See Alaska on this glacier cruise adventure in Alaska’s Inside Passage! This adventure cruise sails between Juneau and Ketchikan* and offers unparalleled personal experiences on a small ship.
On this adventure-rich cruise, explore by ship, skiff, kayak, and foot. Wind through canals and explore the Tongass backcountry. Watch for whales, try a paddle-board, and go beachcombing with your companions and expedition leader. Relax in a hot tub before an awe-inspiring glacier, and access remote areas that only the lucky few will ever see.
* NOTE: Cruise may operate in the reverse direction from Ketchikan to Juneau, depending on sailing dates.
Take an early peek out your window to spy fjord cliffs and deep valleys, along with harbor seals and their pups lounging on chunks of floating ice. At the end of Endicott Arm is the blue face of Dawes Glacier. Tides permitting, your skiff driver will guide you along to see towering walls, the Coastal Mountains, and countless waterfalls. Look for mountain goats along the towering cliffs.
Humpbacks visit here each season to feed on krill, zooplankton, and herring; watch for them feasting in these abundant glacial waters. Based on 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 rocks. Paddle into the deeps of Port Houghton or Windham Bay or head ashore for a hike. Tonight, toast another big day in Alaska.
Step into the backcountry of Alaska’s wilderness with glacial landscapes marked by moraines, muskegs, and mud. Kayak and skiff in water almost clear as glass. Hike through the outwash of Baird Glacier. Later, wind into the Wrangell Narrows. Abundant bright red and green navigation lights guide the way, inspiring the nickname “Christmas Tree Lane”.
Wildlife abounds in Behm Canal and the surrounding Tongass National Forest. Be on the lookout for black bears, mink and eagles. In the water, porpoises, seals and otters go about their business. On Cleveland Peninsula, your expedition team leads a low-elevation hike near clear, rushing streams. The area offers great opportunities for enticing forested shots of Southeast Alaska. Enjoy a guided paddle in the waterways that feed into Behm Canal.
Also called “the Yosemite of the North”, Misty Fjords National Monument represents nearly every ecosystem found in Southeast Alaska. Glacial valleys filled with sea water and steep, sometimes sheer, walls are a haven for sea birds, bears, mountain goats, and Sitka black-tailed deer. Kayak in Walker Cove or Rudyerd Bay or skiff to the base of a waterfall for a fjord-released shower. This evening, join the captain in a farewell toast and a delicious dinner.
After breakfast this morning, disembark in Ketchikan at about 9:00am. A transfer to the airport or the Un-Cruise hospitality area is provided. (Please arrange a departure no earlier than 11:30am today)

The folks at Alaska Tours were great. All of the arrangements were taken care of very well. The lodge at King Salmon was first class. The staff there, and at the sea plane areas, took very good care of us. I would recommend Alaska Tours to anyone who wants to take a trip like we did.
