Ok, agreed. I was thinking SE where the OP will be. Not as many Glaciers down there.

I believe PWS has better tide water glaciers, with no restrictions.

True. And keep in mind that before June 1 no permit is required in Glacier Bay, and you can stay as long as you want. We spend 10 days. It opens again in the fall, but I'm not sure when.

We enjoy shore time, but GB is in bear country. Even at the lodge where we encountered a moma brown and her 3 cubs. Very protective. We've been run out moose there too on the Park hiking trails.

Anchoring in front of Reid Glacier is fun and a good test of your vessel's heating system. Then there are the cruise ships, which in foggy weather always seem to appear for us.

These things said, a few days in GB is enough for us now, rather than burning up fuel running from one arm to another just to kill time. There are so many great places in SE Alaska, our GB desires are largely sated.

We've always liked Glacier Bay. We find that it's almost always workable to call Bartlett Cove when we're somewhere near and the weather forecast is decent. I'd say 3/4 of the time we get a 3-5 day permit.

Quite fond of the anchorage at Reid Glacier, where you can go ashore and walk right up to the face.







Johns Hopkins and Margerie glaciers.










For sheer glacier magnificence, and a truly beautiful fjord, the Tracy Arm along Stephens Passage south of Juneau is hard to beat.





Another of our favorite spots is Hoonah Sound, a detour off Peril Strait. Great shrimp and crab, lovely anchorage at Half Tide Neck, and a gorgeous falls near Nelson Island.
