Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate 
This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness, though should you choose to participate in every activity, you will be required to climb into and out of Zodiacs and kayaks from the yacht. Please be prepared for wet landings (in which you will disembark the boat in ankle-deep water while wearing waterproof boots) and a number of short walks over potentially wet, muddy, uneven terrain. Sea kayaking is an option that is often a highlight for our guests. We expect that most of our travelers will have little or no kayaking experi­ence, and basic instruction is provided. Paddling is generally easy to learn, but it  does take an adven­turous spirit.
Important Information About This Trip
As many nature travelers know, Alaska's Inside Passage holds legendary status as a must-see destination.  Aboard our chartered yacht carrying just 20 guests and two Expedition Leaders, this is a truly unique opportunity to discover the real Alaska.  The vessel's small size and special permits allow access to remote waters and wildlife sanctuaries that are off-limits to larger ships.  During this trip there are numerous opportunity where we will break into smaller groups to allow for up close wildlife encounters.  In addition to excursions on skiffs, we will have the opportunity to kayak the marine wilderness alongside Dall's porpoise, sea otters and puffins.  Another important and exciting element of this cruise is the chance to see black and brown bears feed on pink salmon at the Anan Creek Bear Observatory.  This time of year in the Inside Passage also offers phenomenal whale watching opportunities.
