2019 - HAL Alaska Cruise - 30 - Glacier Bay - 5 - Margerie Glacier

2019 - HAL Alaska Cruise - 30 - Glacier Bay - 5 - Margerie Glacier

ms Noordam's second Glacier Bay visit was Margerie Glacier in Tarr Inlet. Margerie was calving constantly while the ship was parked near its face. The noise produced was as good as seeing the ice fall.

Margerie Glacier is an icy highlight of a visit to Glacier Bay National Park.

Margerie is about 1-mile wide, with an ice face about 250 feet high above the waterline and its base about 100 feet below sea level. The glacier is approximately 21 miles long and begins in snow-fields of the Fairweather Range.

Margerie's ice flows about 2000 feet per year, or 6 feet per day.
