Description

CNF-GRD has been in partnership with Portage Glacier Cruises (Holland America/Princess) since 1989, providing USFS interpreters on board the M/V Ptarmigan. Starting June 3rd until September 16th, these cruises took place five times a day and traveled on Portage Lake. The cruise takes visitors out to the face of Portage Glacier which used to be visible from Begich, Boggs Visitor Center but has since retreated around a mountain and out of sight from the center
