PLEASE NOTE: These are places that you might visit during your cruise through the Alaskan fjords.

  • Day 1: Embarkation day

    Welcome to Alaska, your home on the water awaits. Come aboard, meet your crew, and unpack your adventurous spirit. Your course is set for fjords, glaciers and wildlife.

  • Places you might visit:

    Tracy Arm / Stephens Passage


    Wake in a fjord flanked by sheer granite walls. Grab a hot cup of Joe and take it all in from the bow. Cascading waterfalls. Drifting icebergs. A lazy harbour seal or two. Layer up with gloves and a warm hat, and hop in a skiff for a better look at the glacier—the temps drop the closer you get. Your expedition guide clues you into signs of the ice ages that carved this landscape. The geology is fascinating and so is the wildlife. Keep an eye out for mountain goats, bears, and eagles. Make waves for Stephens Passage. It’s all hands on deck watching for signs of humpbacks.

    Endicott Arm / Fords Terror


    Fjord cliffs reach skyward. Floating ice. And deep u-shaped valleys. There’s no abracadabra here. Mother Nature’s magic is real. Cruise past harbor seals and their pups lounging on chunks of ice. At the end of Endicott, the blue face of Dawes Glacier is stories high. Will it calve? Listen for a crack and unmistakable white thunder. The name Fords Terror originated from a trick of the tides on an early mariner. And tides permitting, your skiff driver knows its character and guides you along. It’s a mashup of towering walls, temperamental currents, and the Coastal Mountains. So many waterfalls. Mountain goats show off fancy footwork on the cliffs.

  • Thomas Bay / Baird Glacier


    Have your rubber boots ready. You’re in for muskeg and mud in Alaska’s backcountry. Hiking along Baird’s moraine, look for shimmers of gold and quartz — this area is known for it. The glacial outwash plains look almost lunar, but you’re not alone in this moonscape. The glacial valley is a nesting hot-spot for arctic terns. Splash away the mud before a paddle along the bay’s mossy cliff walls. Back on board, it’s time for a cocktail and a soak in the hot tub.

    Wrangell


    Native culture and wildlife have gotten along just fine for centuries. Wrangell is one of the oldest towns in Alaska. It’s also the only one ever governed by four nations. The Tlingit cultures have deep roots here. And local islanders come aboard this morning with a presentation that brings their stories and legends to life. Venture into town for a view of recently carved totem poles at Kiksetti Totem Park. See how many totems you can pick out on each pole. Step inside famed Chief Shakes Tribal House.

  • Frederick Sound


    Frederick Sound is the 'Humpback Highway'! The up-welling of nutrients in the water make it an irresistible feeding ground for humpbacks and other marine wildlife, so be on the outlook and look for spouts. Maybe you will see them bubblenet-feeding!

  • Baranof Island


    At Baranof Island, there aren’t many straight lines. Its western side is dotted with hundreds of coves and uninhabited islands. This is a prime area for spotting sea otters. It’s no surprise to round a corner in your kayak and find one looking at you and you looking at him. The protected beaches are made for exploring the intertidal zones, and spotting bears. So tap some of the most untouched wilderness in the Tongass. Head to the woods for an adventuresome bushwhack. Or slide into a kayak for an easygoing shoreline paddle.

    Misty Fjords and National Monument


    Misty Fjords National Monument represents nearly every ecosystem found in Southeast Alaska. Glacial valleys filled with sea water. Sheer 3,000 foot cliffs. Sea birds, brown and black bears, mountain goats, Sitka black-tailed deer, all find safe haven here. Kayak in Walker Cove or Rudyerd Bay and you find it’s just as easy to paddle and go, as it is to sit and float and take it all in. Or skiff to the base of a waterfall for fjord-released shower.

  • Glacier Bay

    Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve and the crown jewel of all of Alaska's national parks. Even though there are no roads leading to Glacier Bay Park numerous people have visited it, but none of them will have an experience like you. A small ship expedition cruise to Alaska is the best way to visit the National Park, look at the massive glaciers and feel the cold breeze it holds. Keep your eyes out for whales, bears, mountain goats and maybe even wolfs. Enjoy the amazing view from your vessel and get even more excited when you see animals like puffins, sea otters and sea lions upclose from your kayak or zodiac.

  • Disembarkation day

    A last breakfast with new friends, then disembark for your transfer to the airport or your hotel for your start of the land tour.
