College Fjord, Alaska
College Fjord is a fjord located in the northern sector of Prince William Sound in the U.S. state of Alaska. The fjord contains five tidewater glaciers (glaciers that terminate in water), five large valley glaciers, and dozens of smaller glaciers. Some of these glaciers have spruce forests growing right up to the edge of the ice.
College Fjord is home to large colonies of seals. Nearer the forested edges are otter populations. Pairs of Orcas or white beluga whales may also be spotted in the Fjord.
