The atmosphere is electric. Home Shore drifts in utter silence. Occasional sharp cracking sounds echo between the fjord walls. Minutes pass. Suddenly. .



KABOOM!! White debris fills the air as a low swell radiates out, bearing ice formed during the Roman Empire. You are witnessing the explosive calving of a tidewater glacier, and there is no other event on earth quite like it.



Home Shore visits tidewater glaciers in Stephens Passage's Holkham Bay, site of spectacular Tracy Arm. Holkham Bay is the highlight of our "Mainland Glacier" route, between Sitka and Petersburg.

On other routes in northern Southeast Alaska, receded tidewater glacier faces and hanging mountain glaciers are visible at a distance. They form magnificent backdrops for our activities in Glacier Bay National Park.

Glacier ice takes shapes that are endlessly fascinating. Each iceberg is a Rorschach test - what does that one look like?
