The unyielding forces of nature are on full display throughout Alaska’s Inside Passage. Mountains erode by the crushing force of massive glaciers, icebergs drift across aquamarine waters, and the life cycles of flora and fauna are compressed into the scant weeks of an arctic summer. During this expedition cruise, navigate narrow channels and waterways with skilled naturalists at your side—ready to encounter Alaska’s abundant wildlife, breathtaking peaks and fjords, and ice-blue glaciers of unfathomable proportions.
See the spray of whales only yards away and venture into secluded inlets as you get up close to nature, whether from the decks of the Chichagof Dream or aboard its skiffs and kayaks. Accompanied by expert naturalists, including an Orbridge Expedition Leader, learn surprising details about animal behavior, glacier activity, and the wealth of natural spectacles along these protected waters.
Learn about Alaska’s culture and living history during a Native dance performance at a Tlingit Clan House. Cruise around Glacier Bay National Park alongside a Native Huna Tlingit Cultural Heritage Guide and a park ranger, observing the sanctuary’s deep fjords, tidewater glaciers, and snow-capped mountain ranges.
Visit a salmon hatchery, the Alaska Raptor Center, and Sitka National Historical Park. Take a guided tour of the Norwegian fishing community of Petersburg.
