Day 1: Sitka | Embark | Fin Island Lodge

Welcome to beautiful Sitka — the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. We encourage you to arrive early and explore the community’s rich culture, history, and biodiversity. Shortly after embarking, you’ll enjoy a feast of Alaska crab*, wild salmon cooked over an alder wood-fired grill, and prime rib at the company’s privately-owned Fin Island Lodge.

*Subject to local processor availability

Day 2: Chatham Strait | West Admiralty Island

Spend the day exploring remote, Inside Passage wilderness. Hike a rainforest trail featuring towering spruce and hemlock trees and lush undergrowth. Your knowledgeable guide will provide commentary on the indigenous plants and wildlife of the area. Explore Chatham Strait alongside Admiralty Island, a place Tlingit Alaska Natives call Kootznoowoo, which translates to “Fortress of the Bear.” This remarkable island is home to the highest density of brown bears in North America and boasts a large population of nesting bald eagles.

Day 3: Glacier Bay National Park

This remarkable national park fjord extends 65 miles, contains tidewater glaciers, and provides pristine habitat for a wide array of wildlife, including both brown and black bears, wolves, mountain goats, Steller sea lions, and humpback whales. The highlight for many is the Margerie or John Hopkins Glaciers, which are known for their dramatic calving displays.

Day 4: Wilderness Exploration

Your captain and expert expedition team will select the day’s remote wilderness adventure based on factors like weather and wildlife sightings in the area. Whether you’re lacing up your boots for a wilderness hike or beach trek, or grabbing a paddle to navigate remote shorelines, one thing’s for sure: you’re in for an unforgettable Alaska adventure that is tailor-made for your group.

Day 5: Tracy or Endicott Arm

Journey through Tracy or Endicott Arm in the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, a place the famous naturalist, John Muir, referred to as, “A wild, unfinished Yosemite.” Renowned for its glaciers, 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.

Day 6: Kake | Frederick Sound

View the world’s tallest totem pole, an artist demonstration, and experience the inspiring culture of the Tlingit in the Alaska Native village of Kake. Later, explore the Alaska wilderness in picturesque Frederick Sound — an area humpback whales and other wildlife frequent. Humpbacks are famous for behavior that lends itself to incredible viewing and photography, such as tail lobbing, lunge feeding, pectoral slapping, breaching, and graceful dives that showcase their massive flukes. Other opportunities for in-depth exploration may include the protected waters or shores of Security Bay, Skanax Bay, Pybus Bay, and The Brothers islands.

Day 7: Wilderness Exploration

The final full day of your expedition includes an opportunity for a remote hike in the heart of the Alaska wilderness and more unscripted adventure. One of the major hallmarks of an Alaskan Dream Cruises experience is our flexibility. “Wilderness Exploration” days carry an exciting and unique spirit of adventure and discovery aboard a nimble vessel that is ideal for delving deep into places few Alaska travelers get to experience.

Day 8: Wrangell | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark in the beautiful Southeast Alaska community of Wrangell. Transportation to your lodging or the airport is complimentary.
