We have seen more wildlife on the Kenai Fjords tours out of Seward than at Glacier Bay, Hubbard, or Tracy Arm.

So I would recommend a Kenai Fjords cruise for the wildlife with the glaciers as a fringe benefit, or Glacier Bay for the glaciers with the wildlife as a fringe benefit.


Regardless of whether or not your cruise ship visits Glacier Bay, you can take a flightseeing tour over Glacier Bay from one of the nearby ports and get to see much more of Glacier Bay than what can be seen from a cruise ship.

The drawback is that it would be very expensive to do with such a large family.
