Alaska offers variety of environments that encompass 600 million acres and more than 6,000 miles of coastline. That’s more coastline than in the entire continental United States. It would take a life time to thoroughly investigate her shores, but we invite you try.
• Southeast Alaska: includes the state's capital, Juneau, in addition to Ketchikan, Metlakatla, Prince of Wales Island, Wrangell, Petersburg, Sitka, Skagway, Haines, Glacier Bay National Park, and the Tongass National Forest. Southeast Alaska provides the unique opportunity to visit isolated communities in the calm channels of the Inside Passage. The only way to visit the majority of these communities is by boat or plane. Sport fishing, sight-seeing, whale watching, kayaking, and glacier viewing are high points in these secluded waters.
• Central Alaska: is also known as Prince William Sound and includes the Copper River Delta, Cordova, Valdez, Chenega Bay, Whittier, Seward, Homer, Kenai Fjords National Park, and Chugach National Forest. The 3,000 miles of shoreline in Prince William Sound is surrounded by the Chugach Mountains to the east, west and north. This mountain range is home to over 20 tidewater glaciers in addition to its many hanging and land bound glaciers. Islands beyond the fjords form natural breakwaters between the Sound and the Gulf of Alaska. This area offers opportunities to kayak, view whales and wildlife, fish, and get up close to glaciers.
• Western Alaska: offers the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge in Bristol Bay. This unique wildlife refuge offers a total of 295 wildlife species; including 214 bird species, 31 terrestrial mammal species, 17 marine mammal species, and 33 fish species. Its remote location provides the ideal breeding and resting grounds for many migratory birds.
• Seattle to Alaska: takes you through the original Inside Passage. The Inside Passage is home to Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Indians whose history is reflected in totem poles and other specific arts. The Sitka National Historic Park commemorates one of the last battles between Alaska Natives and European settlers. It is an ideal place to view both totems and the last examples of Russian colonial architecture in North America. The Canadian communities of Vancouver, Bella Bella and Prince Rupert are also ports of call on this journey.
• National Parks: within Alaska include Denali National Park , Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve, Glacier Bay National Park, Katmai National Park , Kenai Fjords National Park, Kobuk Valley National Park , Lake Clark National Park , and Wrangell-Saint Elias National Park.
