Wild Alaska Family Escape: Juneau to Ketchikan
About this Trip
Navigate narrow straits and glacial bays aboard the nimble National Geographic Sea Lion on this exploration of Southeast Alaska. In Ketchikan, visit the Totem Heritage Center to view a unique collection of 19th-century Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian totem poles from abandoned villages around Ketchikan. Wake up to catch the sunrise over the stunning cliffs of Misty Fjords National Monument, rising more than 2,000 feet above the deep blue waters of the fjord. Set out by kayak to get close to the forested banks and the many dramatic waterfalls cascading down the cliffs. Spend the afternoon exploring the town of Wrangell, including a visit to a tribal house and a beach famous for native petroglyphs. Cruise into the Sumner Strait, keeping watch for humpback whales surfacing and sea otters gliding through the clear water. Disembark in Juneau and visit the Alaska State Museum to learn about the history and culture of this incredible region of the world. Throughout the cruise, learn under the sure guidance of an expedition leader and five veteran naturalists, including an undersea specialist and photo instructor––the largest and most knowledgeable expedition team in Alaska. Their knowledge and passion are the key to this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
From $4,660 per person plus airfare.
