Alaska's Glacier Bay Quest
The Ultimate voyage for seeing and experiencing Glacier Bay, this is a short but action packed 3 day voyage that focuses on the world renowned Glacier Bay National Park.
Words cannot adequately describe what it feels like to stand on the crest of an age old glacier, see a whale gracefully breach above the sea's surface or watch a grizzly hunt for spawning salmon in the gushing Alaskan rivers. It is also a bustling tourist destination, with massive ships cruising there everyday so travelling aboard a small ship cruise will introduce you to a world that others never see, much less experience. You'll do more than just look at Alaska through an observation lounge; you'll be an active participant in all that it has to offer, from zodiac rides around impossibly blue ice to savouring locally caught seafood at dinner.
