When you’re on the water, following a pod of whales or raft of sea otters, you can’t help but feel amazed at the size and scope of the Alaskan wilderness. It seems to go on forever, in every direction, so when a whale breaches close to your boat you almost can’t avoid feeling ridiculously lucky to have been at the right place at the right time. And then, while you’re waiting for the next lucky coincidence, you find yourself surrounded by the kind of ineffable beauty you know you just won’t be able to describe when you go back home.CALL US TODAY!
The calm, cool waters of Alaska’s Inside Passage are the perfect habitat for humpback whales. Our guests tell us close encounters with these peaceful giants have changed the way they see the world – and we know just what they mean.
Feeling adventurous? Spend a day exploring the famous Tracy Arm Fjord. You’ll see seals playing among beautiful blue icebergs as you make your way to a huge glacier less than 10 miles from the Canadian border.
You’ll stay with us on Admiralty Island, called Xootsnoowú by native Tlingit people, which means “Fortress of the Bears.” There are more bears on our island than in all 49 other states combined – and more than 2.5x the number of people here!
If your timing is lucky, you’ll be able to watch the northern lights put on a show from your private balcony overlooking the water. If the aurora aren’t on show, gaze up at the infinite night sky – or walk to the shore and be amazed by the phosphorescent algae that live in the cold waters of Pybus Bay.
A short ride in one of our skiffs will take you to the mouth of a river where, if your timing is right, you can watch salmon make their final run to spawn. When it isn’t overrun by bears dining on the feast, you can walk upstream just a few minutes to a beautiful waterfall in the thick forest.
Several sea lion colonies make their home nearby. Our guests love to float offshore (and up wind; sea lions have quite a smell!) to watch these playful, aggressive animals interact on the rocks. Along the way we typically see curious seals and camera-shy sea otters, who love to swim in groups, and even elusive killer whales.
