Cruises from Anchorage (Whittier) depart from May to September.
About 60 miles southeast of Anchorage, the tiny community of Whittier, AK, serves as a gateway to Prince William Sound. Established as a World War II port, the town now draws hundreds of thousands of tourists each year, despite only having a resident population of around 200, most of whom reside in a single building. Stop by the Prince William Sound Museum to learn about Whittier’s history as a rail terminal and military port. Most other attractions here revolve around the deepwater sound, set against the majestic Chugach Mountains and home to a variety of wildlife and breathtaking glaciers. A catamaran cruise presents a scenic way to search for bald eagles, orcas, otters, seals and more.
