Overview

Discover the endless beauty, abundant wildlife and native cultures of Southeast Alaska. Aboard the nimble, 66-passenger Admiralty Dream, you’ll have access to the breathtaking byways of Alaska’s Inside Passage. With skilled naturalists by your side, you’ll encounter magnificent peaks and fjords, and ice-blue glaciers of unfathomable proportions—while learning about the traditions of Alaska’s indigenous cultures.
There will be an optional pre-trip program to Denali National Park- August 6-11,2017.

Program Highlights

• See the spray of whales only yards away and venture into secluded inlets as you get up close to nature, whether from the decks of the Admiralty Dream, or aboard its skiffs and kayaks.
Eagle_alaska_2016• Accompanied by a naturalist Expedition Leader, learn surprising details about animal behavior, glacier activity, and the wealth of natural spectacles along these protected waters.
• Learn about Alaska’s culture and living history from a Native Huna Tlingit Cultural Heritage Guide at Glacier Bay National Park, visits to a salmon hatchery, the Alaska Raptor Center, and Sitka National Historical Park, and a guided tour of the Norwegian fishing community of Petersburg.
• Joined by a Park Ranger, enter the pristine waters of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve to see the sanctuary’s deep fjords, tidewater glaciers, and snow-capped mountain ranges.

Activity Level:

Easy
This program offers a variety of activities: skiff rides, hiking, and kayaking. Activities are not strenuous for guests with average mobility. Walks are leisurely in pace to allow guests the opportunity to see and learn as much as possible about the region. Skiffs provide the mode for much of the exploration on this program and sure-footed guests can enter/exit them with little trouble. The Admiralty Dream crew is diligent in assisting guests while boarding and exiting the ship and small craft. Guests with no previous experience can easily handle the double kayaks. We expect that guests on this program can walk with good balance and go up and down stairs easily without assistance, as the ship does not have an elevator.
