Southeast Alaska is an exciting destination for an active, engaging expedition cruise. Experience the flexibility of our small ship as you follow a pod of humpback or orca whales or pause to watch thundering glaciers as they calve. Hike through magnificent spruce forests, kayak in remote coves, see grizzly bears up close from Zodiacs, and explore Alaska’s cultural heritage.
