Unique, immersive style of travel

Exploring Southeast Alaska on our expeditions is an unrivaled experience, and your guarantee of an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. Our expedition ships are fully equipped with tools for exploration that will enable you to:

  1. Venture into a land of mist shrouded fjords, tidewater glaciers and islands teeming with wildlife

  2. Hike through lush forests to cascading waterfalls, and ride Zodiacs into secluded inlets to look for brown bears

  3. See the Alaska undersea through live video

  4. Benefit from our 30+ years of experience and relationships in Alaska to see all you came for and more

Every day is active and engaging 

You’ll have the opportunity to hike over spongy earth on trails used by bears for centuries or along boardwalks built over bogs and winding through forests. You’ll take expedition landing craft past floating icebergs for closer looks at glaciers, and each day you’ll have the option to walk or kayak, and to join a different naturalist as you choose
