TOUR DETAILS

Vancouver, British Columbia

Sophisticated. Culturally diverse, this beautiful port city brims with attractions. From Vancouver's cosmopolitan downtown to the historically renovated Gastown district and exotic Chinatown, Vancouver displays varied urban scenes. Nestled near the city center is Stanley Park, resplendent with its deep forest, totem poles, and scenic promenades.

Non-US/Canadian individuals, please Click here to determine if you will need a visa to board this cruise which visits Canada.

At Sea - Cruising

Cruising

Juneau, Alaska

In Alaska's capital, you can pan for gold at Gold Creek and taste salmon baked on an alderwood fire, mush sleddogs, flightsee the Juneau Ice Field, and walk right up to the Mendenhall Glacier at the park. This charming small city also hosts an excellent zipline course. And for the less adventurous, the Red Dog Saloon is near the dock.

Icy Strait Point, Alaska

Immerse yourself in secluded beaches, old-growth forests and Alaskan adventure - the best of Southeast Alaska is yours, including some of the best whale-watching and bear viewing opportunities anywhere.

Sitka, Alaska

Step back to the days of Russian Alaska as you watch lively performances of the New Archangel Dancers and view holy paintings of the Czarists' days.

Skagway, Alaska

A frontier town perfectly preserved as the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park. Gateway to the Trail of '98, which you may explore by helicopter or vintage railcar.

Hubbard Glacier

Marching to the beat of a different drum, Hubbard Glacier is advancing while the rest of Alaska's ice rivers are receding rapidly. In 1986, Hubbard galloped forward, closing off Russell Fjord to create an entirely new lake. The phenomenon quickly passed and was followed by a short retreat, but the glacier is once again on the move and Russell Fjord is headed for another spell as an inland body of water.

Seward (Anchorage), Alaska

Ice free the year round, Seward was a natural choice as the ocean terminal and supply center during the construction of the Alaska Railroad (1903-1920). Today, it is the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park and home of the Annual Silver Salmon Derby, the biggest fishing event in Alaska.

Trip Itinerary

  • 9:45 AM : Board Railroad in Anchorage
  • 11:00 AM : Girdwood
  • 12:05 PM : Arrive in Whittier
  • 12:45 PM - 6:15 PM : 26 Glacier Cruise (5.5 Hours)

  • Full-service bar and snacks available for purchase
  • Professional Narration provided by the Captain
  • Exclusive No Seasickness Guarantee

*Operational dates, taxes, and fees are subject to change without notice.

The 26 Glacier Cruise departs from Whittier and travels through the pristine passageways and fjords found in Alaska's Prince William Sound. Upon leaving Whittier, the vessel heads east out Passage Canal and north up Port Wells on the way to College Fjord. Along the way, enjoy a delicious hot lunch served at your table. College Fjord offers a panoramic view of the glaciers named during the Harriman Expedition after the Ivy League Colleges on the East Coast. On the way to Harvard Glacier, the Captain will plot a path through the ice-filled waters up to the front of the glacier to get an up close view while watching for massive chunks of ice calve into the sea.

From College Fjord we continue to a very scenic area called Esther Passage where only small ships can navigate this hidden waterway. High mountains protect this narrow channel from rough seas and winds. Many different animals call this area home; bald eagles are commonly seen fishing in the area along with occasional black bear sightings. It is not uncommon to see orca whales, humpback whales, sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters and a variety of birds in this narrow passage.

Leaving Esther Passage, we head toward Egg Rocks or Perry Island in search of migratory Steller sea lions on the way to Blackstone Bay for more glacier viewing and Yosemite-scale waterways. On the return trip to Whittier, the vessel will stop one more time at a kittiwake bird rookery that is located just across the bay from Whittier. Over 10,000 birds inhabit these rocky cliffs each summer laying eggs. They fish constantly in front of the rookery and then train the young hatchlings all the survival tips they will need before returning to fly south for the winter. The rookery is our last stop before returning to Whittier.
