Hubbard Glacier enters Disenchantment Bay
The floating pieces of glacier ice in Disenchantment Bay crackled, hissed and popped as we made our way through to the glacier. Although I was amazed as how close we got, the Radiance of the Seas went even closer. The Radiance of the Seas seemed to be too close for safety, when their ships horn blew several times. Their captain was trying to make the glacier ice calve off a landslide of ice by using the vibration of the ship’s horn.
Disenchantment Bay, Hubbard Glacier
This day wasn’t a good one for major calving, but we did see more than a half dozen minor cascades of calving ice. The glacier ice fell from a height of about 50 feet above the ocean. The ice cracked and produced a sound like cannon fire or a good mid west USA thunderstorm. A great experience at the Hubbard Glacier Ice!
