7-Day Inside Passage Alaska Sailing
Alaska's Inside Passage; perhaps one of the most spiritual places on our planet
Shaped by the staggering force of massive glaciers millions of years ago, Alaska’s Inside Passage boasts wildlife-filled fjords and lush island scenery... a natural habitat for bald eagles, sea lions, porpoises and whales. Its mountains are carpeted with majestic forests and springtime finds a lush and colorful display of flora and fauna. The Inside Passage Alaska region is home to Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Indians whose history is reflected in towering totem poles and their proud and welcoming descendants. In more recent times, Russian settlers left an architectural legacy of onion-domed churches gleaming with ornate icons.
Seattle, a city on Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, is surrounded by water, mountains, evergreen forests, and contains thousands of acres of parkland. Washington State’s largest city, it’s home to a large tech industry, with Microsoft and Amazon headquartered in its metropolitan area. The futuristic Space Needle, a 1962 World’s Fair legacy, is its most iconic landmark. Just east of downtown, the Capitol Hill neighborhood has long been the city’s gay epicenter, with rainbow-painted crosswalks and many ways to dive into the LGBTQ scene. Aside from Capitol Hill, there are gay-friendly and gay-owned establishments just about everywhere in town. Summer features two annual Pride festivals, while the Seattle Men’s Chorus and Seattle Women’s Chorus are the largest LGBTQ-identified men’s and women’s choruses in the world. More on Seattle here
Juneau - the capital of Alaska - stands on one of the largest wilderness areas in the United States. Here you can spend your time viewing wildlife, taking the fishing trip of your life, exploring atop glaciers or enjoying the city’s shops, restaurants and artistic flare. The second largest city in the United States by area, Juneau has been the state's capital since 1906. There are no roads connecting the city to the rest of Alaska or to the rest of North America (although ferry service is available for cars). The absence of a road network is due to the extremely rugged terrain surrounding the city. This in turn makes Juneau a de facto island city in terms of transportation, since all goods coming in and out must go by plane or boat, in spite of the city being on the Alaskan mainland. Downtown Juneau sits at sea level, below steep mountains which rise about 3,500 feet high. Atop these mountains is the Juneau Icefield, a large ice mass from which about 30 glaciers flow.

Skagway, also known as the Gateway to the Klondike, is a borough in Alaska on the Alaska Panhandle. The port of Skagway is a popular stop for cruise ships, and the tourist trade is a major factor for the area's business. The White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railroad, part of the area's mining past is now in operation purely for the tourist trade and runs throughout the summer months. Skagway is also part of the setting for Jack London's book The Call of the Wild, Will Hobbs's book Jason's Gold, and for Joe Haldeman's novel, Guardian. The John Wayne film North to Alaska (1960) was filmed nearby. More on Skagway here
Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier
Endicott Arm is a jewel in Alaska’s crown. This 30-mile waterway is surrounded by cliffs, valleys and dozens of waterfalls. Icebergs and harbor seals decorate the water below while Dawes Glacier soars into the sky above. Revel in the beauty of Mother Nature’s masterpiece and listen closely as the scenery whispers secrets of times long ago during your cruise to Alaska. Start your extraordinary day here with an early wake up call, grab an extra large coffee and enjoy this view of the absolute magnificence of nature.
Facing the Inside Passage along Alaska's southeastern coast, Ketchikan is a popular cruise port of call featuring an easily accessible array of shopping, bars and restaurants in a setting so beautiful it almost seems like a film set. Visitors will find many Native American totem poles, on display throughout town. Nearby Misty Fiords National Monument is a glacier-carved wilderness featuring snow-capped mountains, waterfalls and salmon spawning streams. Ketchikan is also home to rich wildlife including black bears, wolves and bald eagles. More about Ketchikan here
Victoria, British Columbia
Victoria, capital of British Columbia, sits on the craggy southern end of Vancouver Island. With abundant parkland, it’s known for outdoor activities. The city's British colonial past shows in its Victorian architecture, including stately Craigdarroch Castle mansion. Butchart Gardens, with 55 acres of vivid floral displays, plus statuary, water features and a carousel, is one of many formal gardens in the city. More on Victoria here
