Itinerary Ship Map

Day 1: Begin your cruise in Ketchikan. One of “America’s Top 100 small arts communities,” Ketchikan’s impressive variety of shops and galleries feature work by many of the island’s resident artists and an assortment of souvenir items and unique gifts that make shopping in this community a must do. Board the Alaskan Dream. (D)

Day 2: The ship glides beneath Misty Fjords’ 3,000-foot glacier-sculpted cliffs. Discover the fiord’s natural history, listen to the calls of a myriad of seabirds, feel the mist from glistening waterfalls and see famous New Eddystone Rock. (B,L,D)

Day 3: Explore Kasaan, which means “pretty town” in the Tlingit language. Visit the Chief Son-I-Hat Whale House, the only remaining traditional Haida longhouse in Alaska. Inside stand four original 1880 totems brought from Old Kasaan by the chief himself. A guided walking tour will explore Thorne Bay, once the world’s largest logging camp, to see local attractions and meet resident artisans. (B,L,D)

Day 4: Arrive in Wrangell, located in the heart of the Tongass National Forest on the northern tip of Wrangell Island. Home to a little over 2,000 permanent residents, Wrangell is the only town in Alaska to have been under the jurisdiction of three flags, and ruled by four nations—the Tlingit, Russia, England and the United States. Enjoy several options to explore, including a guided walking tour and a trip to the Wrangell Museum. Visit the intriguing State Historic Park, Petroglyph Beach, which contains the highest concentration of petroglyphs in Southeast Alaska. (B,L,D)

Day 5: Journey through Tracy or Endicott Arm in the Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness, a place the famous naturalist, John Muir, referred to as, “A wild, unfinished Yosemite.” Renowned for its pristine waterfalls, towering icebergs, abundant harbor seals, and granite cliffs that rise from sea level to 4,000 feet, this wilderness is often referred to by locals as one of the most scenic areas in the state. Both of these dramatic glacial fjords offer stunning views of tidewater glaciers. Skiff excursions provide the opportunity to view the majesty of the area in even greater detail. (B,L,D)

Day 6: Spend the day visiting highlights of the scenic capital city of Juneau, including the world famous Mendenhall Glacier. In downtown Juneau, visit the recently renovated Alaska State Museum. There will also be time to explore on your own. End the day’s adventure with a relaxing evening at Orca Point Lodge, Alaskan Dream Cruises’ exclusive day-lodge on Colt Island. Enjoy the beautiful grounds, beach, and marine life touch-tank. Dine on Alaskan salmon, Alaskan king crab or prime rib from the warmth of the lodge, or nestled next to a beachside bonfire. (B,L,D)

Day 7: Discover Glacier Bay National Park, which extends 65 miles, contains eight tidewater glaciers and provides pristine habitat for a wide-array of wildlife, including both brown and black bears, wolves, Steller sea lions and humpback whales. The highlight for many is the Margerie Glacier, known for its dramatic calving displays. A National Park Service Ranger narrates today’s program, and a Native Hun Tlingit interpretive naturalist joins us to reveal traditional ties to this ancient treasure. (B,L,D)

Day 8: Savor the serenity of raw wilderness on an unscripted day of Southeast Alaska discovery. Opportunities may include a coastline kayak paddle, up-close whale encounters or a hike through an alluring old-growth forest. (B,L,D)

Day 9: Disembark in Sitka, the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. (B)
