While in Petersburg, we booked a shore excursion through Cruise West for a jet boat tour to LeConte with Breakaway Adventures. We boarded the 18-passenger small covered boat and rode up into LeConte Bay. It was amazing -- large icebergs, growlers, and bergie bits covered the bay, and the boat dodged and wove through the icy waters on its way to the base of the LeConte Glacier, one of the most active in Alaska. We even saw the glacier calve, but I didn't get a photo! Hundreds of harbor seals sunned themselves on the ice, adding to the marvelous adventure.
