Alaskan Dream Cruises recently added another option for travelers in 2024: an eight-day Ice of the Inside Passage itinerary.
The cruise begins in Sitka, on the 49-passenger Baranof Dream, before getting up close and personal with seven different glaciers at Margerie, Grand Pacific, Mendenhall, Sawyer, South Sawyer, Dawes and LeConte. Cruisers also spot Lamplugh, Reid, Herbert, Eagle and Sundum glaciers as they sail through the Inside Passage. Along the way, the journey visits the Haida community of Kasaan and ends in Ketchikan, the Salmon Capital of the World.
“Glaciers are an ever-changing part of the Alaska landscape, and seeing them is at the top of many visitors’ wish lists. We designed this new itinerary with them in mind and created one epic adventure,” said Jamey Cagle, owner, Alaskan Dream Cruises.
The Ice of the Inside Passage itinerary starts at $5,670 per person on seven departures between May and August 2024.
Other itineraries available this year and next include:
