Your 4 night, 5 day voyage will be spent in unique anchorages, each holding varied opportunities for exploring: hiking, visiting waterfalls, beach combing, kayaking, lake swimming, fishing, or just relaxing on deck. World class birding awaits on this trip as we sail by colonies of puffins, murres, terns, gulls and other species of waterfowl.
Of course, no trip to Alaska's coast would be complete without mentions the spectacular whale watching. Humpback whales frequent Cape Aialik and orca, Dall's and harbor porpoise ply the waters nearby as well.
We provide individual binoculars for all passengers. We carry enough single and double passenger kayaks for all guests to enjoy. We provide guided beach walks in bear-inhabited areas so you can relax and enjoy the scenery. A motorized tender makes shore excursions a breeze.
Once underway on the first day we will head out for a deep exploration of Resurrection Bay.
We'll drop anchor buy early evening, in time for a hike or a kayak trip before dinner. Begin to soak up the serenity of this distraction-free time.
After breakfast and weather permitting, we'll weigh anchor and head out of Resurrection Bay to the adjoining fjords and around Cape Aialik. Keep you binoculars ready!
Whales and seabirds are frequently spotted here. Lunch will be served under way as we head to one of the numerous protected anchorages available. Look forward to a tasty dinner again and a new anchorage to see and explore.
If it is rough rounding the cape, we always have the option to stay in the bay while weather calms down.
Our itinerary today is relaxed. After breakfast maybe you'll go to the beach for a hike, or even a picnic lunch. Our expert kayak guide is ready to take you exploring.
Later in the day, we will sail to a nearby tidewater glacier. These ancient rivers of ice drop from their snow-topped mountain origins straight into the ocean. Watch the freshly calved ice peel away from the hull as our boat meanders respectfully through the glacier chunks. Hot soup with a view for lunch! We never rush watching this powerful spectacle, and we think you'll agree after taking in the glacier views.
When we leave, the glacier we'll head to our anchorage in the fjord. Sit down to dinner with new stunning views about us.
After breakfast we will sail back into Resurrection Bay and select a new anchorage where your final night onboard will be spent enjoying another fine meal and fantastic surroundings.
In the morning, we will enjoy a hearty breakfast and get underway by 10 AM. This leaves plenty of time for sailing back to port and disembarking.

Getting to Seward, Alaska
Seward is easily accessible by road and rail. Flying into the Anchorage airport (Ted Stevens International Airport), it's an easy drive or train ride from there to Seward.
How to get here by vehicle.
We are located in Seward, Alaska, in the Seward Boat Harbor. To get here from Anchorage, drive south on the Seward Highway for approximately 125 miles. The drive is scenic and enjoyable, taking between two and three hours depending on traffic and or road construction. If you are in a rental car, make sure you stop at Girdwood (30 miles south of Anchorage) to refuel, as there are no other fueling stations until you arrive in Seward.
Once you arrive in Seward, pass the Safeway store and take the first left off the highway onto Port Avenue, followed by an immediate right onto 4th Avenue. This will lead you to the boat harbor where we will be docked. Let us know you are here with a phone call, text or e-mail and we will help you move your luggage aboard with our dock cart. Long term parking is available – arrangements must be made with the parking office on location at the top of the ramp. Again, we can help you with these logistics, just let us know.
How to get here by train
The Alaska railroad offers trips from Anchorage to Seward. The train stops very close to the boat harbor - one block away. We will meet you at the train station and help you with your luggage. Just send us your itinerary and we will make sure to be there when you arrive.
We suggest booking your train ride after your reservation aboard has been confirmed and secured with a deposit. The train is busy in summer and it may be difficult to change reservations.
Once on board, we will show you to your stateroom, where you can relax, settle in and prepare for an extraordinary voyage!
