Glaciers, whales and the last frontier
Millions of people visit southeast Alaska for its grandeur and frontier history. But a fraction of these people will actually visit Alaska’s wilderness.

On this Alaska adventure, get close to wild Alaska’s tidewater glaciers, humpback whales and enter the ancient rainforests. This small ship cruise, sailing aboard the classic schooner Maple Leaf, is for the adventurous who seek the road less travelled.

Trip Description
Southeast Alaska breathes majesty with every breath. It is a pristine wilderness of fjords, islands, rivers, and tidewater glaciers.
