Wildlife and Whale Watching Cruise
The Juneau and Chilkat icefields rim the shorelines between the port cities of Skagway, Juneau and Haines Alaska. Glacial nutrients kick start the food chain in these waters. This summer bloom provides for concentrating marine life on your route through the deep fjord of Lynn Canal. For many, drifting and quietly observing humpback whale behavior will be a highlight of the voyage. Keep a camera handy as we quickly navigate the shorelines of these fertile waters and watch for wildlife.
Depart Skagway and Haines in the morning and head south through Lynn Canal, the continent’s longest and deepest glacial fjord. Lynn Canal stretches over 100 miles long and is over 2000 feet deep. We will see many hanging glaciers high on the mountainside and cascading waterfalls on our route.
Marine life abounds in these waters, and a fully-narrated wildlife and whale watching cruise will highlight our morning voyage. You’ll see hanging glaciers, nesting bald eagles, harbor seals, and humpback or killer whales. We’ll stop at a rookery where hundreds of Steller sea lions gather in the summer to breed and pup.
