Witness the unforgettable natural splendor of the seemingly timeless corner of the world in and around Dawes Glacier. During your picturesque and peaceful voyage, breathe in the fresh air and snap photos of the stunning scenery in your midst: rushing waterfalls, floating icebergs, sculpted valleys and soaring cliffs perched thousands of feet above glacial blue waters. And take a moment to listen to the silence of your surroundings. You just may hear the sudden crackle or pop of a wayward iceberg taking on water and breaking apart.
In addition to its geological wonders, Endicott Arm fjord and Dawes Glacier is home to numerous wildlife including bald eagles, brown bears, goats and whales. A nature lovers' paradise to be sure, the majesty of the area provides ample opportunity for even more photography.
