Un-Cruise Adventures - Active Cruises
Trip Overview Detailed Itinerary Rates & Policies
See Alaska up-close on an Un-Cruise Adventure! This unique 76-passenger cruise allows you unparalleled personal experiences with the real Alaska. Explore by ship, skiff, kayak, and on foot. Go snorkeling, ride a wakeboard, try a paddle-board, go beachcombing, and fish right from the ship. Rrelax in a hot tub in front of an awe-inspiring glacier, and access remote coves that only the lucky few will ever see.

Day 1: Embark on your adventure in Juneau
Welcome aboard! Transfer from the Juneau airport to your small ship, the Wilderness Explorer. (Please arrange own arrival no later than 2:30pm today) After meeting your crew and getting acquainted with your ship's features, finish the evening with a delicious meal as we anchor in Windham Bay.

Days 2-4: Glacier Bay National Park:
Today enter Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. Here we will pick up the National Park Ranger who will be with us to explore coves and corners of the bay that most visitors miss. One of America's crown jewel national parks will be yours to explore and marvel at for the next three days. Here in the bay there are sea lions, mountain goats, bears, moose, eagles, and spectacular scenic backdrops. Linger near South Marble Island and spot the many species of birds including puffins. After searching for more wildlife, stop at the Park Service's Headquarters at Bartlett Cove for a hike through the rainforest or possibly a native cultural presentation. Tidewater glaciers sweep like rivers of ice down massive mountain valleys, terminating before you in the waters of Glacier Bay. Enjoy two consecutive evenings in virtual isolation inside Glacier Bay at anchor in a hidden cove as larger vessels have exited the bay. Conditions permitting, you will also have a rare opportunity to hike or kayak or tour via shore boat.

Day 5: Icy Strait
We set course for arguably the richest whale waters in Southeast Alaska. Join the Captain on the bridge or the Expedition Leaders/Naturalists out on deck in search of marine mammals, primarily in the Icy Strait/Pt. Adolphus area. Ride the skiffs for a closer inspection of the remote coastline with eyes set on the shoreline for possible bear sightings.

Day 6: Chichagof Island
Meander along the “waterfall coast” of Chichagof Island. Marvel at the grand scenery we sail through the hidden treasures of the region. In the evening we could be anchored in Red Bluff Bay or we may discover a new remote shelter providing another grand opportunity to lower the kayaks and skiffs. Enjoy another delectable dinner onboard and relax in the hot tub before calling it a day.

Day 7: Peril Strait
Running 50 miles from Chatham Strait to Salisbury Sound, this haven for small ships is scenically highlighted by a very narrow connecting passageway called Sergius Narrows and an opening at Hoonah Sound. This wildlife-rich waterway is a great place to explore the shoreline for bear, the waters for otters and whales, and to watch for eagles. The passage narrows to only 300 feet in one spot (24 feet deep.) After an adventurous, but “non-perilous” day, toast your voyage with a festive Farewell Dinner and a “photo journal” of your trip presented by your Expedition Leaders.

Day 8: Sitka — Disembark
Gather for breakfast this morning as you cruise into Russian-influenced Sitka for disembarkation (approx. 9:00H). Transfer provided to the airport or hotel. (Please arrange own departure no earlier than 11:30am today)
