Alaskan Dream Cruises’ itineraries are designed to ensure you will enjoy an authentic and personal Alaska experience. At the conclusion of each day, you’ll feel that you’ve done much more than just travel through the Inside Passage. You will realize you’ve witnessed the region through the lens of a resident. You will have experienced natural interactions with local peoples and indigenous cultures and have walked the streets and gravel roads of towns and villages which rarely see outside visitors. There are opportunities to step onto pristine shorelines and into the cover of dense old-growth forests through special-use permits with the Forest Service, Glacier Bay National Park, and private landholder organizations. At the conclusion of each day’s adventures, you’ll find your chosen vessel to be a relaxing retreat, where guests dine on regional cuisine and learn from compelling evening presentations. You’ll also interact with officers and crew that embrace and embody True Alaskan Hospitality.

Though we’ve spent decades exploring this region, we have yet to run out of new places to explore. The wildlife continues to fascinate us and the grandeur of the scenery is never taken for granted. We invite you to join us for a journey through True Alaska. We cannot wait to share our passion for this unspoiled and untamed land with you.

Highlights


• Search for humpback whales, orcas, coastal brown bears, mountain goats and more as we venture through the region’s most abundant wildlife areas.

• Experience Alaskan culture in remote Native villages and charming towns – from the state capital to rural fishing communities.

• Explore stunning glacial fjords, including Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve and the Tracy-Arm Ford’s Terror Wilderness Area.

• Savor Alaska’s unparalleled serenity at our exclusive Orca Point Lodge on the shores of Colt Island, with king crab and a beach bonfire for s’mores.

• Learn from knowledgeable captains, naturalists, cultural heritage guides and crew. Enjoy educational
enrichment programs throughout the voyage.

Explore beautiful Sitka, the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Participate in a wilderness hike on one of the many trails in town. Visit sites that highlight the community’s rich Alaska Native and Russian history. Embark for the winding narrows north of town while searching for bald eagles, sea otters, bears, whales, and other wildlife.
Spend the day exploring remote, Inside Passage wilderness. Hike a rainforest trail featuring towering spruce and hemlock trees and lush undergrowth. Your knowledgeable guide will provide commentary on the indigenous plants and wildlife of the area. Explore Baranof Island’s charming shoreline dubbed “The Waterfall Coast” and savor an opportunity to kayak a protected bay in the area.
Scout for humpback whales and other marine mammals in Frederick Sound. Humpbacks are famous for behavior that lends itself to incredible viewing and photography, such as tail lobbing, lunge feeding, pectoral slapping, breaching, and picturesque dives that showcase their massive flukes. Other opportunities for in-depth exploration include the protected waters or shores of Security Bay, Skanax Bay, Pybus Bay, and The Brothers islands.
Through an exclusive agreement with a local Alaska Native organization, Alaskan Dream Cruises guests have private access to the beautiful wilderness of Hobart Bay. Enjoy guided hikes, kayaking, skiff rides, or sipping your favorite beverage and enjoying Alaskan snacks near a campfire. A variety of marine life and birds frequent this area, as well as black bears and other terrestrial animals.
Enjoy an exciting kayak expedition in Endicott Arm, a glacial fjord in the Tracy Arm Ford’s Terror Wilderness area. Paddle the turquoise fjord water amidst icebergs, guided by a crew member. Board your ship’s expedition skiff for a journey into Ford’s Terror, a narrow fjord that earned its name when a 19th century seafarer discovered the power of its current. View the impressive Dawes Glacier, an active tidewater glacier at the head of Endicott Arm.
Begin the day with unscripted exploration of Southeast Alaska. Your captain and crew will search for wildlife, including the area’s famous humpback whales or brown bears along Admiralty Island National Monument. 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 touch-tank. Dine on Alaskan salmon, Alaskan king crab, and prime rib from the warmth of the lodge, or nestled next to a beachside bonfire.
This remarkable national park fjord extends 65 miles, contains eight 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 the Margerie Glacier, which is known for its dramatic calving displays. A Glacier Bay National Park Service Ranger narrates the day’s program and a Native Huna Tlingit interpretive naturalist joins us to reveal traditional cultural ties to this ancient treasure. End the day in Bartlett Cove to enjoy a rainforest path, the inspiring Tlingit tribal house, and a fully articulated humpback whale skeleton.
Disembark in Alaska’s capital city of Juneau. Transfer to your hotel or the airport is complimentary.
