Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska - Transportation

Maps, Directions, Airports, Rental Cars, Shuttles,...

Transportation information for Glacier Bay NP is provided below. Travel information includes driving directions, maps, airport information and more.

Airports

Alaska Airlines provides daily jet service from Seattle via Juneau to Gustavus during the summer visitor season. The Gustavus airport is 10 miles by road from park headquarters at Bartlett Cove. Several air taxi companies provide daily small-plane flights year-round from Juneau to Gustavus as well. Air taxis also fly a network of routes that link Juneau and Gustavus to Haines, Skagway, and other southeast Alaska towns.

For those wishing to visit Glacier Bay National Preserve at Dry Bay, air transportation can be arranged from Yakutat, which has daily jet service from Seattle and Anchorage.

Ground Transportation

For those arriving at Bartlett Cove or Gustavus and desiring to travel into the park, Glacier Bay is best seen by boat. The distance to the tidewater glaciers is 50-60 miles. The Glacier Bay Lodge park concession runs a daily tour boat beginning in late May through mid-September. The journey takes about eight hours round trip. A National Park Service ranger-naturalist is on board to point out the bay's natural features and wildlife and to answer questions.

In addition to traveling by tour boat or kayak, other options include seeing Glacier Bay by locally chartered vessel or viewing the park from a flightseeing aircraft. Pleasure boats are welcome.
