Glacier Viewing (Stikine Icecap), Alaska Port Summary

In late 2022, Disney Cruise Line updated their Alaskan itinerary details starting with the 2023 voyages to list Glacier Viewing (Stikine Icecap), Alaska rather than Dawes Glacier which has been the advertised location for some time. Over the years the Disney Wonder, as well as other cruise ships in the region, have bounced between Endicott Arm (Dawes Glacier) and Tracy Arm Fjord (Sawyer Glacier) depending on various conditions such as ice flow or fog.

In an apparent effort to avoid confusion and maintain some level of flexibility in sailing to manage guest expectations, the listing has been changed to the more general Sticking Icecap glacier viewing. For the most part, this is simply a renaming of Dawes Glacier and it is expected the ship will still venture into either glacier viewing area as safely possible.

Below is a summary of the area as defined by Disney Cruise Line.

Take the route less traveled and discover a place known for mammoth glaciers, rugged mountains and abundant wildlife. Cruise through the scenic Stikine Icecap—located approximately 45 miles south of Juneau, Alaska amid Tongass National Forest—and behold a paradise in sight and sound amid a serene remote wilderness.

Gaze upon an unspoiled natural world of wonder as you weave your way down the near-frozen waterway. Observe nature raw and beautiful, where immense rock formations, steep valleys and rushing waterfalls open up to frigid sapphire water and glowing blue ice adrift in every direction.

Renowned for its iconic granite spires and imposing peaks, Alaska’s southernmost icefield is one of the 3 biggest icecaps in the state. Straddling the Alaska-British Columbia boundary, the Stikine Icecap boasts an abundance of glaciers and serves as a primary source for the Taku River and the Stikine River. Stand in awe at this spectacular icefield and be on the lookout for the process known as calving, where giant chunks of ice break off and spill into the sea below without warning.

Witness the unforgettable natural splendor of the seemingly timeless corner of the world in and around the Stikine Icecap. During your picturesque and peaceful voyage, breathe in the fresh air and snap photos of the stunning scenery in your midst: rushing waterfalls, floating icebergs, sculpted valleys and soaring cliffs perched thousands of feet above glacial blue waters. And take a moment to listen to the silence of your surroundings. You just may hear the sudden crackle or pop of a wayward iceberg taking on water and breaking apart.

In addition to its geological wonders, the Stikine Icecap is home to numerous wildlife including bald eagles, brown bears, goats and whales. A nature lovers' paradise to be sure, the majesty of the area provides ample opportunity for even more photography.
