Daily Itinerary

Day 1: Embark in Juneau

Day 2: Glacier Bay National Park

We’ll head for the outback of Glacier Bay – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. Dundas and Taylor Bays are lesser visited sites that you’ll just love! Bushwhack into the forest, or walk along the beach when the tide is right. Sea otters will float alongside your kayak, and eagles will be flying overhead.

Day 3: Glacier Bay National Park

A National Park ranger will come onboard today to point out amazing off-the-map places. South Marble Island is great for bird watching, and home to many loud and lazy sea lions. The narrow Tidal Inlet is a great area to watch for bears and mountain goats. You can also take a forest hike at Bartlett Cove, the park’s headquarters, before we say goodbye to the ranger.

Day 4: Chatham Strait

Chatham stretches 150 miles into the Tongass National Forest. The Captain will find the best place to anchor for the day, and your adventure begins! Hike thru moss-covered trees. Or kayak and paddle board along the shore line in search of seals.

Day 5: Kuiu Island

You’ll spot salmon along the coastline – which means black bears on the shore! Get a closer look from a kayak or skiff in the intertidal zones of Saginaw Bay. Eagles will be eyeing those salmon, as well. Keep your eyes peeled.

Skiff to whales

Day 6: Frederick Sound

These waters fill up with krill, which attracts humpback whales! If you’re out on deck before breakfast, you’ll see whales enjoying theirs.  We’ll cruise past Alaska’s oldest light station, Five Fingers Lighthouse. There’ll usually be sea lions on the rocks of the Brothers Islands, unless a bear’s been walking by.

Day 7: Endicott Arm/Dawes Glacier

Have your video cameras ready for calving ice in this wilderness area. Icebergs, glaciers, and snow-covered mountains will be the backdrop of your last day of adventure. If the tides are right, the ship can slip into Fords Terror, with steep walls covered in waterfalls. At the end of Endicott Arm, you’ll find Dawes Glacier. After our Farewell Dinner, your crew and guides will put on a ‘photo journal’ presentation of your amazing cruise together.

Day 8: Disembark in Juneau
