The Great Land

7- to 14-night Alaska small ship adventures explore the Inside Passage and Glacier Bay National Park

With over 20 years of exploring Alaska, nobody knows it better. Our captains and crew navigate its waterways and inlets as easily as walking the halls of their own ship—and are always on the lookout. Spot a bear foraging for salmon on the shore and the captain swings back around so you can get a better look. There’s nowhere better to be than right here.

Everything was awesome! Best crew, best views, best adventure. I’m gonna miss this vacation!

Alaska Awakening

In April and May, Alaska awakens. Share the wild with locals including deer, bears, moose, seals, sea otter pups, and returning gray whales.

Our favorite time of year.

Seasonal Variations

From early April into May, Southeast Alaska awakens. Bears, baby animals, migrating grey whales and birds, budding forests, snow-covered peaks, gushing waterfalls, and Aurora Borealis sightings can be part of your experience. Plus, it's crowd-free.

Long days of Alaska summers mean extra playtime. Temps are warmer, so there's better access to higher elevation hikes. And humpbacks are back en masse. Come summer's end and into early fall, wildlife gets busy—mating, migrating, and feeding up for winter.

The Icy Miracles of LeConte Glacier

In the shadow of these glacial works of art, we see shapes and objects as if we were lying in a meadow of tall grass, staring up to the sky and watching the clouds roll in and out of our field of view.
