Gustavus Tourist Traps

    Don't bother with the day cruise into Glacier Bay (the something Spirit I think) - if you have enough people, take a private tour of the bay with a local boat owner. You can direct the tour yourself, get closer to the wildlife, and have a personal experience instead of gawking over the railings with a few hundred other people. I recommend the Alaskan Hunter boat, which you can book through the Bear Track Inn.

Gustavus Off The Beaten Path

    Take the Bartlett River hike - the trailhead is located about a mile up the road from the Glacier Bay Lodge/Visitor's Center. A lot of bears can be spotted by the river, and the trail through the forest from the road to the river is beautiful.
