A small tourist boat approaches the terminus of the Holgate Glacier, located outside the town of Seward, Alaska in the Kenai Fjords National Park. The glacier flows outward from the Harding Icefield toward Holgate Arm of Aialik Bay. It is actually advancing! While it is one of the smaller glaciers in Aialik Bay, approximately 0.5 mi wide at the face, it is still a popular destination to see calving glaciers. Holgate Arm is often filled with ice, but on a good day you can get to a close and safe distance from the glacier. One-quarter mile is as close an approach as allowed.
