Vancouver to Sitka Cruise Summary
Discover the innermost secrets of Alaska on guided kayak groups and zodiacs as you cruise between Vancouver and Sitka to isolated indigenous villages and pristine wilderness.
Led by our onboard expedition experts and researchers from the California Polytechnic State University Centre for Coastal & Marine Sciences, you will be able to gain a unique level of understanding and behind-the-scenes access to the most innovative scientific outposts in North America.
Explore the majestic Stikine River, where Tlingit totems stand silent sentry over the waters. Take a jet boat ride through the dramatic ice fields surrounding the LeConte Glacier. Look out for whales, orcas, sea lions, bears, wolves, moose and hundreds of species of sea and shorebirds in the company of our expert marine biologists.
When evening comes, relax and sip a cocktail as you take in the scenery from the observation lounge of our sleek, modern ship, Ocean Victory, where the wraparound windows and 360-degree swivel chairs are carefully designed to capture the best views from every angle.
