New Ship & 2022 Dates Added

News of our amazing 2021 season has gotten out and excitement is high for Alaska in 2022! To meet demand we’ve added an extra ship—the 62-guest National Geographic Sea Lion, sister to the almost sold-out National Geographic Sea Bird—and a slate of additional departure dates on both of our 6-day Wild Alaska Escape itineraries. This should make it easier for you to get the ‘tonic of wildness’ in Alaska. 

 

Get there first and witness the advantages of springtime in Alaska! Plus enjoy exclusive savings. Limited space remains on all of our Alaska itineraries. 

This is what happens deep inside in Alaska where our nimble ships roam—join us this summer and witness the exhilarating wildness of Alaska.

Expedition Highlights

This is the Alaska of legend — to experience it you have to go deep. Venture into narrow fjords, where virgin rock that has never before been seen or touched by humans is now being exposed by receding glaciers. Go into remote bays to linger and observe whales going about the slow business of their daily lives. Walk through temperate rainforests on trails worn into the spongy earth by foraging bears. Venture into small towns, populated by hardy, friendly souls, to discover the way life has been lived in Alaska for centuries. Meet First Nations people in mutually rewarding encounters and learn their traditions and ways of life. Plus, sail aboard U.S.-built and -flagged ships to minimize time-consuming protocols to clear customs and maximize time exploring.
