Small ship tours and day cruises are a popular way to explore Alaska’s oceans and rivers in a limited timeframe, with maximum aesthetics. Cruise the protected waters of the Inside Passage, the glacier-studded bays of Prince William Sound or the coastline of Southcentral and Southwest Alaska, where wildlife abounds. Brown and black bears, puffins and hundreds of other sea bird species, sea lions, sea otters, whales, moose, eagles, glaciers, and majestic mountains are all common sights while sailing in the summer months.

Would you rather explore the rivers of the interior? Take a ride on a grand sternwheeler tour, where you will see Alaska Native culture through stops in Fairbanks, an Athabascan fish camp, or an Alaska Native village.

Many small ship tours will incorporate wildlife viewing with adventure packages such as fishing trips or kayak tours, for those looking for a more active excursion.
