Famed Passages of Discovery
Wildlife, ice, Tlingit culture and deep fjords are highlights along the 900 nautical miles between Juneau and Seattle on this 13-day Un-Cruise Adventure that invites you to rethink the cruising concept with its more personal, up-close touch on small ship Alaska cruising. View glaciers, kayak through the narrows and hike into the rainforest. Choose from northbound departures in the spring , and southbound departures in the fall, both optimal times for cruising. The spring season sees nature awakening for the warm months, fewer boats and people, and the arrival of whales. In the fall season, expect vivid foliage, fewer crowds and wildlife foraging along the shoreline.

The Famed Passages of Discovery cruise prides itself on the people aboard - the finest chefs, knowledgeable, friendly and personable crew members, experienced expedition leaders and leading naturalists. One of the primary features of these Un-Cruise Adventures is the ability to cater to individual guest needs. Built on a unique reputation for luxury, these boats pamper up to 86 guests with a three-to-one guest/crew ratio, fresh, healthy meals, creature comforts like DVDs and iPod docks, experienced expedition leaders/naturalists who know Alaskan culture and topography, high-end expedition gear plus a wide variety of excursions to suite any activity level.

Six boats make this Inside Passage journey, which runs both north- and southbound. Choose from:
M/V Wilderness Adventurer - 60-guest small ship
M/V Wilderness Discoverer - 76-guest small ship
M/V Wilderness Explorer - 76-guest small ship
Safari Endeavour - 84-guest luxury small ship

Itinerary Notes

We may occasionally alter itineraries slightly for safety, or to take advantage of weather, wildlife, and unplanned discoveries. The ability to be flexible makes this style of small ship cruising unique.

Arrival & Departure

The Famed Passages of Discovery cruise begins in Juneau, Alaska, and ends in Seattle, Washington (or reverse). Please plan Juneau flights to arrive no later than 2:30pm on day 1 of the cruise. On day 13, the final day of the cruise, Seattle departure flights should be planned to depart no earlier than 12:00 noon. For reverse northbound departures that begin in Seattle, plan Seattle flights to arrive by 1:00pm on day 1 of the cruise and depart Juneau on the final day no earlier than 11:30am.

Activities

Whether you are looking for moderate activity or vigorous, extended and challenging outdoor pursuits, the crew can tailor most any expedition to suit your skill level. Adventure activities may include: whale watching, kayaking and standup paddleboarding, inflatable boat/skiff excursions, morning yoga and stretching, land treks, glacier viewing, wildlife observation, and "polar bear plunges." Snorkeling gear and wetsuits are available for rent, and limited quantities of hiking poles, binoculars, mud boots, and rain gear are available on board. To ensure availability and fit, we encourage you to bring your own gear.
