ARRIVE DEPART
DAY 1

Juneau, AK, United States

Arrive in downtown Juneau and take in the incredible view of the Gastineau Channel from the top of Mt. Roberts. Embark National Geographic Sea Bird in the early evening. (B)

DAY 2
29 Aug 2019
Tracy Arm, AK, United States

Awake this morning in the stunningly beautiful Tracy or Endicott Arm, part of the Fords Terror Wilderness. Enter this glacially carved wilderness aboard our nimble ship, then set out to explore by expedition landing craft for a view of South Sawyer or Dawes Glaciers. If conditions permit, hop into one of our kayaks and allow yourself to be dwarfed by soaring fjord walls, as you spot curious harbor seals trailing your wake. (B,L,D)

DAY 3
30 Aug 2019
Haines, AK, United States

Haines is known as the "adventure capital of Alaska" for a very good reason. Many, in fact. If you're feeling extra adventurous, you can choose from one of many world-class hikes, cycle along the edge of a glacial fjord, or take an optional flightseeing excursion over Glacier Bay National Park. Or you may also choose to raft down the Chilkat River, calling into the ancient Chilkat Tlingit village of Klukwan for a dance demonstration and cultural interpretation. The day is full of options. (B,L,D); Note: Flightseeing option available on this day.

DAY 4
31 Aug 2019
Icy Strait, AK, United States
Inian Island, Alaska, AK, United States

Spend today searching for wildlife in these rich waters where the Pacific Ocean meets the Inside Passage. Options include an expedition landing craft cruise among the Inian Islands, where an abundance of Steller sea lions reside, quiet kayaking in the outer waters of Glacier Bay, or hikes in a lush temperate rainforest. (B,L,D)

DAY 5
01 Sep 2019
Captain's Choice

Immerse yourself in the wilds of Alaska as you kayak deep into one of Baranof or Chichagof Island's countless, breathtaking bays. Hear bald eagles call from the tops of towering spruce and hemlock trees as you paddle through these mirror-calm waters. In the afternoon, hear the stories of this ancient rainforest on an adventurous hike with your naturalist guide. (B,L,D)

DAY 6
02 Sep 2019
Sitka, AK, United States

Arrive in Sitka, southeast Alaska's only oceanfront town. After breakfast, disembark the National Geographic Sea Bird and stretch your legs at the Totem Trail in Sitka National Historic Park or other local nature trails before stopping in at the Raptor Rehabilitation Center for an up close look at Alaska's birds of prey. Transfer to the airport for flights home. (B)
