Our cruise left from Vancouver... The cruise terminal is a beauty. the best we have seen so far in our travels.
Note: Pictures are from 2011 and 2012 Alaska Cruises. 2011 began from Vancouver and the 2012 cruise began from Seattle.
Hubbard Glacier is a tidewater glacier. From its source in the Yukon, the glacier stretches 122 km (76 mi) to the sea at Yakutat Bay. Named in 1890 after Gardiner G. Hubbard (regent of the Smithsonian Institution and first president of the National Geographic Society), it is the longest tidewater glacier in Alaska, with an open calving face over ten kilometers (6 mi) wide.
We toured an old salmon canning plant. They had all the equipment used in the operation. It was quite fascinating.
