Small ships with fewer than 100 passengers offer prime access to the narrow channels, fjords, & passages where wildlife abounds, but choosing the right one can be tough. While almost all vessels offer kayaking opportunities, some boats also focus exclusively on actively exploring nature, like the Safari Endeavor, which offers snorkeling, whale watching, paddleboarding, hiking, & more to give you the closest look at Alaska's diverse flora & fauna. For a truly stately experience, the sister boats Admiralty Dream, Alaskan Dream, Baranof Dream, & Chicagof Dream are excellent choices.
