Day 1 Sitka | Embark

Arrive in Sitka, Southeast Alaska’s only oceanfront town. Stretch your legs by walking the Totem Trail in Sitka National Historic Park or other local nature trails before stopping in at the Raptor Rehabilitation Center for an up close look at Alaska’s birds of prey. Embark Sea Bird and gather for a welcome dinner this evening.

Day 2 Exploring Baranof | Chichagof Islands

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Immerse yourself in the wilds of Alaska as you kayak deep into one of Baranof Island’s countless, breathtaking bays. Hear bald eagles call from the tops of towering spruce and hemlock trees as you paddle through these mirror-calm waters. In the afternoon, hear the stories of this ancient rainforest on an adventurous hike with your naturalist guide. 

Day 3 Lynn Canal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
At the northern limit of Alaska’s Inside Passage, the Lynn Canal offers ample opportunity for active exploration. Spend today hiking and kayaking in the shadows of snow-capped peaks where the mighty Chilkat River meets the sea. Tonight call into the small town of Haines for an Alaskan evening as the locals do. 

Day 4 Haines

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Haines is known as the “adventure capital of Alaska” for a very good reason. Many, in fact. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can choose from one of many world class hikes. Or cycle along the edge of a glacial lake. Or you may also choose to raft down the Chilkat River, calling into the ancient Chilkat Tlingit village of Klukwan for a dance demonstration and cultural interpretation. The day is full of options. 

Day 5 Tracy Arm | Fords Terror Wilderness

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Awake this morning in the stunningly beautiful Tracy or Endicott Arm, part of the Fords Terror Wilderness. Enter this glacially-carved wilderness aboard your nimble ship, then set out to explore by expedition landing craft for a view of South Sawyer or Dawes Glaciers. If conditions permit, hop into a kayak to paddle along fjord walls that soar straight from the sea, as you spot curious harbor seals trailing your wake. Cap off your adventurous voyage with Captain’s farewell dinner. 

Day 6 Juneau | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark in downtown Juneau and transfer to the airport for flights home, or to an optional land extension.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
