Tour Itinerary

Day
1

Juneau Arrival

Upon arrival you will be transferred from the airport to board the ship (please arrange an 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 may be changed due to weather and logistics.

Day
2

Icy Strait / Cross Sound

Search for humpback whales, porpoise, sea lions and other wildlife in the rich waters of Icy Strait and Point Adolphus, Alaska's most famous humpback whale feeding area. From kelp-lined channels to hemlock and spruce forests, every inch of this far northern corner is worth exploring. If the tides are right, head out in the skiff with a guide for a closer exploration of the rugged shoreline.

Day
3

Glacier Bay National Park

Explore Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. This national park covers 3.3 million acres! Most visitors see the same sliver of the park as everyone else, but you have 2 days to explore areas of the park that 99% of visitors never reach. Today, explore the sea stacks and rocky shores of Taylor Bay, or hike the outwash field of glaciers winding down the Fairweather Mountain Range. If you motor over to Dundas Bay with one of the guides, keep your eye out for bears, humpbacks and if you're lucky, a wolf sighting. Kayak the bay, bushwack into the forest, and discover the true wilderness of Glacier Bay.

Day
4

Glacier Bay National Park

Today, a National Park ranger will come aboard to join your adventure in Glacier Bay. South Marble Island is abuzz with rare sea birds, black oystercatchers, orange-beaked tufted puffins and a colony of raucous sea lions. Sail into silent Tidal Inlet - the stomping grounds for bears, wolves, mountain goats and eagles - and approach Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers at the western-most arm of the bay. Step out on deck with the ranger and take it all in.

Day
5

Chatham Strait

Watch for whales and other creatures before tucking into Port Frederick or another inlet in the Tongass National Forest. Hike, paddle, or skiff your way through this remote area with bears on the shoreline, seals bobbing on the surface, and lush boughs of moss in the trees.  It's all yours to explore. Back on the boat, reward yourself with a soak in the hot tub.

Day
6

Captain's Choice

Weather changes fast in the Southeast so whether it's the Lynn Canal, Chatham Strait or a hidden cove, your captain will decide on the day's best spot for adventure. Enjoy paddleboarding, kayaking or a bushwack into the forest with your knowledgeable guides. Wherever you head, adventure abounds.

Day
7

Haines

Originally a trading outlet for the Chilkat Tlingit, this small Alaska town is a center for adventure! Hiking, biking, rafting, birding and history come together in one location. There are trails throughout the area for every fitness level, or just relax and enjoy the vista of snowcapped peaks. Tonight, enjoy a festive Farewell Dinner with your expedition team and reflect on your shared week of adventure.

Day
8

Juneau Departure

After breakfast, disembark at about 9:00am. A transfer is provided to the airport or the Un-Cruise hospitality area. (Please arrange a departure flight no earlier than 11:30am!)
