Admire the mountains and forests of the Chugach National Forest en route to the coast, where you’ll board the ship in the historic port of Seward. Sandwiched between towering Mount Marathon and glistening Resurrection Bay, the small town of Seward is surrounded by breathtaking scenery and action-packed adventure.

Day 5 JULY 20 – HUBBARD GLACIER
Scenic Cruising from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Experience the daunting power of the largest tidewater glacier in North America. While most glaciers tend to thin and retreat, Hubbard Glacier continues to thicken and actively advance toward the Gulf of Alaska, earning the nickname “Galloping Glacier.” Sailing into Disenchantment Bay near the glacier’s 400-foot-tall face, you’ll get panoramic views of its gigantic expanse. Hubbard is a monstrous 76 miles long and 1,200 feet deep.
Day 6 JULY 21 – JUNEAU
From 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM
You can’t get to Juneau easily without a sprint by air or by sea. But once you arrive, you’ll find majestic views and rich culture on every corner. With its snowcapped mountains, misty rainforests, massive glaciers, and bounty of wildlife, Alaska’s remote state capital is the perfect place to dive into nature. Framed by Mount Juneau and Mount Roberts, the city’s picturesque downtown area offers centuries-old bars, boutique shops, and historical landmarks. For a taste of the local culture, visit the historic district and the Alaska State Museum. And for outdoor thrills, you can take your pick of activities ranging from whale watching in Auke Bay Harbor to tundra trekking over Mendenhall Glacier and even try your hand at gold panning in Last Chance Basin.

Day 8 JULY 23 – ICY STRAIT POINT
From 6:30 AM - 3:00 PM
Icy Strait Point is one tiny port that’s big on the Alaskan wilderness and native culture. Opened a decade ago by the Huna Tlingit Native Alaskans, it’s easily one of the best spots in the region for fishing and whale watching. Dive into Native Alaskan culture at a tribal dance show or pay a visit to Hoonah, Alaska’s largest Tlingit village. If you want to venture over to the wild side, go on a guided nature hike through nearby rainforests or hop into an ATV and explore the backroads of Chichagof Island. At the end of the day, you can take in forest views while soaring high above the trees on the longest zip line in the world. No matter what kind of Alaska adventure you’re craving, you’ll find it in Icy Strait Point.
Day 9 JULY 24 – KETCHIKAN
From 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Ketchikan sits at the southern end of Alaska’s Inside Passage— a gateway to the wild landscapes and seascapes of Misty Fjords National Monument. The canned salmon capital of the world, it’s a hub for fishing and outdoor sports. It’s also home to three tribes of Northwest Coast Indians, making it a great place to get a taste of the local culture. You’ll see it in the colorful, hand-carved totems that line the city’s streets and parks, and in the unique stilted homes that cling to Deer Mountain’s slopes. If you want to get up close and personal with nature, venture into the Tongass National Forest, the largest in the United States. Or head to Ketchikan Creek Waterfall for amazing views of downtown Ketchikan and a glimpse at the yearly salmon runs.
Day 10 JULY 25 – INSIDE PASSAGE
Your ship offers the perfect platform for viewing British Columbia’s Inside Passage. This archipelago spans 25,000 miles from Seattle to Prince Rupert near the Alaskan border. Here, you’ll find calm waters sheltered between the British Columbia mainland and Vancouver Island. Along the way, catch a glimpse of breathtakingly rugged scenery, plus staggering wildlife like salmon sharks, white spirit bears, and millions of seabirds.
Day 11 JULY 26 – VANCOUVER
Arrives at 7:00 AM
Disembark in Vancouver this morning and begin your journey home.
Alive with the hum of high-energy adventure, Vancouver is a sophisticated cityscape on the edge of British Columbia’s wild interior. This multicultural city offers a bit of everything: big city buzz, sky-high mountains, and Pacific beaches. If you’re a history buff, you can view First Nations artifacts at the Museum of Anthropology. Take little ones to meet over 50,000 aquatic creatures at the Vancouver Aquarium, or get a bird’s eye view of the old-growth forest at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Horseshoe Bay salmon fishing, Granville Island paddle boarding, and Grouse Mountain’s aerial tram are discoveries you can make on your outdoor adventure in Vancouver, from the bay to the backwoods.
