Leconte Glacier

Discover LeConte Glacier Bay from Wrangell, Alaska

Experience LeConte Glacier Bay on a fully guided tour in one of our covered, heated jet boats with an on-board restroom.

LeConte Glacier spills into a 12-mile-long fjord filled with snow covered peaks, about 20 miles northwest of the mouth of the Stikine River. This spectacular glacier is North America’s southern-most tidewater glacier and is part of a massive glacial system that stretches 120 miles between the Stikine and Whiting rivers.

Enjoy traveling through the vast iceberg fields and spotting the harbor seals resting with pups on the ice that fills LeConte Bay. These seals take up residence in the bay to give birth to their pups and teach their young from late May to early June.

LeConte Glacier is an active, advancing glacier with frequent calving. Utilize the back deck to take advantage of incredible photo opportunities then return indoors to warm up. The tour departs from Wrangell and then ventures through Dry Straits to LeConte Bay. We spend approximately two and a half hours in LeConte Bay before returning to Wrangell.
