Cruise Itinerary -
“Some night the stars will gleam”—wrote poet Robert Service after years on the Alaskan frontier. Leave the armchair adventurers behind as you sail out of Juneau writing your own wilderness tales
on this exploration.

Dawes Glacier and the ice-rich waters of Endicott Arm
Kayak, paddle board, skiff and hike in glacial landscapes, old growth, and rainforest
Spot wildlife in Behm Canal and Tongass National Forest
Kayak and hike along remote coast of Stephens Passage

Day 1 - Juneau, Alaska – Embarkation
Welcome aboard! Meet your crew and get acquainted as you set sail for the Endicott Arm.
Day 2 - Endicott Arm / Fords Terror
Snow covered mountains, glowing blues, and the white thunder of calving ice take your breath away at the face of Dawes Glacier. As you glide through Endicott Arm, you’ll likely spy harbor seals and
their pups lounging on “bergy bits” in the water. Tides permitting, explore the narrow passageway of Fords Terror, marvel at its towering walls, the many waterfalls that spill down them, and the high
Coastal Mountains that frame the skyline.
Day 3 - Stephens Passage
Make the most of today! As your captain navigates through Southeast’s remote fjords, watch for whales—humpback and orca are frequent residents of these waters. Perhaps you’ll hike through an
other-worldly, landscape of hanging waterfalls and every shade of green, or kayak and paddle board into the wild inner reaches of a salt chuck—a tidal salt-water lake—keeping a lookout for bears,
heron, moose, mink, and harbor seals.
Day 4 - Thomas Bay / Wrangell Narrows
Step into the back country of Alaska's wilderness, in an area known for glaciers and rich in gold and quartz. Explore glacial landscapes marked by moraines, muskegs, and mud. Adventure and natural
beauty are sure to please whether you choose kayaking, paddle boarding, skiff riding, or hiking today. An abundance of bright red and green navigation lights guide you along “Christmas Tree Lane” as
you cruise the winding Wrangell Narrows this evening.
Day 5 - Wrangell
Home to native culture, wildlife, and wonder—Wrangell is one of the oldest towns in Alaska and the only one ever governed by four nations. Before venturing into town, local islanders join you on
board for an in-depth presentation on Tlingit and Haida cultures. View recently carved totem poles at Kiksetti Totem Park and step inside the famed and historically significant Chief Shakes Tribal
Day 6 - Behm Canal
Wildlife abounds in Behm Canal and the surrounding Tongass National Forest—orca, porpoise, seals, black bears, mink, eagles, and otters. Paddle along the canal or venture out on an intertidal shore
walk or low-elevation hike on the Cleveland Peninsula.
Day 7 - Misty Fjords National Monument
Affectionately called “The Yosemite of the North,” Misty Fjords National Monument represents nearly every ecosystem found in Southeast Alaska. Glacial valleys filled with sea water, and sheer 3,000
foot cliffs are a haven for sea birds, brown and black bears, mountain goats, Sitka black-tailed deer, and other wildlife. Glide through Walker Cove or Rudyerd Bay by kayak or explore by skiff
soaking in the splendor of this largely forgotten corner of the world. This evening, join the Captain in a farewell toast and reminisce about your Alaskan journey over a sumptuous dinner.
Day 8 - Ketchikan, Alaska – Disembarkation
Enjoy a farewell breakfast before disembarking the ship this morning. Transfer directly to the Ketchikan airport or begin your extended UnCruise hotel stay or land tour.
