Vancouver to Vancouver
This is the untamed Alaska you wanted to see and the best way to see it. Venture from Vancouver, British Columbia on a newly transformed all-suite yacht to Alaskan fjords and little-known villages during this 3-week exploration rich in orca pods, totem poles, soaring eagles, and calving glaciers. Slip past majestic 3,000-foot-high cliffs in your kayak during a guided tour of Misty Fjords, a wilderness expedition conveniently launched from the yachts. Skim across wave crests in a sleek jet boat bound for the Stikine River Delta, the mouth of America’s last authentically wild North American river. Follow your onboard Exploration Leader into the coastal woodlands surrounding Herring Cove outside Sitka and catch glimpses of seals, seabirds, bald eagles, and even black bear. Stand amid aromatic wood shavings as you meet a Native Master Carver crafting totem poles. Slurp king crab bisque, savor halibut dumplings, and sip handcrafted Alaskan amber ales during a delicious Juneau culinary tour. Cast a line for cod, halibut and salmon during a guided fishing excursion near Petersburg, a small ship exclusive.

Day 1: Vancouver
Vancouver’s location at the mouth of the Fraser River and on the waterways of the Strait of Georgia, Howe Sound, Burrard Inlet and all their tributaries makes this busy seaport an easy place for meeting.

Day 2: Canadian Inside Passage
Today we cruise the fjords of Canada’s Inside Passage boasting centuries-old coastal rainforests, beaches, waterfalls and mountains. Over 25,000 miles of rugged coastline lie in Canada’s Inside Passage, joining Alaska’s 15,000 miles of inside waters and provides a safe and sheltered West Coast waterway transit.  In this isolated wilderness look for coastal First Nations longhouses fronted with proud totems and a variety of marine life, from orcas and porpoises to some of the largest populations of bald eagles in the world.

Dubbed the Salmon Capital of the World, Ketchikan is the southeastern-most town in Alaska and is home to the world’s largest collection of standing totem poles that are found throughout the city and at four major locations: Saxman Totem Park, Totem Bight State Park, Potlatch Park, and the Totem Heritage Center. Other attractions of Ketchikan are Creek Street, a boardwalk road built on pilings over Ketchikan Creek and the Waterfront Promenade that skirts the bustling shoreline with inviting whale-tail benches to take in the view.
