Tour Itinerary

Activities begin during Day 1, therefore a pre-night in Juneau is strongly recommended due to possible flight delays.

Day
1

Juneau

In the morning you will be picked up from your lodging and transferred to the hospitality area to meet your crew and fellow travelers. Activities today are varied but may include attractions such as the Mendenhall Glacier and the Alaska State Museum. Meals are included today beginning with lunch.

Day
2

Glacier Bay National Park

A Glacier Bay National Park Service Ranger narrates the day's program and an Alaska Native Huna Tlingit interpretive naturalist joins us to reveal traditional cultural ties to this ancient treasure. The eight tidewater glaciers, including Margerie Glacier known for dramatic calving, provides pristine habitat for a wide-array of wildlife, including black bears, mountain goats, Steller sea lions, and humpback whales.

Day
3

Saginaw Bay

Enjoy kayak and skiff exploration in northern Kuiu Island's Saginaw Bay. Beachcomb or hike along the beautiful secluded coastline of the area, where marine fossils are sometimes found.

Day
4

Petersburg

Founded by Norwegian fishermen in the late 1800s, Petersburg is nicknamed Alaska's "Little Norway." Experience this Scandinavian culture with a folk dance show by local youth at the iconic Sons of Norway Hall. Later, enjoy a narrated bus tour and take time to explore the vibrant community at your own leisure.

Day
5

Tracy Arm

Journey through Tracy or Endicott Arm in the Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness. Renowned for its pristine waterfalls, towering icebergs, abundant harbor seals, and granite cliffs that rise from sea level to 4,000 feet, this wilderness is often referred to by locals as one of the most scenic areas in the state. Skiff excursions provide the opportunity to view the majesty of the area in even greater detail.

Day
6

Kake and Frederick Sound

View the world's tallest totem pole, a carving demonstration, and experience the intriguing culture of the Tlingit in the Native village of Kake. After boarding scout for humpback whales and other marine mammals in the world-renowned whale waters of Frederick Sound. Humpbacks are famous for behavior that lends itself to incredible viewing and photography, such as tail lobbing, lunge feeding, pectoral slapping, breaching, and picturesque dives that showcase their massive flukes.

Day
7

True Alaska Exploration

A day of Southeast Alaska discovery with countless options dictated by the day's unique circumstances. Opportunities may include a coastline kayak paddle, up-close whale encounters, or a hike through an alluring old-growth forest. We may do a beach landing on an unspoiled shoreline to explore a tidal flat or track along with a foraging bear from the safety of a skiff. Regardless of the activity, you'll experience the magic of the archipelago's many remote coves, bays, and inlets. End the day's adventure with a relaxing evening at Orca Point Lodge, our own exclusive day-lodge. Enjoy the beautiful grounds, beach, and marine life touch-tank. Dine on Alaskan salmon, Alaskan king crab, or prime rib from the warmth of the lodge, or nestled next to a beachside bonfire.
