Helpful Hints and Suggestions


  • Check in for all tours begins One (1) hour prior to departure. We begin boarding the tours 30 minutes before departure and leave promptly as scheduled.
  • We recommend that all guests bring binoculars, cameras, camera batteries and plenty memory card space.
  • We recommend that customers dress in warm layers of clothes, as the temperatures at the glaciers will generally be in the mid 40’s. A light hat, light gloves and a wind or waterproof coat is never a bad idea.
  • We are able to accommodate travelers with physical disabilities/limitations. Please mention any needs to us at the time of booking so we can accommodate you.
  • Special dietary requests should be made at the time of booking. We can accommodate some but not all dietary needs. By checking with us in advance you will be able to better prepare for your day.
  • Though we serve meals and have a small snack board, guests are welcome to bring a few snacks if they feel that they will need them.
  • Free transfers from RV Parks in Valdez upon request.
  • Outlets are available on-board for recharging camera batteries.
  • All Stan Stephens Glacier & Wildlife Cruises vessels are smoke free.
  • We will do our best to accommodate small strollers for children but depending on the vessel and the day space at times to set up a stroller may be limited.
