Marked by majestic waterfalls, plunging valleys and rugged mountains, Endicott Arm offers a perfect snapshot of Alaska’s wild beauty. This long, narrow fjord in the Tongass National Forest culminates at the monumental Dawes Glacier, an active tidewater glacier towering hundreds of feet high and half a mile across. It’s a spot that hardly ever sees cruise ships, making it the ultimate off-the-beaten-path adventure.
Things To Do in Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier
Endicott Arm is one of the largest breeding grounds for harbor seals on the planet. Keep your eyes peeled for these creatures splashing in icy waters near the ship. Along the shore you might also glimpse brown bears, bald eagles, sea ducks, deer, moose and wolves.
Your journey through scenic Endicott Arm Fjord ends with a front-row view of Dawes Glacier. Standing over 600 feet tall and a half-mile wide, this very active icecap is known for its spectacular calving displays which produce huge, chunky icebergs that float in area waters.
Dress in wind-resistant layers when viewing the scenery outside on deck.
