Fronting on Puget Sound, with snow-covered mountains to the east and west, scenic Seattle is known as one of America's most liveable cities. The regional economy is booming with high tech industry, and international trade. Seattle made its place on the world map as the staging ground for the 1897-8 Klondike Gold Rush. With Puget Sound on the west and Lake Washington on the east, the Seattle area has more boats per capita than any other place in the US. It has some of the best shopping, coffee, views, theater, and places to ride a bicycle. Visit Seattle's birthplace, historic Pioneer Square, originally settled in 1852. Departure 16:00
At Sea:
All it takes to get the inside story of Alaska's beauty is a trip through the Inside Passage, Alaska's "water highway", where majestic fjords compete for your attention with mountain masterpieces carved by the glaciers. Small fishing villages along the coast dot breathtaking panoramas and the protected waters are perfect for spotting marine mammals and other wildlife.
Glacier Bay Cruising:
This spectacular national park and preserve displays massive glaciers that stretch 3.3 million acres from the St. Elias and Fairweather mountain ranges to the ends of the fjords. It is home to an amazing world of marine life, including humpback whales, sea otters, porpoises and harbor seals. It also possesses the highest concentration of tidewater glaciers on the planet and access is extremely limited. At the head of Glacier Bay is the Tarr Inlet, where scientists have found exposed rock that is believed to be more than 200 million years old. The Tarr Inlet is also home to the active Grand Pacific Glacier. The northeastern edge of the Fairweather Range is home to nine glaciers.  Framed by rocky slopes that stretch for more than 6,000 feet, these wondrous bodies are eclipsed only by Mt. Fairweather itself, which, at more than 15,300 feet, is the highest point in southeast Alaska. In the northeastern corner of Glacier Bay, the snow-covered Takhinsha Mountains feed the active Muir Glacier, which regularly sheds walls of ice into the bay. The brilliant blue glow of a calving glacier and the thunderous roar of ice crashing into the water are unforgettable. Arrival 10:00 / Departure 19:00
Established as a gold camp and now Alaska's capital city is the third largest city within the state. Juneau is full of contrasts, a sophisticated cosmopolitan city in the heart of the lush green Tongass National Forest. Nestled at the base of towering mountains dominated by the 1500 square mile Juneau Icefield and overlooking the Gastineau Channel, the community's rich culture and history is displayed throughout the town.
Arrival 07:00 / Departure 20:00
Bald eagles perch in the spruce and cedar trees of Sitka—often several to a branch. Russian Alaska is enthusiastically represented in a lively performance by the New Archangel Dancers. View holy paintings of the Czarist days, visit recuperating eagles at the rehabilitation center and hear the amazing story of the Cathedral fire and Sitka's mad flurry to save the church's icons and religious treasures.
Arrival 08:00 / Departure 17:00
Ketchikan was built along a steep hillside, with sections of the town built right over the water on pilings. The scenic rustic boardwalks on Creek Street preserves a distinct historic feel. Look along the water line and you're likely to see many bald eagles on waterside perches. An outstanding collection of majestic totem poles within the Saxman Village make a visit to Ketchikan essential for anyone interested in Native art. The towns nickname - Salmon Capital of the World – was already established in 1936 when seven canneries produced 1.5 Mio cases of salmon. The abundance of salmon continues to provide outstanding sportfishing opportunities for visitors in Southeast Alaska.
Arrival 07:00 / Departure 13:00
The city of gardens, Victoria is British Columbia's provincial capital and certainly its most beautiful city. Endowed with a mild climate, this picturesque, English-flavored town epitomizes the grace and charm of the Victorian era. You may explore Victoria on your own or join an optional tour to the world-famous Butchart Gardens - 55 acres of lavishly landscaped limestone quarry that were first developed in 1904 and now represent one of the finest examples of horticulture in the world. This afternoon, you may walk through the Royal British Columbia Museum. The exhibits take you back through 12,000 years of the area's history, with dioramas depicting both native villages and explorers' rough-hewn towns. Arrival 18:00 / Departure 23:30
Extend your cruise with a individual or escorted Seattle sightseeing tour, an additional overnight or a trip to the famous Pacific Northwest Mt. Rainier and Olympic National Parks. Please Inquire. Arrival 07:00
