Highlights

  • See the spray of whales only yards away and venture into secluded inlets as you get up close to nature, whether from the decks of the Chichagof Dream or aboard its skiffs and kayaks
  • Learn about Alaska’s culture and living history during a Native dance performance at a Tlingit Clan House and visit a salmon hatchery, the Alaska Raptor Center, and Sitka National Historical Park
  • Cruise around the pristine waters of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve to see the sanctuary’s deep fjords, tidewater glaciers, and snow-capped mountain ranges
This is a shared departure operated by Orbridge.
