Use the itinerary as a guide only. Itineraries may be altered due to weather, wildlife, national park regulation or at the captain’s discretion. The ability to be flexible makes this type of small ship cruising unique.
This itinerary is subject to change based on park area closures/openings, permits, weather, travel conditions and wildlife movements. Glacier Bay is a vast park with many spectacular fjords. The ship may also journey outside the park to Tongass National Forest or the beautiful Outer Coast Island’s, with aim to be where one should see whales, bears, sea lions, eagles, wild flowers and soaring landscapes but the anchorage may change dependent on the above. Other destinations may include Dundas Bay, Sundew Cove, Sebree Cove, Idaho Inlet, the East Arm and the Islands. Many times, the ship is following the wildlife as they move with their food source; this flexibility enables the greatest viewing possibilities.
The Sea Wolf offers wider decks, access to all public areas and three accessible staterooms. A McKinnon Hugger is available to lift persons with disabilities into kayaks for wilderness paddles. For those who require a wheelchair or have any other special needs, contact AdventureSmith to see if this cruise is a good fit.
