Location of Adventure
Inside Passage, Alaska
Group Size Limit
20 Travelers
A very important feature of our Inside Passage cruise is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with small groups of travelers, for intimate wildlife encounters and the opportunity to enjoy the peace of the wilderness.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Accommodations, meals from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on final day, purified drinking water, services of NHA Expedition Leader, local guides and boat crew, airport transfers in Juneau or Ketchikan on Day 1 and final day, some gratuities, most alcoholic beverages, all permits, entrance fees and taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip (Juneau and Ketchikan), most gratuities, some alcoholic beverages, passport and visa fees, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance.
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 rigid inflatable Zodiac rafts and kayaks from the yacht, in conditions that are sometimes unstable depending on sea conditions. 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 major 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.   

Please note: The itinerary provided is meant as a guideline, and is subject to change without notice. On rare occasions, it may be necessary to deviate from our regular itinerary for reasons beyond our control. In these instances we will provide the best available alternative.
