What could be better?

Your cruise excursion adventure begins here...

Day 1

This private tour shows Southeast Alaska as a spectacular place of islands, glaciers, and rugged mountain peaks. These stunning features cradle diverse natural habitats that are home to fascinating animals. This private exploratory journey through coastal fiords introduces you to this wilderness in an intimate setting with a certified naturalist and experienced captain.

Search out wildlife viewing opportunities, including humpback whales, orca whales, Steller sea lions, and Dahl’s Porpoise. You may also see bald eagles and ravens soaring gracefully above the treetops, and ducks and harbor seals near the shoreline of famed Admiralty Island National Monument, also known as “fortress of the bears”.

As you watch, listen to the underwater sounds of these whales through the boat’s hydrophone as you drift peacefully alongside (when conditions allow). Bring your camera and be ready to capture great shots of these gentle giants.
