Trip Profile
*Remember: wildlife is wild life, so when it comes to stuff like whales and bears, these ratings show the likelihood of seeing those things as opposed to a guarantee. But that’s nature for ya – and who would want it any other way?
Endicott Arm, Admiralty Island, Fredrick Sound
This trip begins with the bustling Alaskan Capital of Juneau, from which we will travel south in Stevens Passage toward Holkam Bay. Once there, we will explore the icy fjords of Endicott Arm, where we have the opportunity to float and kayak among huge icebergs and watch a tidewater glacier calve into the ocean. Described by some as impressive as Glacier Bay, Endicott Arm offers one of the most stunning glacial landscapes in Southeast Alaska – sheer granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and thundering glaciers.

From Holkam bay we will continue south in Stevens Passage, around the southern tip of Admiralty Island, where our passage enters into Fredrick Sound. Here, the water teems with food that attracts a large variety of marine mammals – most notably, Humpback Whales. We will spend hours floating in solitude, watching and listening to the sights and sounds of the creatures that ply these waters all summer long. From our floating home, we will explore the convoluted coastline of Southeast Alaska. We will hike deep into the forest to waterfalls, rivers, and beautiful old-growth tree stands.
Evenings will bring us to secluded anchorages where we will have time to relax and reflect on the day’s activities. Most nights, we will have kayaks in the water – available to any who wish to explore in solitude the beautiful shoreline of Alaska. Our final days, depending on the tide, we enable us to hike one last time to the face of a grounded glacier – a glacier which has receded from the coastline up into a rocky valley. Our trip ends in the colorful town of Petersburg – known as the “Little Norway” of Alaska, where you will be able to explore yet another friendly Alaskan metropolis.
