Your Itinerary

    1Hotel Stay in Petersburg, AK

    2Embark in Petersburg, AK
    Today’s activities are as varied as the weather. But whatever you do, you’ll board the ship in the afternoon and settle in with a glass of champagne as the yacht begins its cruise to Frederick Sound – home of whales!

    3Kake/Keku Islands
    Learn the stories of the Tlingit on Kupreanof Island, thru dance, legends and totems. Tribal members will tell you the history of Kake, which goes back thousands of years. Along the shore, look for black bears and bald eagles. Explore on a hike of the tidal zone, or skiff or kayak along the islets of the Keku Islands.

    4Tebenkof Bay Wilderness Area
    On the shore of Kuiu Island is the Tebenkof Bay Wilderness Area – 67,000 acres of islands, islets and forest! With rubber boots at the ready, you’ll head out on guided hikes through tide pools, woods, and muskeg (that’s a bog!). Or take out the kayaks or skiffs to see the harbor seals, sea stars and jelly fish. Feeling adventurous today? This is a great area to try paddle boarding! Just in case paddle boarding doesn’t work as planned, the crew will have a dry towel and hot toddy ready when you come back aboard.

    5South Baranof Wilderness Area
    South Baranof is 319,568 acres of protected glacier-covered fjords, valleys, sheer granite mountains and temperate rain forests. Fortunately, your in the hands of a captain that knows these waters, and will show off little inlets that are perfect for taking out the skiffs or kayaks. And the region is great for spotting bears, seals, otters and sea lions! If you have a break in the action, head up to the bridge and look over the charts with the captain and mates. It’s a fun way to learn about the region!

    6Chatham Strait/Frederick Sound
    Today, the ship will be on the lookout for whales. Humpbacks migrate through the region in search of yummy krill and prankton. Have your binoculars and cameras at the ready.

    7Admiralty Island National Monument
    In Tlingit, the island is named Kootznoowoo – ‘Fortress of the Bear’! It is the highest concentration of brown bears in the world – more bears than the contiguous 48 states combined! The skiff will take you for a wet landing and you’ll hike to a bear sanctuary. The local guide will provide an orientation before leading you through the bear viewing area.

At low tide, you can walk among the icebergs that remain in the glacial outwash field. Tonight, we’ll finish with a Farewell Dinner and cruise slideshow to mark our amazing week!

Yes, the weather will be colder, but you’ll be able to experience Alaska as it wakes from winter slumber! Bears, just up from their hibernation, will be rummaging along the coastline in search of fish and other food. Flowers and trees will have begun showing new growth. Although there’s still a nip in the air, the ice has begun to thaw.

Onboard Activities

This ship is equipped for your Alaska Adventure! Onboard, you’ll have access to kayaks, paddle boards, inflatable skiffs, and fitness equipment. There will be onboard yoga or other wellness activities. And you’re always welcome to warm up after your adventures in the onboard hot tub!
