North America Alaska Cruise

Glacier Bay National Park Adventure Cruise

The 8-day Glacier Bay National Park Adventure Cruise includes a comprehensive two days within Glacier Bay National Park for maximum adventure ashore and afloat with a special day spent taking in the history of Haines and diverse birding on South Marble Island.

The incomparable Glacier Bay National Park covers over three million acres with open ocean and fjord coastlines spanning most of its perimeter. Within the park, view two impressive tidewater glaciers, Margerie and Grand Pacific, and bushwhack and hike in old-growth forest and glacial outwash fields. Birding at South Marble Island will mean no rest for the binoculars while watching for puffins, oystercatchers, cormorants and kittiwakes.

Outside the bay, explore further with a captain’s choice day of sailing and an adventure day in Haines that includes hiking, biking, rafting and history-focused options. A stellar expedition team guides the entire journey, with plenty of active daily options, including skiff rides, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding right from the small ship home base.

Cruise round-trip from Juneau aboard the 60-guest Wilderness Adventurer, 76-guest Wilderness Discoverer or the 74-guest Wilderness Explorer, venturing farther than 99 percent of visitors, having the time and flexibility that a small ship provides to sail into small coves and seek out wildlife viewing opportunities.
