Day 1: Juneau
Explore Alaska's capital city of Juneau, including the world-famous Mendenhall Glacier. Set the stage for your Inside Passage expedition by delving into fascinating local history and Alaska Native culture at the newly-renovated Alaska State Museum.

Day 2: Glacier Bay National Park
Sail into beautiful Glacier Bay National Park to begin our first day of extended park exploration. Unique opportunities during our two-day voyage through Glacier Bay include a beach trek near the face of a glacier, a visit to the new Huna Tribal House, and rainforest trails surrounding Glacier Bay Lodge.

Day 3: Glacier Bay National Park
This remarkable national park fjord extends 65-miles, contains eight tidewater glaciers, and provides pristine habitat for a wide-array of wildlife, including both brown and black bears, wolves, mountain goats, harbor seals, and humpback whales. The park also features a sea lion haul-out and phenomenal birding at South Marble Island. As the captain navigates near this intriguing landmark, you may see both tufted and horned puffins, common murres, pelagic cormorants, black-legged kittiwakes, and pigeon guillemots. The highlight for many is the Margerie Glacier, known for its dramatic calving displays. A Glacier Bay National Park Service Ranger narrates the day's program and a Native Huna Tlingit interpretive naturalist joins us to reveal traditional cultural ties to this ancient treasure.

Day 4: Sitka
Explore beautiful Sitka, the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Regarded by many as one of the most scenic towns in the state, Sitka features a view of the majestic islands of Baranof Island to the east and the mighty Pacific Ocean to the west. Visit sites that highlight the community's rich Alaska Native and Russian history. While sailing the waters of the Sitka vicinity, search for rafts of sea otters, whales, eagles, and other wildlife.

Day 5: Eastern Baranof and Kake
Venture into one of the many intimate coves or inlets along Southeast Alaska's "Waterfall Coast" (Eastern Baranof Island). Experience traditional dancing, a totem carving display, and the world's tallest totem in the Tlingit Native village of Kake.

Day 6: Petersburg & Frederick Sound
Discover the charming Mitkof Island fishing town of Petersburg. Founded by Norwegian fishermen in the late 1800s, Petersburg is nicknamed Alaska's "Little Norway." Experience this Scandinavian culture with a folk-dance show by local youth at the iconic Sons of Norway Hall. Later, enjoy a narrated bus tour and take time to explore the vibrant community at your own leisure. Scout for humpback whales and other marine mammals in the world-renowned whale waters of Frederick Sound. Humpbacks are famous for behavior that lends itself to incredible viewing and photography, such as tail lobbing, lunge feeding, pectoral slapping, breaching, and picturesque dives that showcase their massive flukes.

Day 7: Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness
Journey through Tracy or Endicott Arm in the Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness, a place the famous naturalist, John Muir, referred to as, "A wild, unfinished Yosemite.” Renowned for its pristine waterfalls, towering icebergs, abundant harbor seals, and granite cliffs that rise from sea level to 4,000 feet, this wilderness is often referred to by locals as one of the most scenic areas in the state. Both of these dramatic glacial fjords offer stunning views of tidewater glaciers. Skiff excursions provide the opportunity to view the majesty of the area in even greater detail..
