Prince William Sound Glacier & Wildlife Cruises

Experienced & Alaskan

The Stephens family and staff have been operating in Prince William Sound out of Valdez since 1971. Our captains have an average of 25 years of experience, and all our staff members are Alaskan residents anxious to share the culture, land and wildlife that make us proud to call Prince William Sound our home.

Spectacular Glaciers

With multiple departures daily, Stan Stephens Cruises offers travelers the chance to choose their ideal
tour of eastern Prince William Sound. Columbia Glacier, Southcentral Alaska’s largest tidewater glacier,
is featured on our 6 1/2 hour tour. On our 9 1/2 hour, the cruise features Meares Glacier, an advancing and very actively calving glacier.

Complete Tours Featuring Glaciers, Wildlife and History

We offer more than just a glacier cruise – we take the time to share ALL of Prince William Sound! With
Stan Stephens Cruises you can see amazing wildlife; whales, sea lions, puffins, seals, sea otters, eagles,
goats, bears and more. We will inform you with stories about the history of the area. Topics include
Alaskan Natives indigenous to the Sound, gold & copper mining, commercial fishing, the 1964 Alaskan Earthquake, and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Learn about the historical events surrounding the 1989 oil spill, and it’s aftermath.

Superior Comfort and Service during Your Cruise

On board a Stan Stephens Cruise, you will receive the best customer service available on a day cruise in
Alaska. All tours include complimentary meals, coffee, tea and lemonade. In addition, a small snack bar
is found on each vessel. You will enjoy your meal with gusto, because of the waters of eastern Prince
William Sound are known as some of the calmest in Alaska.

If your travel in Alaska includes a visit to Valdez, we hope you will consider a glacier and wildlife cruise of
beautiful Prince William Sound!
