Day 4 Endicott Arms & Dawes Glacier
5:30 AM Arrival /10:00 AM Departure
Alaska’s Endicott Arm Fjord marks the southern edge of the 653,179-acre Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness area. As you sail through its 30-mile- long stretch, you can’t help but be amazed by the untouched beauty of the surrounding granite mountains, verdant valleys and numerous waterfalls. Drifting icebergs, deep blue waters and a spectacular tidewater glacier only add to this natural spectacle’s appeal. Along the shore you might also glimpse brown bears, bald eagles, sea ducks, deer, moose and wolves. Your journey through scenic Endicott Arm Fjord ends with a front-row view of the striking Dawes Glacier. Standing over 600 feet tall and a half-mile wide, this very active icecap is known for its spectacular calving displays which noisily produce huge, chunky icebergs that float in area waters.
Day 5 Juneau, Alaska
1:30 PM Arrival / 10:00 PM Departure
Juneau, the capital of Alaska, was founded during a gold rush in 1880. Today, the former gold-mining town counts among its riches some of Alaska’s most spectacular scenery. Nestled at the foot of Mt. Juneau in the Alaska Panhandle, the city faces the water from the mainland side of Gastineau Channel. Several magnificent fjords are located along the channel coast, and the majestic Mendenhall Glacier is nearby. Take a Whale-Watching cruise from Juneau to see the summer feeding grounds for humpback whales.
Day 6 Skagway, Alaska
7:00 AM Arrival / 6:00 PM Departure
During the 1898 Gold Rush to the Yukon, thousands of gold seekers disembarked ships at the new boomtown of Skagway to begin the 600- mile trek to the goldfields. Many Skagway businesses erected elaborate 2-story false fronts on their buildings, hoping the impression of being more stable and prosperous would entice more customers. You can see many of these restored buildings in Skagway’s Historic District. While in Skagway there are many fun activities like hiking, zip lining and rafting. You can also ride an authentic steam train through the White Pass to Fraser Meadows and back to Skagway, passing mountains, gorges, trestles and tunnels.
Day 7 Alaska Inside Passage
6:30 PM Arrival / 10:30 PM Departure
This evening you will cruise through the scenic Inside Passage, a complex labyrinth of fjords and bays where whales and sea lions travel to during the summer months.
