Embark

Embark the ship in Juneau.

Day 1: Juneau

Arrive in Juneau and board your ship. First settled in the gold rush days, Juneau welcomes with both small town charm and towering glaciers. Toast to the riches of Alaska as you sail west toward Icy Strait.

Day 2: Icy Strait

Start the morning with on-deck yoga session followed by breakfast. Join an excursion by kayak, glide around in remote bays off of Icy Strait through giant bullwhip kelp that can grow to over 100 feet long. Join fellow passengers in a skiff to a rocky outcropping to watch sea lions play. Or, step into mud boots for a forest hike with your top-notch, naturalist guides who have plenty to share about everything Alaska—marine biology, plants, and even geology.

Day 3: Glacier Bay National Park

Today you are joined by a National Park ranger who will share their expert insight of the park. Be ready to observe Puffins scooting through the water, Guillemots and gulls and snoozing sea lions on South Marble Island. Cruise to the far end of John Hopkins Inlet or Tarr Inlet where glaciers calve into the water. Backed by knife-edged peaks, bears forage along the shoreline of Tidal Inlet. Mountain goats too. Back at Bartlett Cove, if time and daylight allow, take a forest hike around the park’s HQ, and say farewell to your ranger.

Day 4: Chatham Strait

Today you will explore the Chatham Strait, stretching 150 miles into the Tongass National Forest, offering adventure aplenty. Hike up through moss-covered trees and rain-fed waterfalls. Stick to the water in a kayak excursion, and don’t forget to look above and below the surface. A nosy seal could be watching your every stroke. Beachcomb rocky shores. Tiny creatures cling to rocks. Tonight, take a nightcap to the sun deck and watch the sky.

Day 5: Kuiu Island

Arrive at Kuiu Island which stretches just six miles wide. Salmon streams dot the coastline—and where there’s salmon, there are bears. Despite its slim size, Kuiu Island is home to many black bears, who, like you, love the solitude and open skies in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. From kayak or skiff, scope the intertidal zones of Saginaw Bay for a closer look.

Day 6: Frederick Sound

Today you will hopefully observe a plethora of wildlife including humpback whales feasting in these abundant glacial waters. Depending upon the wind and weather, your expedition team has the lineup of adventures all mapped out. Cruise past Five Fingers Lighthouse, Alaska’s oldest light station and The Brothers Islands, where sea lions nap on rocky nobs. Paddle into the deeps of Port Houghton or Windham Bay or head ashore for a hike.

Day 7: Endicott Arm - Dawes Glacier

Skiffing up Endicott Arm, harbor seals laze around on icebergs. If the tides are right, slip into Fords Terror, the steep walls of this narrow opening streaked with waterfalls. Back in the Arm, gasp at the deep glacier-carved valleys. It’s at the end where you meet the piece de resistance: Dawes Glacier. Tonight, celebrate with a festive Farewell Dinner and “photo journal” from your expedition team.

Day 8: Juneau

Your voyage ends in Juneau where you will disembark after breakfast.
