Port Description

College Fjord, Alaska

Glaciers-gawkers meet your match! Sixteen majestic ice mountains line this 20-mile-long fjord in the Prince William Sound, each named for a renowned East Coast college as a reward for funding the 1899 Harriman Expedition, whose scientists put this impressive waterway on the map. Icebergs aren.t the only thing bobbing in these frigid waters--whales, porpoises, seals, sea lions, and the occasional orca also make their presence known to sightseers and spruce forests at edge of the ice lend a helpful sense of scale.
