August and September are phenomenal months to visit Alaska and we have a few remarkable deals with over $2,000 off the usual price on last minute sailings aboard some of our vessels.
Here is the itinerary for a typical day aboard on of our vessels:
Salisbury Sound & Stergis Narrows: Not far from the night’s anchorage is a popular saltwater sportfishing area, Salisbury Sound, where an all-morning salmon trolling trip aboard one of the ship’s sturdy skiffs may be of interest to the angling enthusiast. Halibut are common hereabouts, as well. Guests can take fish home at the end of a trip. Crew can custom-process your catch, vacuum pack and freeze it on board, and advise you on the best methods for shipment.
Alternatively, the ship’s Chef is happy to prepare your catch for dinner and share recipes. If fishing doesn’t interest you, join in a skiff tour along the rocky shoreline to spot sea otters in the company of an on-board naturalist who will share insights into the natural history of this region. We are in the heart of a coastal Alaskan Wilderness so we’ll keep a lookout for brown bears, often seen grazing on lush beach grasses throughout summer… easy to spot from a skiff. By lunchtime, we return to the ship to haul anchor and head through Sergius Narrows into Peril Strait. We cruise until dinnertime, when we find ourselves anchored in Saook Bay, another scenic Southeast Alaska harbor. After dinner, your crew can launch kayaks and you may paddle quietly around the anchorage savoring the wonder of your first full day in the wilds of Alaska.
