Day 1

Land in Alaska at one of two international airports, Juneau or Sitka.
*Juneau, Alaska
is the capital city of the state of Alaska. Located in the Gastineau Channel and the Alaskan panhandle, it is a unified municipality and the second-largest city in the United States by area
*Sitka, Alaska
is a unified city-borough in the southeast portion of the U.S. state of Alaska. It was formerly known as New Archangel while under Russian rule from 1799 to 1867. The city is situated on the west side of Baranof Island and the south half of Chichagof Island in the Alexander Archipelago of the Pacific Ocean
Take local transportation to the harbor to board the 'Midnight Sun'.
After getting settled in your cabins we'll have a safety orientation,
We leave it all behind in our wake!!

Day 2

From Juneau we cruise up Tracy Arm,

a fjord named after the Secretary of the Navy Benjamin Franklin Tracy. It is located about 45 miles south of Juneau and 70 miles north of Petersburg, Alaska, off of Holkham Bay and adjacent to Stephens Passage within the Tongass National forest.
A 25 mile long fjord carved out by the Sawyer glacier over thousands of years. The 2000' rock walls showing the striations (scaring where the ice carved the rock) and 5000' mountains to the east tower up as we make our way up to the south Sawyer Glacier, a tidewater glacier that calves off large ice bergs as it slowly moves down the valley. We always have to pay close attention watching for ice bergs along the way. In the month of June we are cautious not to disturb the harbor seals as they are pupping up on the ice. Hoping to avoid the transient Killer whales.

Day 3

Let’s stop and do a little fishing. Rock fish and halibut anyone? This 9 year old boy from Massachusetts caught his first halibut. 49" and weighing in about 97 pounds. He fought for this fish for over 20 minutes and will never forget the experience. My chef, Adam, prepared some of the halibut that night, doesn't get any fresher than that. They shipped home over 30 lbs. Later in the summer the salmon fishing improves with a limit of 6 fish.
These are the kinds of memories that I love to share with my guests!
You can drop crab pots or shrimp pots a night or two.

Day 4

How about we spend some time with the magnificent humpback Whales!! These Humpbacks winter in the Hawaiian Islands where they breed and give birth in the warmer waters. Come spring time they migrate back to Alaska. After a few winter months of not eating they can lose 20% to 30% of their body mass and need the nutrient rich waters of Alaska to replenish. As filter feeders they feed on krill and small fish and can devour as much as a ton daily.

Day 5

Let’s have some fun activities. Of course we never really wait for day 5 for this! We have 3 double kayaks as well as 3 Stand up Paddle boards. An occasional polar bear plunge is always a option for brave. It's amazing how fast some climb back up on the boat. The water temperature warms up by mid summer to a steamy 54 to 58 degrees.
For the cold and travel times we have a number of games and cards on board as well as a selection of movies and nature documentaries.

Day 7

As Jackson Browne sings, All good things must come to an end.

Day 6

We never know when a black bear or a large Coastal brown bear is going to show up along the shoreline. Brown and grizzly bears are classified as the same species even though there are notable differences between them. Kodiak bears (brown bears from the Kodiak Archipelago) are classified as a distinct subspecies from those on the mainland because they have been isolated from other bears since the last ice age about 12,000 years ago. “Brown bears” typically live along the southern coast of the state where they have access to seasonally abundant spawning salmon. The coastal areas also provide a rich array of vegetation they can use as food as well as a milder climate. This allows them to grow larger and live in higher densities than their “grizzly” cousins in the northern and interior parts of the state. To minimize confusion, this report uses the term “brown bear” to refer to all members of Ursus arctos.
