the glacier.

Tracy Arm in August. We weren't worried about ice in the propeller. The sound of the ice against the hull was unsettling though but no damage.


We have been to Tracy Arm in May and there were no mini icebergs. You could get as close as you dared to the face.

Don't know, but the ship has two azipods and a draft of 8.5 meters. It is the panamax Norwegian Jewel with maximum speed of 25 knots and a cruise speed of 21 knots while consuming 5.4 tons of fuel an hour (a bit more than four pounds per person).

Here are three glacier photos from Southeast Alaska. The first was taken in 2012 at North Sawyer Glacier (Tracy Arm) when I took my 22' C-Dory to SE Alaska. The second was last summer at LeConte Glacier, and the last was last summer at South Sawyer Glacier (Tracy Arm).

Being on a small boat in an ice field, hearing and seeing the glacier calving, is magical.

It's a big area, a few miles. The iPad camera isn't the best.
We barely rescued our shrimp pots before the ice closed in.

That is between jackpot bay and whale bay, south western Prince William Sound.
