The Phillips Cruises and Tours in the city of Anchorage is a cruise and tour company that offers the 26-Glacier tour to Prince William Sound. The sound is located off the Gulf of Alaska on the southern coast and the cruise takes off from the port of Whittier, located 60 miles to the south-east. The four and a half hour tour on the three-deck catamaran would take you through approximately 135 mile into the sound covering all the glaciers on the route. The company also arranges for round-trip between Anchorage and Whittier, in case you don't want to travel in your own car.
