Embark on a Journey of Discovery: An 8-Day Alaska Cruise Adventure

Escape from the ordinary on our 8-day Alaska Cruise. Aboard the David B, you’ll spend your days and nights surrounded by the beauty of the Tongass National Forest. Each day you’ll cruise to a new anchorage, and watch for whales, seals, sea otters, sea lions, bears, eagles, and ravens. You’ll have opportunities to hike in ancient forests and poke around in tide pools. You’ll get to visit a tidewater glacier, and paddle kayaks along remote shorelines. On our cruises, you’ll be in the heart of the wilderness experiencing the sights and sounds of southeast Alaska.

Alaska is renowned for its abundant wildlife, and this cruise offers ample opportunities to witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Whether it’s the thrill of seeing a whale breaching, the delight in spotting a bear along the shoreline, or the joy of observing a playful sea otter, these encounters are reminders of the wonder of the natural world. And for those who love to explore the smaller wonders, tidepooling provides a fascinating glimpse into the vibrant marine life that thrives in the intertidal zones.

 


Cruise Through the Heart of Alaska’s Awe-Inspiring Beauty

Our cruise takes you into the heart of Alaska’s untamed wilderness, where every moment is a new opportunity for awe and wonder. From the majestic sight of a tidewater glacier to the tranquility of secluded anchorages, the landscapes you’ll encounter are as diverse as they are stunning. Go for a kayak paddle through calm reflective waters, where the only sounds are your paddle breaking the surface and the distant call of an eagle. Or picture yourself on a skiff, speeding into canyon-like fjords with walls so close you feel you can touch them.

“It’s hard to find words to express my memories of my recent trip. In short, it was the “experience of a lifetime”. I have traveled to lots of places around the world, but I doubt that I will ever top this last trip for just plain enjoyment.”

“I am a licensed charter captain on the great lakes, but I was blown away by the knowledge and skill demonstrated by Jeffery and Christine in their daily routine of navigating the David B safely from place to place. Christine’s culinary skills are awesome too. They worked tirelessly to make sure that everyone got to enjoy everything.”

“I’ll be back.”
