Our lodge is located 15 miles from the borders of Glacier Bay National Park. The mouth of Glacier Bay proper which is where Park Service Headquarters are located and which is connected to the small town of Gustavus is a two hour boat ride from the lodge. We will sometimes pick our guests up or drop them off in Gustavus, the little town that is connected to park headquarters by road.
Gustavus is a nice jumping off point to see Glacier Bay. There is a daily catamaran service that runs from park headquarters in Bartlett Cove, up bay to see the Glaciers and is well worth the experience.
Gustavus gets one Alaska Airline jet per day in the summer, around 7 small plane flights to and from Juneau via Alaska Seaplanes and the Alaska State Ferry a few days each week.
