Alaska's Glacier Country

A classic small ship cruise into the nooks and corners of South East Alaska that larger vessels can only dream about. This is remote, wilderness country that few get to visit, and fewer get to experience.

We will spend our days admiring the wonderful wildlife against a backdrop of 15,000 foot mountains, interspersed with huge glaciers and vast forests. Expect to see dozens of whales and a great deal of smaller wildlife as we cruise and explore by Zodiac, kayak and on foot.

All your activities on board are included, kayaking, yoga, Zodiac cruises, bushwhacking ashore and beachcombing.

Our vessel only carries a maximum 60 passengers and you will be very well looked after. All your meals are included, are prepared by a chef, and are, wherever possible, fresh and locally sourced. Your drinks are included too!

Travelling by small vessels enables us to get up close to nature and wildlife in some of the most scenic areas of the world. While delivering exceptional access to these areas, we realise our presence has an impact and foster responsible practices to lessen our environmental footprint—from replacing engines for more efficient models to making arrangements in each port for recycling and proper disposal of waste. Our teams on board and ashore work together to operate responsibly. A key part of operating a responsible business is ensuring we leave a positive impact in the communities we visit. This core value is part of our initial itinerary planning on through to operations management and office practices. Whether it’s a cruise donation to an organisation for a fundraising effort or partnering with locals for tours, we look for ways to share the wealth and enrich the lives of those we meet. Responsible Actions: Purchase local food and supplies; serve only sustainable seafood and partner with Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch programme; partner with local people for cultural tours / presentations; follow “Leave No Trace” practices; purchase supplies with less packaging to reduce waste; recycle wherever facilities exist; eco-friendly bath amenities on board in refillable containers; reusable water bottles in each cabin for guest use; no bottled water on board; donate to local organisations in areas where we operate; we are stewards of the lands where we travel—our teams on board and ashore work together to operate responsibly.

Tour Itinerary

DAY 1

Juneau
We start in Juneau, first settled in the gold rush days. Board the 160 feet Wilderness Adventurer small cruise ship - your home for the next week. The vessel’s small size and shallow draft allow her to explore regions of Alaska’s Inside Passage unreachable by most other vessels.

DAY 2

Icy Strait
We sail west toward Icy Strait, where we can glide around in remote bays through giant bullwhip kelp that can grow to over 100 feet long and watch sea lions play. Alternatively take a forest hike with your top-notch, naturalist guides who have plenty to share about everything Alaska—marine biology, plants, and even geology.

DAY 3

Glacier Bay National Park
Head to Glacier Bay National Park - UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve - you’re in for a real treat. A national park ranger comes aboard to share expert insight. Have your binoculars handy— South Marble Island is a birder’s slice of heaven. Puffins scoot through the water. Guillemots and gulls chatter up the airwaves. The snoozing sea lions don’t seem to mind. More thrills and chills await as you cruise to the far end of John Hopkins Inlet or Tarr Inlet where glaciers calve into the water. Backed by knife-edged peaks, bears forage along the shoreline of Tidal Inlet. Mountain goats too.
