Blue Ice Jetboating
Jetboat to the face of an active glacier into the remote backcountry of Alaska. Turnagain Arm at the 20 Mile River Bridge is where your adventure begins. Gear up for navigating the scenic Twentymile and Glacier Rivers in powerful and maneuverable six passenger jetboats. Skilled captains share their knowledge while you search for the eagles, beaver, moose, salmon and bears who share nature’s corridor.
Twentymile Valley is one of the most scenic jetboat trips in the world. Climbing upriver 15 miles into remote backcountry and our US Forest Service special use permits allows nearly exclusive access to the magical area. River conditions vary in summer with glacier melt making this tour typically available mid-July to mid-August depending on water conditions.
Glacier Lake is the ultimate destination where we float among icebergs and active walkers can go ashore on rocky moraine at the glaciers face. Dress in warm layers and bring cased cameras for photo opportunities. Our jetboats are equipped with convertible tops for rainy days with rain gear available. Jet spins add to the excitement for the return trip through boulder gardens, twists, turns and log strewn river sections.
