Leave the crowds of Skagway behind on this unique combo excursion. This tour uses three modes of travel--catamaran, 12-passenger van, and Alaskan bush plane--to explore Alaska's best glaciers, scenery, and wildlife.

The trip begins with a 45-minute catamaran cruise along the steep-walled fjord connecting Skagway to Haines. More than a dozen unnamed waterfalls drop hundreds of feet from the cliffs on both sides of the boat. You'll learn about the indigenous Tlingit culture, marvel at the scenery, and look for humpback whales, harbor seals, and a variety of seabirds.

Upon arrival in Haines, you'll meet your expert guide and enjoy a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park. This gorgeous park has it all--a turquoise lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains, important Tlingit cultural sites, and a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea. Keep an eye out for wildlife. Bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears are often seen here. Your guide will choose a scenic spot for a boxed lunch.

Next, board one of Alaska's famous bush planes for a 50-minute glacier tour. Soar past the Rainbow Glacier, a hanging glacier with an immense waterfall pouring from its face. Continue to the Davidson Glacier for a look down upon the Davidson Icefall, crisscrossed with crevasses and ice towers. This is a great opportunity to look for mountain goats as you glide over a sea of ice on your way back to Skagway, where you will be returned to the cruise ship pier or your hotel.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
