This glacier should not be missed. It was our second time to see it, but on our first visit several years ago we felt rushed, so we booked an excursion that gave us more than two hours to walk the trails in the area and see the video in the visitors center. Highly recommended, and you should visit soon before it recedes much more. There was a noticeable difference between our first visit and this one. Read Less

Enjoyed visiting here. The visitor building was way busy and crowded so didn't spend a lot of time there. Did a couple trails and enjoyed scenery and able to get great pictures of glacier.

Guys whale watching were great, although we hunted for hours we only saw a few whales. But altogether it was a good day, easy pick up and drop off with bus service dropping us at the Mendenhall glacier, nice walk. Great day out.

We had a fabulous driver that drove us around town and told of the history before driving out to the glacier park. The park only gives 1 hour for the visits, and it's about .75 miles to walk down to the glacier, so you can't stroll. The path is kept nice and the views are beautiful even from the parking lot! Seeing the "Eagle's Club" was an unexpected pleasure! Read Less

The glacier and story behind it were amazing. Our tour guide was absolutely the best ever. She was funny, entertaining and informative. Whitney should be given a bonus for a great tour.

Did the Mendenhall Glacier & Whale Quest Excursion. Went to the Mendenhall Glacier visitors center after our whale watching tour. You had about an hour to take a hike or hang out at the visitors center. Since it was cold and rainy, we opted out on the hike and looked around. The visitor center was REALLY busy and you could only see the glacier from a distance. Read Less

Great to be able to walk so close to a glacier. We hiked out to Nugget Falls - about 20 mins each way. The views were spectacular. Sadly only an hour here and it was really busy. The Visitor Centre looked good but it was too busy to access.... Read More

This was a good excursion despite it raining on the day but expected to get closer to the Glacier then viewing from a considerable distance. The experience was good but maybe oversold.

This was part 2 of our whale watching excursion. Not near enough time to visit the ranger station because it closed a few minutes after we arrived...along with the restrooms.
