Alaska Inside Passage Navigation

The intricate waterways, dramatic landscapes, and rich wildlife of Alaska’s Inside Passage are most accessible by small boat, such as AdventureSmith’s 75-foot-long M/V Catalyst. The refitted 12-passenger research vessel winds its way from Petersburg to Juneau, and includes kayaking stops in such seldom-visited anchorages as Ford’s Terror, where mile-high granite walls rise out of the sea. Included in the cost of a the cruise: a contribution to the sustainable-travel MyClimate Initiative through AdventureSmith’s own “carbon-free cruising” program.
