Alaska

Posted on Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Big bold and impossibly beautiful, Alaska stretches beyond the imagination.  Ancient glaciers glint majestically, as snow-mantled mountains soar into the cerulean sky.  The deep harbors and frontier towns welcome visitors with open arms, eager to reveal their riches.  The possibilities are endless, inviting excursions of untold discovery and delight.

Whittier, Alaska

Posted on Thursday, October 01, 2009

The City of Whittier is at the head of Passage Canal, a fjord of Western Prince William Sound. Whittier is approximately 47 air miles (62 miles by road) southeast of Anchorage. 

Whittier is a year round ice-free port and is a focal point for marine activity and freight transfer from sea train barge serving Southcentral Alaska. The Whittier townsite lies on a fan-shaped delta on the south shore of Passage Canal. The delta, approximately a mile square, is bordered by Whittier Creek on the west and by a mountain ridge on the east.

If you are visiting Whittier as part of a cruise, one of the most popular shore excursions is the Prince William Sound Glacier Cruise.
