Add To Plan

Release your inner adventurer by exploring the Alaskan wilds by boat, walking through a rainforest, and canoeing near the face of an ancient glacier.

Board a comfortable catamaran at the pier and cruise along the upper Lynn Canal, the longest, deepest fjord in all of North America. It's incredibly scenic, and wildlife is everywhere, so watch for breaching whales and frolicking sea lions.

Landing at the beach at Glacier Point, you will board your safari bus for a short narrated drive through a rainforest to the "gear" station. Arriving here, you will don your extra layers of clothing, boots and life jackets and then set-off for a walk through the dense woods, a wonderfully serene experience. Before long, the gentle trail opens up to a panoramic view of the pristine Davidson River with Davidson Glacier as its centerpiece. From a distance, it's breathtaking and much like it was when famed naturalist John Muir wrote about this area in the 1870s.

The glacier is even more unforgettable up close, as you will see by boarding a 31-foot canoe and heading toward the sheer face of the ancient ice. Approaching, the details sharpen, and you can make out the intense blue of the ice, the deep crevasses, and the mountain's granite walls that frame the glacier. It's a spectacular sight, enhanced by the onboard naturalist, who will impart all sorts of interesting facts about this glorious corner of Alaska.

Then, retrace your path, leaving the canoe at the beach, returning through the rainforest, and cruising back along Lynn Canal to the pier.

A boxed lunch will be provided on the catamaran either en route to Glacier Point or on the return, dependent upon tour timing.
