Cruise Alaska’s Inside Passage in Southeast Alaska in comfort and style aboard one of Un-Cruise Adventures small ships. Thanks to its small size, this Alaska cruise ship can travel into areas in Alaska’s waterways which most ships cannot reach. Enjoy stunning Alaska wilderness and seacoast surroundings from the deck or get out and experience it first hand in a kayak or inflatable watercraft. Each evening, enjoy a locally-inspired authentic Alaskan dinner, served casually with grace and a smile.
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).
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.
Humpbacks beeline it here each season to feed on krill, zooplankton, and herring. Watch for whales feasting in these abundant glacial waters. Hang out and enjoy the show. Cruise past Five Fingers Lighthouse, Alaska’s oldest light station, and The Brothers Islands, where sea lions nap on rocky nobs. Tonight, toast to a whale of a day in Alaska
Before you do anything, look out the window. From kelp-lined channels to hemlock and spruce forests, every inch of this far northwest corner is worth exploring. And today’s adventures promise to be as big as the water is deep! Seals and sea lions haul out on rocky outcroppings, resting before they disappear in the water to search for food. If the tides are right, head out in the skiff with one of the guides for a closer exploration of the rugged shore, or perhaps, make it all the way to George Island. Whatever you do—wilderness trekking, skiffing, or paddling—your expedition team guides the way.
Glacier Bay National Park
This crown jewel of America’s national parks covers 3.3 million acres (that’s a tad smaller than the state of Connecticut). Let that sink in. Most visitors see the same sliver of the park as everyone else. Not you. You’re going the furthest and exploring parts that 99% of visitors never go to. And you have two days to do it. Get started! Taylor Bay sea stacks and rocky shores make for good adventure. Or hike the outwash field of glaciers winding down the Fairweather Mountain Range. The cool breeze off the nearby snow and icefields is energizing. If you motor over to Dundas Bay, keep your eye out for bears, humpbacks, and if you’re lucky, a wolf sighting. Kayak the bay. Bushwhack into the forest. Discover Glacier Bay outback.
Glacier Bay National Park
Your camera’s memory card needs plenty of room. South Marble Island is abuzz with activity. Rare sea birds, black oystercatchers, and orange-beaked tufted puffins can’t be missed. A colony of raucous sea lions adds to the hubbub. They add a distinct aroma to the air, too. Tucking into silent Tidal Inlet—the stomping grounds for bears, wolves, mountain goats, eagles—the backdrop is spectacular. At the end of the western-most arm of the bay sits Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers. And possible views of glacial calving. Take it all in on deck.
Find a perch on the bridge with your captain, or with your guides on the bow, and watch for whales and other creatures before tucking into Port Frederick or another inlet in the Tongass National Forest. Any spot’s a good one to pull over and stretch your legs. Hike, paddle, or skiff your way through this remote corner with bears on the shoreline, seals bobbing on the surface, and welcoming boughs of moss in the trees. It’s all yours to explore. Back on the boat, there's a treat in store—the Farewell Dinner and some special memories from your crew.
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!)
