Camper Dropoffs and Pickups

You can arrange to be dropped off in the wilderness.
Daily tour boat dropping off kayakers in the Glacier Bay backcountry.
 

During the summer months, kayakers/campers can arrange with Glacier Bay Lodge to be dropped off and/or picked up by the daily tour boat at two designated drop-off locations in the bay. There are two drop-offs per day, one in the West Arm and one near the entrance to the East Arm.

To minimize human impacts, the specific locations are changed regularly.

Summer 2021 Schedule:
The tour vessel does two scheduled drop-offs each day; East Arm entrance in the morning, West Arm in the afternoon. Check with the Visitor Information Station (907) 697-2627 for approximate pick up/drop-off times. The selected drop-off locations will change mid-July.

The locations and schedule (subject to change) are:

  • May 29 – July 15
    • Mt. Wright (East) & Scidmore (West)
  • July 16 – September 6
    • Sebree Island (East) daily, and Blue Mouse Cove (West) each day besides Tuesday, when the dropoff point will be Ptarmigan Creek (West).
