1Embark in Juneau
After departing Juneau, we'll head straight to Swanson Harbor to anchor overnight. Try out the kayaks around the Harbor!
The Captain is taking us to one of his favorite halibut holes! After we've caught our limit of halibut, we'll visit the Indian village of Hoonah. Make your own adventure in Hoonah - chat with a carver as he works on a totem pole or canoe, or try out the largest zipline in North America!
Those halibut we caught? We're sending them to Juneau. They'll be processed and shipped to your front door. Meanwhile, we'll be heading out to Tenakee Springs in search of Humpback and Orca whales! Tenakee Springs is a bush town, population 50, give or take. We'll take a walking tour of the unique cabins, general store, and local bakery. This is not a place you'll see on other ships.
4Baranof Hot Springs
Hot fresh cinnamon rolls from the local bakery for breakfast? Yes, please! Then we'll head over to check our Dungeness crab pots. You can help pull the crab pots! We often catch 20+ large male Dungeness crab. Then we'll head towards Baranof Hot Springs. Watch for whales and porpoises on the way. It's a 1 mile hike to the hot springs, next to the rushing white water river. What other cruise ship lets you do this?
Across Frederick Sound, we'll anchor in Portage Bay. The bay is perfect for kayaking. In late July or early August, we can also fish for salmon in the streams!
Today we're going to get as close to Leconte glacier as possible. You'll know we're getting close as we pass by floating chunks of ice. When we get in position, we'll turn the engines off. We'll all be standing outside, holding our breath, while we listen to the glacier crack and pop with each calve! Tonight we'll overnight in Petersburg harbor.
7Disembark in Petersburg
Enjoy breakfast, and take some time to wander in the Norwegian fishing town of Petersburg. You'll depart the Northern Dream at noon.
