From the head of the glacier to the ocean is around 12.5 miles of stunning rafting fun! After you reach the ocean, you will be picked up by a water taxi and taken back across the bay to Homer! We have partnered with Homer Ocean Charters to offer the water taxi ride back across the bay. Call for pricing and more information! (907)235-7482
