    What to Expect
    This is one of the most popular transfer options to Anchorage, with live tour commentary from professional guides and photo stops. It's a 3-hour, one-way excursion on a shuttle with a maximum of 25 people per trip. You'll see Beluga Point, the scenic overlook of Turnagain Arm, and Portage Glacier, with view of Portage Lake and the surrounding glaciers. Both stops will be around 5-10 minutes.

    Also included on all sightseeing tour transfers is a visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to view Alaska's most famous animals up close in a natural setting. During this 1-1.25 hour visit you'll get great pictures of real live bears, moose, muskox, caribou, bison, and more. Your guide will give you a tour of the park and the wildlife found there, and you will then have between 30-45 minutes to explore on your own. The admission fee to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is included in the tour price.

    Departure from the cruise ship terminal in Whittier is 8:45am, with arrival to Anchorage Airport first around 12pm then the shuttle will continue drop off at local hotels.
