Tour Itinerary

Day
1

Juneau Arrival

Upon arrival you will be transferred from the airport to board the yacht. (Please arrange own arrival no later than 2:30pm today). Your crew greets you with champagne and smiles, and you will cruise to a secluded wilderness cove this evening. Meals and beverages are included throughout your cruise (with the exception of ‘super premium' liquor). The order of destinations on your cruise may be changed due to weather and logistics.

Day
2

Endicott Arm / Fords Terror

It's a landscape that lives up to Alaska's nickname, "The Great Land" — peaks that fill the horizon, a glittering blue river of ice, and the booming crack of “white thunder” as ice calves from the face of Dawes Glacier. Today you board the skiffs to explore this astounding fjord while watching for mountain goats and arctic terns. If tides and conditions allow, navigate through the cathedral-walls of Fords Terror.

Day
3

Port Houghton

In this forested bay, investigate hidden nooks and crannies along the rugged shore by kayak and paddleboard watching for big wildlife and plentiful shorebirds.

Day
4

Frederick Sound

Frederick Sound is a marine playground for whales, harbor seals, sea lions. You may even see humpback whales feeding and spouting in the waters of the sound. Located in southeast Alaska's Alexander Archipelago and surrounded by emerald forests and a backdrop of the looming Coast Mountains, you may have an opportunity to gear up for an adventurous bushwhack or a guided walk among tide pools.

Day
5

Baranof Island

The eighth largest island in Alaska, Baranof Island boasts towering waterfalls along its sheer granite walls. Eagles soar off thermals above and sea otters play in the water below. A guided hike through temperate rainforest uncovers the flora and fauna of an intricate ecosystem. Or go for the water on a skiff, paddle board, or kayak.

Day
6

Chichagof Island

Chichagof's waterfall-lined coast is home to harbor seals, whales, and porpoises, and deep in the forest, bears. Settle in to one of the island's “not in the guidebook” quiet coves for a chance to head ashore for an exploratory hike or slip into the water for another paddle in the heart of this wild archipelago.

Day
7

Icy Strait

The western-most point of your journey, Icy Strait is a favored summer stopping point for whales. Watch for tell-tale spray from the bow or join your captain on the bridge for an eagle-eye view. Cruise toward Cross Sound and get up close to the rugged coast by skiff, keeping a lookout for hidden treasures, including rambunctious Steller sea lions. After dinner this evening, your expedition team treats you to a special photo presentation of your unforgettable week.

Day
8

Juneau Departure

Return to Juneau this morning. A transfer to the airport or the Un-Cruise hospitality area is provided. Please arrange flight departures no earlier than 11:30am today.
