Alaska Dream Cruises

Explore Southeast Alaska aboard our most intimate offering, the 10-guest Misty Fjord expedition vessel. The Misty Fjord was custom designed for personalized, in-depth wilderness exploration. Guests experience complete immersion in the wild lands and waterways of Southeast Alaska on an exciting itinerary that can be customized to specific guest interests.

I love how Alaskan Dream supports small Southeast Alaska companies and people–all has been so great – a fabulous cruise!

Day-to-Day Itinerary

Day 1 — Sitka & Hoonah Sound

Explore beautiful Sitka, the only community in Southeast Alaska that faces the open ocean waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Visit fascinating sites that highlight the community's rich Alaska Native and Russian history. Embark for the winding narrows north of town while searching for sea otters, bears, whales, and other wildlife. Anchor for the evening in Hoonah Sound, a protected body of water in Peril Strait.

Day 2 — Baranof Island

Navigate the remote northeastern coast of Baranof Island. This region includes many intimate coves and inlets, making it ideal for exploration. Opportunities include Hidden Falls, Takatz Bay, and Cosmos Cove.

Day 3 — Tenakee Inlet

Enjoy kayak and skiff adventures in Tenakee Inlet. Stretch your legs as you beach comb or hike along the beautiful remote coastlines of the area.

Day 4 — Icy Strait & Port Frederick

Ply the waters of Icy Strait, an area known by locals for incredible humpback whale viewing. Later, relish the serenity of Port Frederick.

Day 5 — Taku Inlet

Awake to a thrilling morning hovercraft flight, where you'll soar over the shallow waters and shifting sandbars of Taku Inlet en route to the Taku Glacier, the largest glacier flowing from the Juneau Icefield. Afterwards, explore the wildlife-rich waters of Stephen's Passage

Day 6 — Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness

Journey through Tracy or Endicott Arm in the Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness, a place the famous naturalist, John Muir, referred to as, "A wild, unfinished Yosemite.” Renowned for its pristine waterfalls, towering icebergs, abundant harbor seals, and granite cliffs that rise from sea level to 4,000 feet, this wilderness is often referred to by locals as one of the most scenic areas in the state. Both of these dramatic glacial fjords offer stunning views of tidewater glaciers. Skiff excursions provide the opportunity to view the majesty of the area in even greater detail.

Day 7 — Frederick Sound

View entertaining Steller sea lions on their haul-out on Brothers Island while scouting for humpback whales in the world-renowned whale waters of Frederick Sound. Experience the thrill of viewing wildlife from the DIB. End the day in a remote, wilderness bay for kayaking, a relaxing beach fire, and a king crab feast. Options include Windham Bay, Hobart Bay, or Port Houghton.

Day 8 — Juneau

Disembark in Alaska's capital city of Juneau. Transfer to the airport or your hotel is complimentary.
