Alaska as you have never imagined....

This is Alaska as you never imagined. Wild. Remote. Accessible only to those who care enough to find it.

Discover star-filled skies and wonder-filled days on a cruise beyond your expectations. Get up-close and personal with Alaska’s breathtaking scenery, wildlife, natural history and culture. Thrill to the awesome sights and sounds of calving glaciers as you explore Frederick Sound, Endicott Arm, Dawes Glacier, Tracy Arm and North and South Sawyer Glaciers on a vessel designed and equipped to get you close.

You’ll also explore the region’s Tlingit, Tsimshin, Russian and Norwegian cultures through dance, storytelling, a traditional feast and other unique hands-on adventures. You’ll never forget the sights of whales, porpoises, eagles, bears, sea otters and other wildlife in one of the world’s most magnificent habitats. Whether you choose to travel northbound from Vancouver to Sitka, or the longer southbound voyage from Sitka to Vancouver, you’ll visit Southeast Alaska’s most remarkable natural and cultural wonders along the inner realms of the Inside Passage.

Be fully present in the innermost reaches of Southeast Alaska’s hidden wilderness. Be completely connected to the people and cultures in remote indigenous villages. Be wholly aware of the rare access you will enjoy – and the value of protecting this delicate environment for those who come after us.
