2024 Ice of the Inside Passage


$5,770* per person

Glaciers, one of nature’s most awe-inspiring forces, continue to carve and shape Southeast Alaska. As these magnificent “rivers of ice” flow downhill from their ice field accumulation zones, they splinter and calve (break off at the face). The resulting sound can be described as “white thunder”—a powerful rumble that must be experienced in person to fully appreciate. Dense, newly exposed ice boasts a brilliant blue color that is perfect for photography.

“Ice of the Inside Passage” will afford guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Margerie, Grand Pacific, Mendenhall, Sawyer, South Sawyer, Dawes, and LeConte glaciers—our most in-depth glacier offering to date! In addition, there may be opportunities to view the Lamplugh, Reid, Herbert, Eagle, and Sumdum glaciers as we transit the calm waters of the Inside Passage. Included in the itinerary fare is an exciting, high-speed jet boat adventure to the LeConte Glacier, plenty of time for viewing the region’s famous wildlife, kayaking, a call to the remote Alaska Native village of Kasaan, and more!

1 Sitka

Explore beautiful Sitka—the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Visit sites that highlight the community’s rich culture, history, and biodiversity. Embark for the winding narrows north of town while searching for bald eagles, sea otters, bears, whales, and other wildlife.

2 Glacier Bay National Park “Outer Bay"

Venture into Dundas Bay, within the confines of Glacier Bay National Park’s “Outer Bay.” In this secluded area, you’ll experience remarkable solitude as you paddle a shallow water coastline inaccessible to larger craft.

3 Glacier Bay National Park

This remarkable national park fjord extends 65-miles, contains tidewater glaciers, and provides pristine habitat for a wide-array of wildlife, including both brown and black bears, wolves, mountain goats, Steller sea lions, and humpback whales. The highlight for many is Margerie Glacier or John Hopkins Glacier, which have been known for their dramatic calving displays.

4 Juneau & Orca Point Lodge

Spend the day visiting highlights of the scenic capital city of Juneau. In downtown Juneau, visit the recently renovated Alaska State Museum. There will also be time to explore on your own. You may choose to visit the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, Alaska State Capitol, or take in the spectacular panoramic views of the Mount Roberts Tram. You can also delve deeper into local Native culture and history by exploring fascinating exhibits, art displays, and a clan house at the Walter Soboleff Center. End the day’s adventure with a relaxing evening at Orca Point Lodge, our own exclusive day-lodge on Colt Island. Enjoy the beautiful grounds, beach, and marine life viewing-tank. Dine on Alaska salmon, Alaska crab*, or prime rib from the warmth of the lodge, or nestled next to a beachside bonfire.

*Subject to local processor availability

5 Tracy Arm Fjord

Journey through Tracy Arm, a place the famous naturalist, John Muir, called, “a wild, unfinished Yosemite.” Renowned for its glaciers, pristine waterfalls, towering icebergs, abundant harbor seals, and granite cliffs that rise from sea level to 4,000 feet, this wilderness is often referred to by locals as one of the most scenic areas in the state.

6 Endicott Arm Fjord

Enjoy an exciting kayak or skiff expedition in stunning Endicott Arm-a glacial fjord in the Tracy Arm Ford’s Terror Wilderness area. View the impressive Dawes Glacier at the head of the arm. Later, scout for humpback whales and other wildlife in Frederick Sound.

7 Wrangell & Leconte Glacier

After exploring the charming and historical community of Wrangell, board a comfortable, high-speed jet boat and venture north through Dry Strait to LeConte Bay. En route to the spectacular LeConte Glacier—North America’s southernmost tidewater glacier—you’ll navigate through a maze of glistening icebergs in the shadows of towering, snow-capped mountains.

8 Kasaan

Walk an enchanted forest path laden with intricately carved totem poles to the Chief Son-i-Hat Whale-House— the only remaining traditional Haida longhouse in the United States. Inside stand four original house posts, or “Gáats,” that were most likely carved at Old Kasaan in about 1880.

9 Ketchikan

Disembark in Ketchikan, otherwise known as Alaska’s “First City’ and “Salmon Capital of the World.” Transfer to your hotel or the airport is complimentary.
