Glacier Southbound Cruises

Uncover the mystery and majesty of Alaska by traveling the last great frontier the way it was meant to be explored, with a Glacier Southbound cruise! Take in the famous historic towns that make Alaska so unique, experience the Native culture and heritage, and relive the Gold Rush past that has helped shape present day Alaska!

A Glacier Southbound cruise commonly embarks from Alaska's famous cities, such as Whittier and Seward. While in Whittier, enjoy fresh seafood at one of the dining venues in town, or go kayaking along a rumbling waterfall. Take a deep breath and adapt to the slower tempo of Alaska, because your journey into the Land of the Midnight Sun is about to begin! Step away from the stress of everyday life and rediscover nature in its purest form.

Catch an authentic lumberjack show, discover the legends and heritage behind the totem poles that artistically dot cities in Alaska, take a glimpse into the life of a black bear, sail alongside humpback whales, and experience the trajectory of the fjords that are protected by regal glaciers and mountains! You can also retrace the history of the Klondike Gold Rush on a train that takes you through the White Pass and Yukon Route, where aside from the scenery you can enjoy views of pure natural settings of wildlife. If heights aren’t a problem for you, then take a helicopter ride above Mendenhall Glacier or Glacier Bay National Park, it promises to be a breathtakingly awe-inspiring experience!

Hubbard Glacier is one of the greatest highlights of cruising through the Inside Passage. If your Alaska cruise sails through the Inside Passage it is guaranteed to be a defining moment of your remarkable voyage! Imagine sailing through the Inside Passage as the sun reflects off glaciers and suddenly you hear a loud sound as the aqua blue ice separates from the glacier and crashes into the water that turns into an odd hue of green! It's one thing to imagine, but if you witness it up close on your Glacier Southbound cruise you'll be captivated with wonder!

A Glacier Southbound cruise will take you on a journey through the Great Land that is bound to be memorable, inspiring, mesmerizing, and truly unique! There's nothing like discovering Mother Nature’s handy work in person, and an Glacier Southbound cruise can help you unearth the true natural beauty and spirit of this vastly unspoiled region!
