Some of Alaska's most spectacular scenery lives along the coast, where rocky beaches and misty rainforest alternate with craggy, steep-walled fjords carved out by ancient glaciers. Most glacier- and wildlife-viewing cruises are day trips, weaving through icebergs or tracing the rugged coastline to get you to some of the state's most dramatic scenery. The boat's crewmembers double as naturalist guides, pointing out the best sights as the captain steers you toward wildlife like humpback whales, orcas, Steller sea lions, puffins and rafts (groups) of sea otters. Many wildlife cruises can be paired with a lunch or dinner offering, and a few also offer short side excursions like hiking or kayaking.
