Exciting, exhilarating, memorable -- Ventures by Seabourn is a series of Zodiac, kayak and hiking activities enabling you to experience the wonders of nature up close. Each Venture is expertly planned, professionally operated, and escorted by skilled, knowledgeable guides.
Join your Ventures by Seabourn Team as we take you out on the zodiacs and explore College Fjord, an area not often visited by ships. College Fjord is a fjord located in the northern sector of Prince William Sound in the U.S. state of Alaska. The fjord contains five tidewater glaciers(glaciers that terminate in water), five large valley glaciers, and dozens of smaller glaciers, most named after renowned East Coast colleges (women's colleges for the NW side, and men's colleges for the SE side). College Fjord was discovered in 1899 during the Harriman Expedition, at which time the glaciers were named. The expedition included a Harvard and an Amherst professor, and they named many of the glaciers after elite colleges. According to Bruce Molina, author of Alaska's Glaciers, "They took great delight in ignoring Princeton." In 1964 College Fjord was the epicenter of the Good Friday earthquake, the most powerful earthquake in U.S. history. Each zodiac will have a qualified zodiac driver/Naturalist who will bring the area alive with insights and information.
