Holland America Line cruise shipAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
A Holland America Line cruise ship travels near Marble Mountain in the main bay of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Boats of all sizes need to be aware of changing restrictions and closures of different park areas due to visiting whales, pupping and nursing harbor seal sites, nesting birds, and other wildlife needs.
Glacier Bay National Park is located in southeast Alaska. The park is also an important marine wilderness area known for its spectacular tidewater glaciers, icefields, and tall coastal mountains. The park, a popular destination for cruise ships, is also known for its sea kayaking and wildlife viewing opportunities.
Glacier Bay National Park is home to humpback whales, which feed in the park's protected waters during the summer, both black and grizzly bears, moose, wolves, sea otters, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, and numerous species of sea birds.
The dynamically changing park, known for its large, contiguous, intact ecosystems, is a United Nations biosphere reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
