Arrival & Departure
The Sikumi Custom Alaska Cruise begins and ends in Petersburg, Alaska (PSG). Flights in and out of Petersburg are limited and the ship’s schedule is programmed to accommodate these flights. We highly recommend arriving one day prior to your trip start date in case of any flight delay, cancellation or lost luggage issues. Plan flights to arrive to Petersburg in time to make the 12:00pm Noon embarkation day 1 of the itinerary. Flights out of Petersburg depart at 12:10pm or later on day 7, following a 10:00am disembarkation. Arrival and departure times vary for alternative itineraries; inquire with your Adventure Specialist upon booking for details.
Whether you are looking for light activity options or more challenging outdoor pursuits, the ship’s crew can tailor most excursions to suit your skill level. Adventure activities may include guided hiking and beachcombing, sea kayaking, skiff excursions, wildlife viewing, bird watching, glacier viewing, whale watching, hot springs, fishing (Alaska fishing license required), shrimping and crabbing. Activities are designed to take advantage of local weather and wildlife conditions and are based on the interests and ability of the group.
Single travelers wishing to book a double-occupancy cabin may do so at 1.5x the per-person listed rate in select cabins upon availability. A limited number of single cabins may be available; inquire for details.
Families & Children
Kids 17 years and younger are welcomed aboard all departure dates but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
