Ultimate Glacier Bay, Wilderness & Wildlife (Kruzof Explorer) itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Day 1 Sitka
Explore beautiful Sitka, the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Visit fascinating sites that highlight the community’s rich Alaska Native and Russian history, guided by an Alaskan Dream Cruises expedition leader. Embark for the winding narrows north of town while searching for bald eagles, sea otters, bears, whales, and other wildlife.
Day 2 West Chichagof Island
Navigate the remote west coast of Chichagof Island in the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness—a stretch of Southeast Alaska that few travelers have a chance to experience. The pristine coastline is adorned by miles of stunning cliffs, narrow passages, and towering rainforest. The vessel’s high-speed Zodiac and kayaks provide an opportunity for in-depth exploration of the region.
Day 3 Pelican
Explore the scenic boardwalk “road” of Pelican, Alaska during a port call to this small community of less than 100 year-round residents in Lisianski Strait. As you walk the charming town, you’ll have a chance to photograph the picturesque harbor and browse unique, local shops. You may also choose to experience Southeast Alaska’s famous Rose’s Bar and Grill, a watering hole that has provided the setting for many colorful, local tales. Pelican is situated on the northwest coast of Chichagof Island near some of the best fishing in Alaska. The Kruzof Explorer’s aluminum fishing tender is an ideal vessel to quickly transport interested guests to the fishing grounds. Keep your eyes peeled as you navigate near shore–brown bears are prevalent in the region.
Day 4 Glacier Bay National Park
Witness the awe-inspiring beauty of Glacier Bay National Park. Highlights include South Marble Island—a nesting area for puffins, a myriad of other birds, and Steller sea lion haul-out; Gloomy Knob, a dramatic rocky outcropping known to be excellent mountain goat habitat; and the mighty Margerie glacier, famous for spectacular displays of calving.
Day 5 Glacier Bay National Park
Enjoy continued exploration of one of Southeast Alaska’s most prized natural treasures. Our in-depth travels in this UNESCO world heritage site afford the best opportunity for amazing encounters with wildlife, such as brown bears, black bears, wolves, moose, and more. Savor a chance to trek ashore near one of the park’s famous glaciers, allowing an unmatched perspective of one of nature’s most powerful forces.
Day 6 Glacier Bay National Park (Dundas Bay)
Venture west in Glacier Bay National Park to remote Dundas Bay. In this secluded area, you’ll experience remarkable solitude as you paddle a shallow water coastline inaccessible to larger craft.
Day 7 Icy Strait & Lynn Canal
Relish unhurried navigation of Icy Strait and Lynn Canal, two pristine bodies of water known for humpback whales, orcas, and more. Our expert shipboard team and knowledgeable captain will spot for wildlife and allow ample time for photography and viewing.
Day 8 Juneau
Disembark in Alaska’s capital city of Juneau. Transfer to your hotel or the airport is complimentary.
Please Note:
Portions of this itinerary include remote coastal areas susceptible to the ocean swell. If weather conditions would compromise the comfort or safety of our guests, then alternate Inside Passage routes will be sailed.
