An Alaska travel vacation | see Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard the Midnight SunAn opportunity to experience nature with virtually no sign of civilization. Beautiful snowcapped mountain panoramas surrounding you with 13,000 miles of remote coastline dotted with over 1,000 islands. Dramatic glacial waterfalls abound among the Fjords with huge glaciers curving down through the mountains to the sea. Rugged and remote it provides an increasingly rare look at the beauty of unpopulated wilderness.
Wildlife is most abundant. Humpback, Orca (Killer) and Minke whales performing right off the bow and at times completely surrounding you as we drift among them. Black and grizzly bears meander along the beaches and can be viewed up close when fishing for Salmon. Eagles, sea otters, fur seals and sea lions are very abundant as are millions of sea birds including Terns, Puffins, Guillemots, and Murrelets.

Visit small communities and experience the whys and how’s of living in the wilderness. Visit the historical Russian settlement at Sitka. See totem poles. Take the tenders to the face of a huge glacier and watch it calve new icebergs into the sea around you. Take a flight-see from a float plane that arrives and departs from the stern of the yacht. Relax on deck in the late evening hours with the glow of the midnight sun and listen to the silence. Here, nature is the major attraction.
An Alaska travel vacation aboard the Midnight Sun. See Alaska wildlife from your private charter cruise. June, July and August are usually the warmest months. Average temperatures are 65 – 70 degree daily highs and 50 degree lows. May is also a great month to travel, while the temperature is a bit cooler, the chance of rain is less than at any other time. May and early June have the best chance for sunny days and the winter snowpack is still deep on all the mountaintops. The waterfalls are at their most gorgeous at this time of year and the yachts cruising up from down south are not yet here! Mild weather and calm seas prevail in the protected waters of Alaska’s Inside Passage.
