Along the way around Alaska’s Admiralty, Chichagof and Baranof Islands, encounter all the highlights of Southeast Alaska, including many lesser known ports and wilderness areas. Cruise to Sitka, Juneau, Glacier Bay National Park, Endicott Arm, and Wrangell. Explore remote gems such as Baranoff Island’s Waterfall Coast, Thomas Bay, Hobart Bay, Wrangell Narrows and Orca Point Lodge.
Enjoy opportunities to explore hidden coves and shoreline by kayak or inflatable watercraft. Scout for humpback whales in the whale-rich waters of Frederick Sound. Paddle the turquoise fjord water amidst icebergs in Endicott Arm. Enjoy a dinner of Alaskan salmon, Alaskan king crab or prime rib at the exclusive Orca Point Lodge. In Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, enjoy additional programming by a Native Huna Tlingit interprative naturalist, alongside the park ranger. On 2020 departures navigate Wrangell Narrows, one of the most technical areas to pilot in the Inside Passage and visit the intriguing State Historic Park, Petroglyph Beach, which contains the highest concentration of petroglyphs in Southeast Alaska.
In 2021 an exclusive agreement with a local Alaska Native organization allows for a day of private access to the beautiful wilderness of Hobart Bay.
