Alaska's Inside Passage


see larger map >>

June 17 to 25, 2022

Cruise pristine bays and magnificent sounds aboard the 27-cabin MV Admiralty Dream—the perfect size for engaging with nature in a way that larger ships cannot.

Earth, energy and environmental science. Delve into the impacts of climate change on Alaska’s geology, human history, wildlife, energy and sustainability during lectures and in discussions with Stanford professor of energy resources engineering Margot Gerritsen, PhD ’97. Water world. Witness massive blocks of ice calving from Margerie Glacier into Glacier Bay and search for Dall sheep perched along the roughly 4,000-foot-high cliffs of Tracy Arm Fjord. Tides and totems. Learn about Tlinglit (meaning, “People of the Tides”) culture at the village of Kake, where we meet tribal members and admire one of the world’s largest totem poles. Flukes and fur. Watch for breaching humpback whales as our ship plies the icy waters of Frederick Sound, and keep an eye out for bears and moose while traveling by skiff or kayak along pristine shorelines.
