Hubbard Glacier, Alaska Cruise Video

We were fortunate enough to get exceptionally close to the face of Hubbard Glacier and take this video. The Hubbard Glacier is a tidewater glacier in Alaska and the Yukon Territory of Canada. From here (Disenchantment Bay) it extends 76 miles to its source in the Yukon!

The sounds of the calving and cracking of the glacier can be heard in the video.
