Alaska is America’s last frontier and one of the best places for a family vacation. Cruising on a small ship allows for exploring down small waterways, visiting parks and viewing wilderness that large ships can’t access. It’s one of the most intimate ways to explore the breadth of Alaska’s outdoors.
Here are some ideas for your custom family vacation in Alaska!
Whale Watching in the Icy Strait
The Icy Strait is a great place to hang out on the deck of the ship and look for whales as its part of the most populated whale waters in all of Southeast Alaska.
Explore Glacier Bay National Park
Disembark in Bartlett Cove, part of UNESCO World Heritage Site Glacier Bay National Park, and hike through forest trails searching for bears, moose, puffins, and bald eagles.
Kayak the Chatham Strait
Venture on the Chatham Strait to search for the secret coves, fjords, and anchorages that define the area and are ripe for adventure.
View Glaciers Up Close
Some of the best sites in the smaller passages of Alaska are the impressively large glaciers like Dawes, Grand Pacific, Margerie, and Johns Hopkins.
Expedition Through Port Houghton and Stephen’s Passage
Explore one of the most remote and wildest places of the Alaskan wilderness, where you’re more likely to see a blue heron, bald eagle, harbor seal, oystercatcher, or black bear than a fellow human.
