DESTINATION INFORMATION

Seward- Seward is a port city in southern Alaska.  Surrounded by peaks, the fjords are a whale and porpoise habitat. The city’s Alaska SeaLife Center has seals and puffins, and fishing boats fill Seward Harbor.

Hubbard Glacier – Hubbard is one of the largest glaciers to be seen on an Alaska cruise. It sits over 300 feet above the water and is 6 miles wide.

Icy Strait Point- Icy Strait Point is the port for adventure. Fly down the world’s largest ZipRider, whale-watch in the nutrient-rich waters of Port Frederick and Point Adolphus, search for the coastal brown bears that inhabit the area, and soar high above in a helicopter.

Juneau- For years Juneau’s livelihood, like that of many cities in Alaska, was tied to mining. The city itself is built on tailings from the A-J mine whose shafts perforate the hillside above town. Because it is Alaska’s capital, Juneau prospers through government work and tourism. This is a great place to sample salmon baked over an alderwood fire, pan for gold, and hike the massive Juneau Icefield. If you feel the need for speed, hop on a sled and let a dog team pull you across the surface of a glacier.

Skagway –  Skagway is a compact city in southeast Alaska, set along the popular cruise route the Inside Passage. It’s home to gold-rush-era buildings, now preserved as part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad runs vintage locomotives past the famously steep Chilkoot trail and offers sweeping mountain views during its climb toward Canada.

Ketchikan- In the heart of the Tongass National Forest, immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture and view the world’s largest collection of totem poles; kayak the colorful waterfront and stroll the boardwalk that once led to Ketchikan’s red light district.

Inside Passage –  Shaped by the staggering force of massive glaciers millions of years ago, Alaska’s Inside Passage stretches 500 miles along the Pacific Ocean and boasts wildlife-filled fjords, tidewater glaciers, and lush island scenery.

Vancouver –  As British Columbia’s largest city, Vancouver is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and cosmopolitan adventurers alike.
