We cruised Prince William Sound to the tidewater Surprise Glacier in Barry Arm, passing waterfalls and wildlife. Prince William Sound is a sound in the Gulf of Alaska on the east side of the Kenai Peninsula. Its largest port is Valdez, the southern terminus of the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline. It is named for King George III's son Prince William Henry. The sound has more than 3800 miles of coastline.
