Mendenhall Glacier Float Excursion

During the month of June, 23 crew members from the Oosterdam went on a fun and exhilarating crew tour called the Mendenhall Glacier Float Trip. After meeting outside on the pier at noon, the crew were driven to the raft loading site where they received special water proof gear and life jackets before boarding the rafts. There were three rafts, one raft with 12 people, one raft with six people and one raft with five people. The journey started right near the Mendenhall Glacier where the crew got a good view of the mighty glacier. After a relaxing time of just taking in the surrounding beauty and taking photos, the crew got a chance to float over rapids for an exciting, fun filled adventure. At the end of the tour, the crew received hot apple cider, cheese and crackers before being driven back to the ship. Everyone enjoyed the tour.

Joe Reina is Oosterdam’s human resources manager.

    I love Mendenhall Glacier with the fabulous waterfall nearby! One of my favorite sites in Alaska! I just posted pics of it on my fb wall a few days ago – from our tour/cruise in 2007.
