Hubbard Glacier - North America's Largest Tidewater Glacier

By April 18, 2014

Follow me on:

Cruise ships sailing from Seward often stopover at Yakutat Bay on the Alaskan panhandle.
Hubbard Glacier in Alaska
As a ship enters Yakutat Bay, Hubbard Glacier can be seen from over 30 miles away. This massive Alaska glacier is a staggering 76 miles long, 6.5 miles wide, and 1200 feet deep. Its face is over 400 feet high, which is as high as a 30-40 story building. These photos of the blue ice of the Hubbard Glacier and Yakutat Bay do not begin to show just how large and spectacular this area of Alaska is. You'll have to cruise there and see for yourself!
