The True Alaskan Experience

Cultural Heritage

Discover three distinct and inspiring Native cultures on your Alaskan Dream Cruise

Alaskan Dream Cruises itineraries offer an opportunity to discover three distinct Native cultures, the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian, through visits to intriguing villages. These communities are among the least-traveled places in Alaska, and a visit can be a powerful experience.

To witness the spiritual way in which the indigenous people of Alaska are connected to the earth and to each other is inspiring. Many of the remarkable residents continue to subsist off the land and sea. As local Alaska Natives ourselves, we are grateful to be welcomed with open arms by our friends in several villages.


As you walk the streets and forests of these communities, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy several planned experiences, from dance shows to carving demonstrations. You may even witness several events unique to village life: a hunter’s return after a successful hunt of seal or deer, families working together to hang their harvest of sockeye salmon in a smoke house, or a ceremonial potlatch.

An Excellent Crew -

“It was nice getting to know the Captain and others there. It was always special to me to begin my day there seeing where we were as well as watching the sunrise over the Alaskan mountains and waters. The cruise was a great escape for us all. Sharing the experiences of the serenity of the humpback whales, the activities of the orcas, the excitement of the bears, and the challenges of the salmon going up the rivers will touch our lives forever. The towns, the people, and the scenery will always be remembered. Alaskan Dream Cruises has put together a great package for folks like us to experience. All this with a great ship captain and an excellent crew thrown in – wow. How lucky can we be.”
