Day Cruises  


Day Cruises

Ocean day cruises are available in several areas of Alaska with the most popular destinations found at Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords and Prince William Sound. These trips offer a wonderful glimpse of coastal Alaska with its dramatic mountain scenery, tidewater glaciers and wildlife. Whales, seals, sea lions, Orcas, sea otters, mountain goats, brown and black bears, puffins, kittiwakes and murres are commonly seen during the summer months. The adventure also has the advantage of comfortable accommodations during inclement weather as well as naturalists on board to guide passengers through the sights along the way.

Or take a step back in time with a riverboat ride on a grand sternwheeler. Travel to the Interior of Alaska and enjoy a day of relaxation, great food, colorful river lore and music as you traverse the waters of the Chena or Tanana Rivers. Get a glimpse of historic Fairbanks and stop along the way to visit an Alaskan musher, tour an Athabascan fish camp or experience an Indian village.
