The largest tidewater glacier in North America, Hubbard Glacier measures 76 miles long and plunges 1,200 feet into the depths of the bay. Its immense beauty and phenomenal blue hues are enchanting, even from afar.

It takes about 400 years for ice to traverse the length of the glacier, meaning that the ice at the foot of the glacier is about 400 years old. The glacier routinely calves off icebergs the size of a ten-story building.
The area around Hubbard Glacier is also renowned for its wildlife, including whales, harbor seals and otters, brown bears, moose and black-tailed deer, and a wide variety of seabirds.
