Bartlett Cove Services
July 2021 Update:
To remain in compliance with State and Federal environmental regulations the park must make immediate repairs to the NPS Bartlett Cove fuel system.
The Bartlett Cove fuel dock is managed and operated by the Glacier Bay Lodge in Bartlett Cove. For fuel services, contact the Glacier Bay Lodge upon your arrival at the fuel dock on VHF channel 16, or at 697-4000, from May to September. An attendant will meet you within 15 minutes. Fuel is not available in the off season.
Please note: There is no shore access from the fuel dock, and the dock may not be used for loading or off-loading freight or passengers. This dock is only to be used for fueling and waste pumpout.
A waste pumpout is available at the fuel dock. The discharge of "blackwater" (water contaminated with human waste) is prohibited in Bartlett Cove waters.
Glacier Bay Sea Kayaks provides kayak rentals and guided day trips. They are located in Bartlett Cove near the public dock and can be contacted at (907) 697-2257
A small town of 400 located approximately 10 miles from Bartlett Cove, Gustavus is the "Gateway to Glacier Bay." Gustavus offers a variety of visitor services and activities, including a grocery store, antique gas station and gift shop, building supply store, post office, and multiple art galleries. Please note that groceries are not available in Bartlett Cove, but taxi service is available during the summer months between Bartlett Cove and Gustavus.
