Exploring Alaska's Coastal Wilderness

An Intimate Voyage Through the Wildlife-Rich Inside Passage
Where can you wake to the cry of a soaring bald eagle, watch tons of ice thunder from the face of a glacier, walk in an old-growth spruce forest, and observe lunge-feeding whales, all while cruising in complete comfort aboard a small ship far from crowds? It's all here in Southeast Alaska, a verdant wilderness of icy fjords and forested islands teeming with wildlife. Our Alaska small ship cruise will take you on an unforgettable journey through this vast coastal wilderness in a setting far from big cruise ships — yet our voyages aboard the M/V Sea Lion and M/V Sea Bird include the waters of the famous Inside Passage and Glacier Bay National Park. Join our expert on-board naturalists as we hike forest trails to cascading waterfalls, watch sea birds and identify wildflowers. Enjoy Zodiac and kayaking forays into protected waters and learn about Alaska’s rich Native American heritage. A full day is spent in Glacier Bay National Park.

Trip Highlights

  • Cruise remote sectors of Alaska's protected Inside Passage, a wild realm of sapphire fjords, emerald mountains and abundant wildlife
  • Scout for humpback whales, Dall porpoise and sea lions from the deck of our small ship as we explore Glacier Bay
  • Paddle among remote islands on kayaking excursions as we look for bears on shore and bald eagles in the treetops
