Roundtrip Anchorage

400x300-AK-Whittier_stock_photo.jpg

DAY 1

Anchorage | Whittier – Embarkation
After you’re met in Anchorage, transfer by coach to Whittier: seaside village, birder’s haven, and the gateway to Prince William Sound. Come aboard, meet your crew, and unpack your adventurous spirit.

DAY 2

Chenega / Icy Bay
Wake up in the glacial waterways of Icy Bay. Flowing down from the 4,000-foot surrounding peaks, Chenega, Tigertail, and Tiger glaciers are all options this morning. Hop in a skiff, and if conditions are right, kayak in a remote cove tucked into the shoreline. Your expedition team shares how glaciers sculpt and alter the landscape on a daily basis. Feel the essence of this land of the Chenega people, meaning “beneath the mountain,” as you weave through these deserted islands by kayak, skiff, and yacht.

DAY 3

Captain’s Choice
Tuck into the southern reaches of Prince William Sound, exploring its sculpted islands. Some call it “gunkholing”—nosing around the next cove—and there’s plenty to see. Search for whales, seals, sea lions, and seabirds from the bow or opt to kayak or beachcomb for a closer look at island life with natural and cultural history notes from your guides.

DAY 4

Cordova, Alaska
Accompanied by guides, head out for a hike below Sheridan Glacier this morning with an afternoon on your own to explore Cordova. Or, join your shipmates on a walking tour of this tiny fishing town at the mouth of the Copper River. With a population of 2,300 and no roads connecting to other towns, Cordova is only accessible by air or water. Take in the town’s Native history by nature walk, hard charger hike, an Eyak Tribe cultural program, or Prince William Sound Science Center exploration before settling back on board for a quiet overnight anchorage.

DAY 5

Columbia Glacier
Options aplenty this morning. Hike, kayak, skiff, or try your hand at stand up paddle boarding in a quiet cove before a hearty lunch back onboard. Next up: towering icebergs born from the approaching Columbia Glacier. Winding its way 32 miles back through Chugach Mountains and with constantly changing conditions, your captain finds the best route to view this massive glacier.
370x278-AK-Meares_Glacier.jpg

DAY 6

Unakwik Inlet | Meares Glacier
Arctic terns and bald eagles, harbor seals resting on icebergs, and the massive Meares Glacier as your backdrop, Unakwik Inlet is the perfect place to dip your paddle in the water for a kayak. Or, join a skiff tour to get farther faster in glacier country. This is wilderness at its wildest. Feel the mountains closing in as you cruise through Esther Passage. View a fish hatchery and learn about Alaska’s salmon species. Tonight, join your expedition leader for an interpretive presentation before a relaxing soak in the hot tub under the fading sun.

DAY 7

College Fjord | Barry Arm
Day of the grand finales. Big mountains, big ice, and big smiles as we wind down our adventure in the company of all that is quintessentially Alaska. Sea otters float on their backs on beds of kelp. Watch them lounge before diving and rising with puffins in search of food. Take it all in from a kayak or skiff before capping off your week with a celebratory Farewell Dinner and slideshow.
370x278-AK-Sailboat_in_Passage_Canal.jpg

DAY 8

Whittier | Anchorage – Disembarkation
One last breakfast with new friends before your coach transfer from Whittier along Turnagain Arm on your way back to Anchorage. Then transfer back to the Anchorage airport.

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

Photo of tidewater glaciers in College Fjord, in the northern area of Prince William Sound in Alaska

College Fjord & Barry Arm

North Prince William Sound’s College Fjord contains five tidewater glaciers, five large valley glaciers, and dozens of smaller glaciers. The smaller glaciers were discovered in 1899 by an expedition team that included Harvard professor and mineralogy instructor Charles Palache and Amherst professor John Muir who named them after East Coast colleges such as Barnard, Bryn Mar, and Holyoke. Women’s colleges are on the northwest side and men’s colleges on the southeast. Harvard Glacier, at one and half miles wide and going back to the Chugach Icefield for 24 miles, is the largest of the group. Barry Arm contains numerous tidewater glaciers including Cascade, Barry, and Coxe. 

Photo of wildflowers in bloom at Heather Bay near Columbia Glacier

Columbia Glacier

One of the most quickly changing tidewater glaciers in the world, Columbia Glacier descends from a 1,000 foot icefield into Prince William Sound. The glacier was first surveyed in 1794 and since 1980 has rapidly retreated. Between 2007 and 2010 the terminus of the glacier floated through the deep water between Great Nunatak and Kadin Peaks. Since then, Columbia Glacier calving has changed from a fairly steady rate to more sporadic, larger calving. In 2011 the terminus split into two separate glaciers that now calve in two distinct areas.

At the entrance to the glacier sits Heather Bay and low-lying Heather Island. This island features expansive beaches, beached bergs, and seabirds including nesting sites for gulls, oystercatchers, and loons. About a half mile from the island is Shoup Bay State Marine Park offering shore walks, meadows, fresh water streams, and birding aplenty.

Photo of the town of Cordova, Alaska, from the harbor

Cordova, Alaska

First named Puerto Cordova by the Spanish explorer Salvador Fidalgo in 1790, Cordova sits at the mouth of the Copper River, accessible only by boat or plane. After it was found to be a source of copper ore in the early 1900s, Cordova became the end of the Copper River and Northwestern Railway. In the first half of the 20th century Cordova also became “the razor clam capital of the world.” Today its main industry is commercial fishing, specifically salmon. Its original resident Native Eyak, Chugach Region People, Tlingit, and Athabaskans are now collectively recognized as one tribe.

Nearby trails are popular for recreation. Many visitors take to the Ski Hill Trail and the Heney Ridge or “Big Tree” Trail’s meandering forest and river walk with a 20+-foot diameter spruce tree an hour in. The Sheridan Glacier Trail offers a hard charger hike up the side of a glacier as well as a shorter moraine trail. On the cultural side of exploration, Cordova’s Prince William Sound Science Center gives insight into the Exxon Valdez oil spill while the Copper River Watershed Project offers fishing industry and history walks. Throughout the year a number of town festivals attract enthusiasts of all kinds from the Iceworm, Salmon Jam, and Copper River Wild Salmon Festivals to the Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival celebrating the area’s species of sandpipers and dunlin.

View of Chenega Glacier from Icy Bay

Icy Bay

Icy Bay is a body of water formed by the retreat of the Guyot, Yahtse, and Tyndell glaciers in the last 100 years. Once blocked by a glacier, the glacial retreat has opened up this over-30-mile-long fjord. The area is now filled with large icebergs and its resident seals, small pockets of still glacial green water, and views of Tiger and Chenega Glaciers. Passing a bend in the fjord reveals first Chenega, wide and tall. Tiger sits on the other side with mountains wrapping around the area.

Photo of sand dunes and driftwood characteristic of Prince William Sound beaches

Montague, Hinchinbrook, and Hawkins Islands

These three islands west and southwest of Cordova offer massive sand beaches, bluffs, and dunes and enjoy sightings of marmots, oystercatchers, bears, and seabirds.

Montague, at 50 miles long, is made of steep peaks, rocky ledges and cliffs, and a rugged shoreline. Hinchinbrook is 22 miles long with some homes of local fisher families and an alpine habitat, some of it covered in permanent snowfields. Hawkins is also 22 miles long and is made of muskeg meadows of wildflowers bordered by a forest and gravel beaches.

Photo of Meares Glacier and Unakwik Inlet

Unakwik Inlet & Meares Glacier

Unakwik Inlet’s rocky beaches present opportunities to observe the calving of Meares Glacier, the only tidewater glacier at the head of the inlet. Named for British naval captain John Meares, Meares glacier is one mile wide where it meets the inlet and is currently advancing. As you travel through Unakwik Inlet, the mountains on both sides appear taller and snowier the further you go. Harbor seals are everywhere, floating on bergs on top of the bright blue and green water. Sea otters and birds also make their home in the inlet. 

Photo of the mountains along Passage Canal in Prince William Sound, Alaska

Whittier, Alaska

With surrounding views of snow-capped mountains and glaciers, Wittier is a picturesque welcome to Prince William Sound. Both the town and nearby glacier are named after poet John Whittier. Over the years Whittier has been home to Chugach Natives, Russians, and prospecting miners in the gold rush days. Today it has less than 300 residents, most of who live in the former army barracks Begich Towers—truly a community under one roof and a small town with big history and character.

This coastal town is popular with wildlife enthusiasts—humpbacks and Dall’s porpoise have been spotted in the channel—and for its location within the Chugach National Forest.

Vessels for this Itinerary

270_180_safari_quest.jpg

Safari Quest

Agile, spry, and with clean design lines, the Safari Quest—carrying just 22 guests—can cut into the tiniest nooks that even our other small vessels can’t reach. This includes coveted wilderness areas with highly limited access of no more than two groups of twelve guests per day. For those most special adventures, she is the ticket in. While small is her secret for access, on the inside this yacht is anything but. Spacious and comfy cabins. A cozy and welcoming lounge and dining room. And plenty of onboard niches for nestling and relaxing. On a boat this size, camaraderie is near-instant—feel the love.

Onboard Features: Full-beam swim step; underwater bow-mounted camera; kayaks, paddle boards, inflatable skiffs, hiking poles; on-deck hot tub; fitness equipment; DVD and book library

Cabin Features: TV/DVD player; heated tile floor in all bathrooms; hair dryer, bathrobes, conditioning shampoo, body wash; binoculars; reusable water bottles
