At a Glance

Explore a thousand miles of fjords, glaciers, inlets and islands, from Seattle to Glacier Bay, on this epic 17-day voyage. Wake to the cry of a soaring eagle, watch tons of ice thunder from a glacier, walk amid towering spruce trees, and witness the antics of orcas and humpback whales. Visit SGang Gwaay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the remains of large cedar long houses, together with a number of carved mortuary and memorial poles at the village of SGang Gwaay Llnagaay (formerly Nan Sdins), illustrate the art and way of life of the Haida. Our special-use permits allow you to spend a full day in Glacier Bay and to hike and kayak in wild, remote places that are generally off limits.
