Embark the ship in Juneau.
Day 1: Juneau
Arrive in Juneau and board the Wilderness Adventurer. Settle into your cabin at your leisure, explore the on board amenities and meet the crew.
Day 2: Tracy Arm Wilderness - Frederick Sound
The ship sails to the end of Tracy Arm, a winding fjord with sheer granite walls, hundreds of cascading waterfalls, and some of the largest icebergs in all of Alaska. The fjord is home to brown and black bears, deer, wolves, harbor seals, and birds such as arctic terns and pigeon guillemots. Later the ship continues onto Frederick Sound—summer feeding ground for the northern hemisphere’s largest concentration of humpback whales.
Day 3: Thomas Bay
Today enjoy a range of exhilarating activities including kayaking and a lush forest trek on a scenic rainforest trail, or alternatively go on a roundtrip 11-mile hike to the glacially-fed and rarely visited Patterson Lake for spectacular kayaking.
Day 4: Glacial Landscapes - Wrangell Narrows
Explore glacial landscapes and enjoy some adventurous activities including kayaking, paddle boarding, skiff riding, or hiking today.
Day 5: Wrangell
Arrive in Wrangell, one of the oldest towns in Alaska and home to native culture, wildlife, and wonder. Before venturing into town, local islanders join you on board for an in-depth presentation on Tlingit and Haida cultures. View recently carved totem poles at Kiksetti Totem Park and step inside the famed and historically significant Chief Shakes Tribal House.
Day 6: Behm Canal
Today you can paddle along the canal or venture out on an intertidal shore walk or low-elevation trek on the Cleveland Peninsula where wildlife abounds including orca, porpoise, seals, sea lions, brown and black bears, mink, marten, eagles, and otters.
Day 7: Misty Fjords National Monument
Affectionately called “The Yosemite of the North,” Misty Fjords National Monument represents nearly every ecosystem found in Southeast Alaska. Glacial valleys filled with sea water, and sheer 3,000 foot cliffs are a haven for sea birds, brown and black bears, mountain goats, Sitka black-tailed deer, mink, moose, river otters, and other wildlife. Glide through Walker Cove or Rudyerd Bay by kayak or explore by skiff soaking in the splendor of this largely forgotten corner of the world. This evening, join the Captain in a farewell toast and reminisce about your Alaskan journey over a sumptuous dinner.
Day 8: Ketchikan
After a final breakfast on board, the yacht will arrive in Ketchikan. A transfer to the Juneau airport or to the Baranof Hotel is included.
