A Spectacular Day Cruise Package through the Legendary Waters of Lynn Canal. World-Class Tour Boat, Whale Watching, Superior Scenery and Wildlife Viewing.
One of the best ways to discover the mighty fjords of Southwest Alaska is with Alaska Fjordlines.
Depart Skagway and Haines in the morning and head south through Lynn Canal, North America’s longest and deepest glacial fjord. Traveled through the centuries by trappers and traders, gold rush stampeders, and modern day adventurers, these waters are rich in both human and natural history. Sailing in the shadow of the Coast Range, view hanging glaciers and historic Eldred Rock lighthouse. Wildlife abounds here; watch bald eagles, harbour seals, porpoise, orcas and humpback whales. Stop at a rookery where Steller sea lions gather in the summer months to breed and pup.
Upon arrival in Juneau, board Alaska Fjordline’s comfortable motor coach for a tour of Juneau’s highlights. See Alaska’s state capitol, the governor’s mansion and downtown Juneau. Spend your afternoon having lunch, shopping and exploring. You will be provided with a walking tour map to orient you to Juneau’s downtown attractions such as Mt. Roberts Tram, Red Dog Saloon, Alaska State Museum, House of Wickersham, St. Nicholas Russian Church and the new Sea Walk to view the life-size humpback whale statue. The bus meets you downtown for an optional tour to the DIPAC Salmon Hatchery before returning you to the boat. Savor a hearty bowl of smoked salmon chowder while you sail north, en route to Skagway and Haines.
The 65-foot, state-of-the-art, MV Fjordland is specially designed for the waters of Lynn Canal. The Fjordland offers comfortable, indoor seating with 360-degree views.
