Exploring Alaska's Coastal Wilderness

An Intimate Voyage Through the Wildlife-Rich Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska
Where can you wake to the cry of a bald eagle, watch tons of ice crash from the face of a glacier, walk in old-growth rain forest and observe whales lunge-feeding, perhaps in a single day? It's all here in Southeast Alaska, a maze of icy fjords and verdant islands teeming with wildlife. Our Alaska small-ship cruise is an epic journey through this vast marine wilderness far from big cruise ship crowds—yet our voyages aboard the M/V Sea Lion and M/V Sea Bird showcase iconic sights, including the placid waters of the famed Inside Passage and a full day exploring Glacier Bay National Park. Join our onboard naturalist experts to walk on trails through temperate rain forest to cascading waterfalls, watch whales and seabirds, and identify wildflowers. Zodiac and kayaking forays in protected waters offer exhilarating wildlife encounters. Learn, too, about Alaska’s rich Native American heritage. 

Trip Highlights

  • Weave through secluded channels in Alaska's protected Inside Passage, a wilderness realm of ice-choked fjords, emerald mountains and abundant wildlife
  • From the deck of our small ship, scout for humpback whales, Dall porpoise, sea lions and mountain goats as we explore the geological time capsule that is Glacier Bay
  • Paddle placid waters among remote islands on guided kayaking excursions, as we look for bears on shore and bald eagles in the tops of soaring Sitka spruce and cedar trees
