Trip Overview

Join this one-of-a-kind, seven-night, exploration-style cruise through the Inside Passage from Vancouver to Juneau during the long days of summer. The exclusively chartered, Five-Star, small ship Star Breeze navigates isolated inlets and coves inaccessible to larger vessels, offering a superior viewing experience and bringing you up close to the most spectacular scenery of Canada and southeastern Alaska. During naturalist-led Zodiac excursions and from the comfort of your own spacious, ocean-view Suite or Stateroom, see cobalt blue glaciers, towering mountains, untouched coastlines and abundant wildlife—whales, harbor seals, porpoises, sea lions, sea otters and eagles in their natural habitat. Experience the dramatic Tracy Arm Fjord. Call at the historic fishing towns of Sitka, Petersburg, and Ketchikan, where you will step back into the gold rush era and discover the living heritage of the indigenous Tlingit people. An onboard team of naturalists provides a series of lectures focused on the local wildlife and landscapes.

What to Expect

Activity Level 3

This is a soft, expedition-style itinerary involving cruising excursions by Zodiac inflatable craft to enhance your wildlife viewing. Passengers must be able to negotiate a steep gangway and get in and out of the Zodiacs from a shipboard platform with minimal assistance. During shore excursions, some walking along uneven and/or slippery terrain is to be expected. Walking excursions can cover distances of at least one mile and are approximately three hours in length. Please be advised that the ship may either dock in port or tender ashore by small boat or Zodiac inflatable landing craft. Tenders may involve a dry landing (participants step from the tender vessel directly onto land or a dock) or a wet landing (participants step from the tender vessel into knee-deep water and wade ashore).
