Roundtrip Juneau

400x300_AK_DiscGlacier_Day-1-Juneau-credit-Cory-Bagley.png

DAY 1

Juneau, Alaska – Embarkation
Arriving in Juneau, you will be transferred from the airport to our hospitality area. Upon boarding, your crew greets you with champagne and smiles. Set sail for a week of scenic channels and secluded wilderness.
400x300_AK_DiscGlacier_Day-2-GBNP.png

DAY 2

Glacier Bay National Park
Accompanied by a National Park Ranger, over the two days in the park you’ll travel nearly 60 miles cruising up-bay to the tidewater glaciers of Grand Pacific and Margerie, which frequently calve huge icebergs into the bay. If conditions permit, we'll lower the skiffs and weave among the icebergs that have fallen from the face of the glaciers. Enjoy an evening at anchor, and mornings paddling your kayak in the quiet of this majestic wilderness. Here in the bay are puffins and sea lions, mountain goats and bears, moose, eagles, and scenery more spectacular than any place on earth. Glacier Bay is at its best when explored by small groups with unfettered time for treks and kayaking inside the bay and wilderness areas.

DAY 3

Glacier Bay National Park
Enjoy another exclusive day exploring the glaciers and wildlife of Glacier Bay National Park.

DAY 4

Icy Strait
Today’s the ultimate day of exploration. Set your course for arguably the richest whale waters in Southeast Alaska. Keep watch for the telltale blow of the humpbacks as you scour the nutrient-rich waters in search of whales, porpoise, sea lions, and other wildlife. Join the Captain on the bridge or go on deck with your Expedition Leader. Late afternoon, we’ll drop the skiffs and kayaks for closer inspection of the remote coastline with eyes set on shore for possible bear sightings. This evening, take in the solitude while relaxing in the upper deck hot tub or enjoy a nightcap with your fellow yachtmates in the salon.

DAY 5

Chichagof Island / Baranof Island
With no binding agenda, today you’ll cruise the waterfall coast of Chichagof Island. Marvel at the grand scenery of Alaska’s wilderness as the crew expertly guides you through those “not in the guidebook” places known only to the locals. This evening, perhaps tucking away in a waterfall-laced fjord, there’ll be time for skiffing, beachcombing or treks ashore, and kayaking to look for sea otters and bears before calling it a day near Baranof Island.
400x300_AK_DiscGlacier_Day-6-Frederick-sound.png

DAY 6

Frederick Sound / Stephens Passage
Spend the day exploring in Frederick Sound and Stephens Passage—another excellent chance to view humpback whales and other marine wildlife. Pass by Five Fingers Lighthouse and watch for playful antics at a large sea lion haulout made from dozens of rocky islets. Later, cruise picturesque bays, where evergreen forests crowd the shores.
400x300_AK_DiscGlacier_Day-7-Endicott-Arm.png

DAY 7

Fords Terror / Endicott Arm
Cliff-walled fjords sliced into the mountainous mainland are on tap today as you slowly slip into an area widely acclaimed as the most beautiful in Alaska. With more designated Wilderness Areas than any state in the nation, the finest include Endicott Arm and Fords Terror—a pristine tidal inlet and fjord. Explore this majestic fjord by kayak or skiff, a unique opportunity indeed. View rugged ice-covered mountains gleaming high overhead and a glacier that actively calves into the ice-filled fjord of Endicott Arm. Toast your voyage with a festive Farewell Dinner, and before turning in, your Expedition Leaders will share a “photo journal” of your trip together.
400x300_AK_DiscGlacier_Day-8-Disembarkation.png

DAY 8

Juneau - Disembark
Gather for breakfast before returning to historic Juneau. Transfer to the Juneau airport or begin your Un-Cruise hotel stay or land tour. Safe travels to all!

Passport required (non USA citizens). Itineraries are guidelines; variations in itinerary and the order of days may occur to maximize your experience.

National Park Centennial Celebration

Joined by a Park Ranger, commemorate the 100th anniversary of our National Parks on select Alaska departures that sail in Glacier Bay during the week of August 25—the date in 1916 when the act was signed.

2016: August 19

"I really appreciated the casual atmosphere on-board. The interaction with the crew made it feel more like I was on an excursion with a team as opposed to a tourist being 'processed' by an industry. Many thanks - this has really meant a lot to me."
— Richard T., Owasso, OK

ak-port-400x300-Baranof3.jpg

Baranof Island

The second island in the ABC islands of Alaska, Baranof Island is also known as Sitka Island. It eloquently sits at the northern end of the Alexander Archipelago in the Alaska Panhandle surrounded by glacier-carved fjords, hanging valleys, old-growth temperate rainforests and sheer granite mountains. Baranof Island is the tenth largest island in the United States and is mostly covered by the Tongass National Forest. Today most of the southern end of the island is protected by the South Baranof Wilderness.

Around 1900, the town of Sitka was used for many small-scale mining sites, canneries, whaling stations and fox farms. However most of these ventures were abandoned at the beginning of World War II. Today, many of the remains of Baranof Island's past can still be seen.

ak-port-400x300-Chicagof_Island.JPG

Chichagof Island

Chichagof Island is the 5th largest island in the United States and one of the ABC islands of Alaska. It sits at the northern end of the Alexander Archipelago.

Separated from Baranof Island by the Peril Strait to the north, Chichagof Island has the largest population of bears per square mile of any place on earth and is protected by the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness area.

400x300_AK_Endicott-Arm-DeckPeopleSmallGlacier.png

Endicott Arm

Endicott Arm is one of two narrow fjords that make up the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness area. Over 30 miles long, it ends at the stunning and breathtaking Dawes Glacier. With calm waters and only the sound of glacial caving, harbor seals, bears, deer, wolves and a wide variety of birds call this area home.

Halfway up Endicott Arm sits Fords Terror, a narrow passage that is accessible by small boat. As the tides change, water is pulled or pushed through this shallow and narrow opening, making it almost impossible for boats to pass through. Time it right—and you will be able to see some of the best waterfalls in Southeast Alaska.

ak-port-400x300-FordsTerror.JPG

Fords Terror Wilderness

Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness was designated in 1980 by the United States Congress. Today, it has over 653,000 acres of breathtaking scenery.

Bounded by Canada on the east and bordered by the Chuck River Wilderness to the south, the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness is highlighted by two sheer-walled fjords, Tracy Arm and Endicott Arm, both narrow and deep and over 30 miles long. At the head of both fjords, tidewater glaciers calve regularly into the sea. Permanent ice covers about one-fifth of the Wilderness.

ak-port-400x300-FrederickSound.JPG

Frederick Sound

Frederick Sound is a body of water approximately 45 miles wide in the central part of Southeast Alaska, at the confluence of Portage Bay (West), lower Stephens Passage (North), and Chatham Strait between the communities of Juneau (North) and Petersburg (South). Frederick Sound is only accessible by boat or air.

Abundant krill (small, shrimp-like crustaceans), zooplankton and herring thrive in the glacially fed waters of Frederick Sound, making it one of the premier places in Alaska to observe feeding humpback whales. It is estimated that over 500 of the 1,000 humpbacks that migrate annually to Alaska from Hawaiian breeding grounds head particularly to Frederick Sound to feed in its super nutrient-rich waters.

Marine mammals in the sound also include orcas (killer whales), Steller sea lions, Dall’s porpoise, and harbor seals. A variety of seabirds thrive in this region as well and can be observed flying overhead or flocking after the whale’s watery leftovers, creating a great clue to where the humpbacks might be. Surrounding the sound are the majestic craggy snow-covered mountains of the Coast Range rising from the sea to grand heights of 10,000 feet.

ak-port-400x300-glacierbay5.JPG

Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve

Glacier Bay Park and Preserve is reportedly the most sought after park to visit in the United States and it is no wonder. Where else will you find a 25 mile-long river of ice still carving the land just as it has for the past several thousand years? When Captain Cook and George Vancouver sailed by in 1879, they saw a 20-mile wide glacier where today the entrance of the park lies, as well the wilderness lodge and park headquarters.

Over the past 200 years, this wall of ice has retreated an astonishing 65 miles north, splintering into a vast number of tributaries spaced throughout the entire park. Each glacier has its own name and character; our captain will decide which to visit for the day depending on ice conditions and wildlife sightings.

Visiting Glacier Bay Park is also like visiting a wildlife park. Here bears, goats, moose, whales, sea otters, and all the creatures of the water and forest flourish, completely protected from man. A National Park Ranger joins us for our entire journey to explain the park's geology, glaciology, wildlife, and its deep roots in Tlingit culture.

ak-port-400x300-IcyStrait.JPG

Icy Strait

Icy Strait is a body of water in Southeast Alaska that is located between Chichagof Island and the mainland, and extends 40 miles northwest from Chatham Strait to Glacier Bay and Cross Sound. Icy Strait’s nutrient-rich waters are abundant with marine mammals, sea birds and the scenery is spectacular.

400x300_embarkation-Juneau.png

Juneau, Alaska

Surrounded by the rich, green Tongass National Forest, and located on beautiful Gastineau Channel, Juneau is an important port and a popular tourist destination. Unique because it is the only state capital in the United States that is inaccessible by road, Juneau sits at sea level below the steep mountains that are home to the Juneau Icefield and the Mendenhall Glacier. Its temperate climate produces remarkable scenery with miles of hiking trails through woods and alpine meadows providing a glimpse of just how rugged the rainforest of Southeast Alaska is.

The Auke tribe of Tlingit Indians were the first settlers in the Juneau area. They lived there peacefully enjoying the abundance of food and natural resources until the gold rush began. First named Rockwell and then Harrisburg, Juneau was finally named after gold prospector Joseph Juneau. In 1880, he and his partner, Richard Harris, discovered gold nearby, and the city quickly developed into a gold rush town.

During the lucrative 60 years of gold mining in the area Juneau was home to three of the world's largest gold mines: The Alaska Juneau mine, the Alaska Gastineau mine, and the Treadwell mine. These three mines produced $158 million worth of gold making Juneau one of the world's major gold mining areas until the 1940s when costs outstripped the value of the gold. However, since 2005 the gold mining industry has been experiencing a resurgence.

Officially designated the capital of the Territory of Alaska in 1900, it did not function as the capital until the government offices were moved there from Sitka in 1906. In 1959 Juneau became the official state capital when Alaska was admitted to the United States. Today, its approximately 31,000 citizens live within a 3,255 square mile boundary, an amount of land that makes Juneau's city limits the largest state capital in the United States (and the only state capital that borders a foreign city.)

Along with its delightful small town ambiance, Juneau has a number of art galleries, boutiques, historical sites, and museums. In town you can visit the Alaska State Museum, the House of Wickersham, the Patsy Ann Statue, the 5-stories-tall totem pole outside the Capital Building, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, the Alaska-Juneau gold mine or the salmon hatchery.

One of the most popular attractions in the area is Mendenhall Glacier, located only 13 miles outside the city. Although it’s receding, it is an amazing work of nature. Other attractions include the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge (providing a look at Alaska’s salt marshes and the migratory waterfowl protected there); the Juneau Icefield; the Mt. Roberts Tram (rises 1,800 feet and presents sweeping views of downtown Juneau and Gastineau Channel.) There are more than 205 trails within and surrounding Juneau. They range from fairly flat hikes accessible to wheelchairs and stroller to medium hikes up and down forest trails to strenuous uphill paths for serious hikers.

400x300_AK_Stephens-Passage_4OrcasinRow.png

Stephens Passage

Running between Admiralty Island to the West and Douglas Island to the east, Stevens Passage is a 170km long channel in the Alexander Archipelago.

Stephens Passage was named in 1794 by George Vancouver, probably for Sir Philip Stephens. It was first charted the same year by Joseph Whidbey, master of the HMS Discovery during Vancouver's 1791-95 expedition.

Safari Explorer

Designed for comfort, with an elegant atmosphere, and in the spirit of adventure, the Safari Explorer is a perfect platform of discovery. Three public decks make it easy to see action in the water and provide plenty of room for relaxing and breathing fresh air. An intimate Wine Library, salon, and inviting dining room encourage mingling and camaraderie among guests.

The Safari Explorer is adventure equipped: kayaks; paddle boards; inflatable skiffs; snorkel equipment and wet suits; and hiking poles and a full-beam swim step for easy access in the water. A hydrophone provides the opportunity to listen to below-surface sounds and a bow-mounted underwater camera pipes the action to the lounge and to TVs in each cabin. The spa area includes a large on-deck hot tub (Alaska only), fitness equipment, yoga mats, and complimentary massage.

There are six cabin categories aboard the Safari Explorer: Single; Master; Commander; Captain; Admiral; and Commodore Suite. Depending on the cabin, singles, doubles or triples can be accommodated.

Common to all cabins are: Heated tile floors in bathroom; air conditioning; Tempur-Pedic® memory foam mattresses; flat-screen TV/DVD; iPod docking station; view windows (no portholes); private bath with shower.

Destinations: Alaska; Hawaiian Islands

Wilderness Adventurer

The Wilderness Adventurer’s interior complements the wild places it sails through and both public and private spaces are amenity-full. The main lounge evokes the feel of a wilderness lodge or neighborhood pub, with a long bar made from reclaimed Alaskan yellow cedar. Three accessible decks are ideal for keeping watch for wildlife and taking in the outdoors. The sun deck features roomy space for lounging and the observation deck offers over-the-top viewing from the bow.

The vessel is outfitted with adventure gear including kayaks, paddle boards, skiffs, hiking poles, wet suits and snorkel equipment, and yoga mats. The EZ Dock launch platform on the main deck makes getting into the water a cinch. A hydrophone and a bow-mounted underwater camera share the sounds and sights below the surface. The onboard wellness program includes a hot tub and fitness equipment.

There are three cabin categories aboard the Wilderness Adventurer: Navigator; Trailblazer; and Pathfinder. Pathfinder cabins accommodate singles and doubles.
