Getting There
While Gustavus is closer Haines is going to be your best option for traveling to  Johns Hopkins Glacier if you're not on a cruise ship, or don't need to get there on a boat.

Johns Hopkins Glacier sits inside Glacier Bay National Park, heads on east slope of Lituya Mountain and trends west to head of Johns Hopkins Inlet and 56 miles northwest of Gustavus, or 66 miles southwest of Haines.

Named in 1893 by H. F. Reid (1896, p. 423) for the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md., chartered in 1869 and opened in 1876.
