MSCS Alaska Railroad & Glacier Cruise Excursion

Join Mat-Su Central School on an amazing trip to Prince William Sound, Whittier! Ride the rails through breathtaking scenery & the longest multi-use tunnel in the U.S. Then, cruise through the pristine passageways and fjords in Prince William Sound. Cruise through Ester Passage into College Fjord for a panoramic view of all the glaciers named after the Eastern Colleges during the Harriman Expedition. Next, we will cruise to Surprise Glacier & Barry Arm located in the Harriman Fjord. The captain plots a path through the ice filled waters up the the front of the glacier to watch for massive chunks of ice calving into the sea. The cruise includes a complimentary hot lunch, narration by U.S. Forest Service Ranger & a no sea sickness guarantee.
