North America Alaska Cruise

Alaska’s Glacier Wilderness with Glacier Bay

Spend 8 days circumnavigating Admiralty Island in Alaska’s Inside Passage. Cruise through the largest national forest in the United States (Tongass) where black and brown bears, mountain goats and bald eagles make their home. View Alaska’s massive glaciers and glide around in the remote bays of Glacier Bay National Park, with a full day dedicated to exploring this famed national park. In the still of the Southeast Alaska evening, watch bears ambling along wild shorelines. And in the swirling currents below, humpback whales forage in the bountiful waters along the sheltered shoreline. Meet Alaska and its wildlife at eye level, by boat and foot. 

Kayak, stand-up paddleboard, skiff, hike and beach excursions offer opportunities to explore the wilderness up close while an unhurried schedule means more time for wildlife viewing. This recipe for adventure makes this itinerary a prime selection for our Alaska family cruises. Onboard naturalists and expedition leaders offer daily insights and guided nature walks. Book this Alaska glacier cruise for superior service, fine cuisine and intimate experiences that only an Alaska small ship cruise can offer.

The 8-day Alaska’s Wilderness with Glacier Bay cruise (formerly Alaska’s Glacier Country) begins and ends in Juneau. Passage is aboard the 22-guest Safari Quest. This vessel features first-class accommodations for an itinerary filled with authentic exploration and the glaciers travelers come to Alaska to see. The Safari Quest is the perfect basecamp for Alaska luxury cruises due to her private balconies and included fine spirits, wines and microbrews. The Safari Quest is also a favorite among AdventureSmith’s many Alaska yacht charters for private cruising due to her small size.
