Itinerary NotesWe may occasionally alter itineraries slightly for safety, or to take advantage of weather, wildlife and unplanned discoveries. Our ability to be spontaneous makes this style of Alaska small ship cruising unique. Please note that because of Glacier Bay National Park permits, some departures will cruise into Glacier Bay aboard Glacier Bay Day Tour boat the Baranof Wind. The 149-passenger high-speed catamaran operates a seven-hour glacier cruise that begins and ends in Bartlett Cove. Please contact AdventureSmith's Alaska cruise experts for more information.
