Southeast Alaska’s Eastern Passages

Explore fishing towns and wilderness solitude, from islands to glacial fjords.

A Multi-Day Cruise Through Icy Fjords

Juneau to Petersburg & Petersburg to Juneau

This seven-day cruise offers a diverse experience of Southeast Alaska, from fishing towns to wilderness solitude, from islands to glacial fjords. Our goal is to give you the most remote wilderness experience possible while you enjoy the amenities of our wandering home. While we have a general itinerary planned, each trip differs depending upon the time of the tidal currents, the weather conditions, wildlife viewing opportunities, and the wishes of our clients. This glacial wilderness supports a diversity of wildlife as varied as the landscape.

Navigating through ice-filled fjords, we visit a tidewater glacier, searching the shores for brown bears, and stop our engines to watch and listen to humpback whales. We kayak up a narrow inlet that John Muir called “an ocean-filled Yosemite” and follow bear trails through rich estuarial meadows.

On the water, there is the probability of sighting humpback whales, orcas, porpoises, and Steller sea lions as well as numerous seabirds. On terra firma, we may see black bears, brown bears, and mountain goats. We average three to four hours of running time per day, allowing plenty of opportunities to explore by foot and by kayak. Our routes and anchorages are chosen to give you the best available opportunities to experience the rich and diverse environment of this temperate rain forest.
