This trip is our best glacier showcase trip and is especially appropriate for novice paddlers. Harriman is approximately 12 mile long narrow tidewater glacier studded fiord located in the remote northwest corner of the Sound far from the chaotic sea of the Gulf of Alaska. From a centrally located beach we will develop paddling skills and explore the greater part of the fiord during day paddles. This camp is situated across from an actively calving glacier and adjacent to a roiling fresh water creek. After extensive exploration of the back bay we will cap off our trip with a stay at a great ice amphitheater for an often spectacular view of 3 active glaciers. This one spot rivaled by few others for sheer intensity of ice field immensity. The trip ends with a short paddle out into a more mature forest ecosystem and an expansive view of the wide open Sound. With lots of smaller marine mammals (otters, sea lions, seals), this can be a very complete view of the Prince William Sound experience and hands down our most popular trip. Appropriate for beginners, we spend the first half of the trip developing skills on numerous day trips from a comfortable base camp beach. Towards the end of the outing we will travel to more distant parts of the Fiord and finally out to visit the more mature rainforest.
