Your Itinerary

    1Embark in Juneau
    Welcome aboard the Wilderness Discoverer!

    2Lynn Canal & Saint James Bay
    Just what you need, morning stretches on deck with your guide. Warm those hard-at-play muscles. You know firsthand conditions in Southeast change one inlet to the next. Your captain is at the helm and picks just the right spot. Lynn Canal or Saint James Bay? Whichever, the adventures are as big as the water is deep! So many hidden pockets in the Tongass National Forest. Give your paddle board skills a glide. Watch for big-eyed harbor seals from a kayak. Bushwhack into the forest of giants. Your guides know the area’s history and keep it lively. (BLD)

    3Haines, AK
    The center of adventure. Tucked beneath snowcapped peaks, Haines has it all. Hiking, biking, rafting, and history. One thing’s for sure—the trails are irresistible. Go easy, or feel the burn—whatever your speed, the views reward in spades. Your expedition team shares the city’s captivating history. A trading outlet for Chilkat Tlingit, they called it “Dtehshuh”—the end of the trail. European explorers, the Klondike gold rush, a U.S. Army outpost—influences still apparent today. What holds your interest? Follow your curiosity on a self-led tour. (BLD)

    4Chichagof Island
    Known for an abundance of brown bears, this area offers the opportunity for hikes, kayaking, skiffing and a special treat of meeting up with a local select cut logger and learning the trade of a backwoods Alaskan making an ecologically safe living off the land. Keep your eyes out for those bears - they frequent the stream bed. (BLD)

    5Icy Strait / Point Adolphus
    Before you do anything, look out the window. From kelp-lined channels to hemlock and spruce forests, every inch of this far northwest corner is worth exploring. And if the tides are right, head out in the skiff with one of the guides for a closer exploration of the rugged shore. Seals and sea lions haul out on rocky outcroppings, resting before they disappear in the water to search for food. Whatever you do—wilderness trekking, skiffing, or paddling—your expedition team guides the way. Point Adolphus is known for Humpback whales…keep a sharp eye out! (BLD)

    6Glacier Bay National Park Outback
    Your Captain will make this decision based on weather. If possible, we will visit either the far outback areas of Glacier Bay or the famed “George Island” with a close-up opportunity for sea otters and a World War II cannon that sits in the wilderness today. However this day turns out, it is going to be very special as we visit the outer section of the Inside Passage. (BLD)

    7Glacier Bay National Park
    Your camera’s memory card needs plenty of room. South Marble Island is abuzz with activity. Rare sea birds, black oystercatchers, and orange-beaked tufted puffins can’t be missed. A colony of raucous sea lions adds to the hubbub. They add a distinct aroma to the air, too. Tucking into silent Tidal Inlet—the stomping grounds for bears, wolves, mountain goats, eagles—the backdrop is spectacular. At the end of the western-most arm of the bay sits Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers. And possible views of glacial calving. Tonight, it’s a festive Farewell Dinner. A “photo journal” of your trip by your expedition team is the cherry on top. (BLD)

    8Disembark in Juneau
    After breakfast, 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!
