Strike it rich on this quintessential family learning adventure along Alaska’s historic, wild and rugged Inside Passage. From the comfort of our small ship, have an enriching frontier wilderness experience at every port — from a mountaintop view aboard a tram high above Juneau, to rare totem poles, to learning about humpback whales and glaciers, and seeing lumberjacks climbing trees at jaw-dropping speed.


Highlights

• Experience the massive Mendenhall Glacier, board a skiff to explore a Sawyer glacier and venture into exclusive Hobart Bay on a Zego runabout or sea kayak.
• Walk through a magical forest to the Chief Son-I-Hat Whale House to view totems from 1880 and view Wrangell's petroglyphs carved 8,000 years ago.
• Scout for whales, otters, bears, moose and eagles, and delve into boots-on geology through rock collection and identification, plus hands-on native craft projects.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile. Climbing in, out of small craft. Paddling kayaks. No elevator on vessel; access requires steep stairs.
