Description of Inner Reaches Western Coves cruise in Alaska

The Alaskan mountains reach up to the sky and the thick Sitka spruces grow all the way down to the shore. The best way to admire the view is from a small boat. Be totally dwarfed by the scenery, and be agile at slipping from sound to strait in your pursuit of dramatic calving glaciers, black bears, wolves and playful harbour seals.

Starting and ending in Juneau, this eight-day cruise spends lots of time in Glacier Bay National Park accompanied by an expert park ranger. Whether you’re keeping your eyes peeled for wolves, watching playful sea lions, or listening to ice crashing into the water off Margerie Glacier, three full days in Glacier Bay National Park won’t feel like enough. But there’s more to see, and you’ll soon reach Haines, a renowned adventure capital where you can hike, track a black bear through the forest, and look out for enormous bald eagles.

There’s plenty of time to paddleboard and kayak, and explore by zodiac along the way on this cruise. For bragging rights, do a ‘Polar Plunge’ en route – a quick-as-you-can dip in the sea. Your smart-looking boat has an on-board hot tub. Make sure you head straight there after your ice-cold dip.
