Alaskan Dream Cruises itineraries offer an opportunity to discover three distinct Native cultures, the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian.
These communities are among the least-traveled places in Alaska, and a visit can be a powerful experience. You'll be inspired by the spiritual way in which indigenous people of Alaska are connected to the earth and to each other. Many of the remarkable residents continue to subsist off of 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.
Dedication To Our Future
Alaskan Dream Cruises is privileged to visit many rural towns and villages as part of our effort to showcase True Alaska. Each of these places have a special charm and beauty–from the frontier spirit of Thorne Bay to the powerful Tlingit culture of Kake.
Youth in our small communities can be limited in their opportunities by tight budgets and funding. As part of our continued efforts to support rural school districts, we are proud to donate $5 from each 2020 booking to local Southeast Alaska school activities. We thank you for joining hands with us in supporting Alaska’s youth.
