Your Itinerary

    1Embark in Juneau
    Welcome aboard the Safari Endeavour!

    2Tracy Arm/Stephens Passage
    This morning, you’ll wake up inside a fjord with sheer granite walls. Grab a cup of coffee and head to the bow to watch it all – waterfalls, icebergs, harbor seals. Be the first onboard the skiff (after you’ve grabbed your hat and gloves), and get a close-up look at the glacier. Listen to the expedition guide as they point out the signs of the ice age around you, and wildlife that might make an appearance.

    3Thomas Bay/Baird Glacier
    Muskeg and mud in the backcountry! Hike Baird’s moraine, with your eyes peeled for the gold and quartz this area is known for. This is a great nesting area for arctic terns, who seem to enjoy the ‘lunar’ look of the glacial plains.

    4LeConte Glacier/Ideal Cove
    The southernmost tidewater glacier in North America, Le Conte is a great place to get a closer look at icebergs! At low tide, you can walk through the mudflats to see the icebergs stuck in the mud. At high tide, ride the skiff out to the icebergs. Take the boardwalk trials of Ideal Cove or try your hand at paddle boarding while we’re in a quiet cove.

    5Kake/Frederick Sound
    The Tlingit word kake means ‘opening of daylight.’ This morning, we’ll visit a natice village for traditional storytelling and dancing. They have an 132-foot totem pole! Afterwards, head out into Saginaw Bay for kayaking. Keep your eyes out for black bears on shore, eagles in treetops, or orange-billed surf scoters. Hikers can head out with a guide for an off-the-map adventure. When our ship cruises thru Frederick Sound, the captain will keep an eye out for humpback whales.

    6Baranof Island/Peril Strait
    Baranof Island is some of the most untouched wilderness in the Tongass. Go bushwacking or kayak along the shoreline.

    7Sergius Narrows/Neva Strait
    Baranof Island is a curvy shoreline of coves that make its protected beaches popular for wildlife who also want to take it easy. We’ll end our day with a special Farewell Dinner, and the crew will provide a special closing to our week.

    8Disembark in Sitka
    Transfer to the airport or extend your stay with a hotel package.

Alaska Awakening

New for 2018, cruise ships will be headed North for Alaska earlier in Spring than ever before. 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!
