West Arm and Muir Inlet Kayaking
The nearest tidewater glaciers to Bartlett Cove are in the Muir Arm, about 50 miles away, and in the West Arm, about 65 miles away. Kayakers generally allow 5-8 days to paddle each way. By combining the drop-off service provided by the daily boat with the calm conditions of the inlets up bay, less experienced kayakers can enjoy the wonders of Glacier Bay without enduring open water or major crossings. You can arrange one-way or round trip transport into either arm of the bay. The daily tour boat departs Bartlett Cove at 7:30am and will drop off and pick up kayakers and campers between 10:00am and 2:00pm. One-way kayaker drop-offs allow you to enjoy an 8-10 day paddle back to Bartlett Cove from either arm of the bay. If you have less time and experience, you may be dropped off and then picked up again some days later. Campers departing on the daily tour boat must attend the 5:00pm kayak rental and instruction session on the evening prior to their departure. You must load your empty kayak onto the vessel by early evening in preparation for the next morning's departure.
