Ketchikan - Cruise Embarkation
Enjoy the morning in Ketchikan on your own, transfer will be provided where your crewmember will be waiting to guide you to your cabin. They wish to invite you to gather in the forward lounge for a drink and welcome aboard hors d’oeuvres.
Misty Fjord & Ketchikan
Explore the pristine beauty of Misty Fjords. Along the way stop to view an active bald eagle’s nest, a Tlingit pictograph, and New Eddystone Rock; an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea. Learn the natural history of the fjords, listen to the call of nesting seabirds, and feel the mist of glistening waterfalls while gliding quietly beneath 3,000-foot glacier-sculpted cliffs.
Thorne Bay & Kasaan
Thorne Bay was once the largest logging camp in the world. Venture on a gentle hike through the Tongass National Forest to view totems and local petroglyphs. Kasaan means “pretty town” in the Tlingit language. Here visit The Chief Son-I-Hat Whale House, the only remaining Haida clan house in Alaska.
Petersburg & Wrangell
Take a jet boat tour of the Stikine River, the fastest navigable free-flowing river left in North America, and enjoy a city walking tour. Petersburg is a fishing town established by Norwegian fishermen in the late 1800’s. At the Sons of Norway Hall, enjoy a Norwegian Folk Dance show performed by Petersburg’s children. In Wrangell, take a jet boat tour of the Stikine River – the fastest navigable freeflowing river left in North America – and enjoy a city walking tour. This evening the vessel will be anchored for the night.
Enjoy exclusive access to Hobart Bay, a wilderness adventure base camp, built especially for guests of Alaskan Dream Cruises. The camp is outfitted with sea kayaks, small outboard driven Zego runabouts, and ATVs to ride the old logging roads through the lush coastal rainforest. Be amazed at the vistas of the surrounding area. Experience aspects of each of these Alaskan lifestyle activities accompanied by your Expedition Leader and crew.
Arrive at Tracy Arm early and spend much of the day awe-struck by the natural wonders of this narrow, twisting 30-mile long fjord. Hundreds of waterfalls spill off high granite cliffs, harbor seals rest on ice floes, and the Twin Sawyer Glaciers regularly calve icebergs into the fjord.
Auke Bay/Juneau & Orca Point Lodge
Enjoy highlights of the scenic state capital of Alaska which will include the majestic Mendenhall Glacier and Mount Roberts Tramway. Later in the day depart Juneau to Colt Island, go ashore for an Alaska salmon and king crab dinner at the Orca Point Lodge.
A Glacier Bay National Park Service Ranger will lead today’s programming and a Native Huna Tlingit interpretive naturalist joins the group to reveal traditional ties to this ancient treasured land.
