Typical Juneau Charter Itinerary
An Alaska vacation adventure! Experience the best of Alaska’s Inside Passage from your private motor yacht.
Day 1: Board about 11:00 AM and leave about noon to travel to Pavlof Harbor for the night. As we go by, we look for whales which are often seen off Shelter Island or Pt. Augusta. In the evening anchor off the waterfall, maybe set out a crab pot or two and look for grizzlies on the beach or fishing below the falls.
Day 2: Move on down Chatham Straights to Takatz Bay with a stop to explore Basket Bay along
Day 3: Have a leisurely morning and explore the bay with our kayaks. Leave by late morning, pick up our pots, and head for Warm Springs Bay. At Warm Springs, look for a spot on the small dock or anchor up in one of the isolated coves in the bay and hike up to the lake and the waterfall and have a great soak in the hot tubs or pools. By mid afternoon head for the peace and isolation of Red Bluff Bay. Explore the great waterfalls in Red Bluff & drop some more shrimp pots. Possibly explore the creek and keep a sharp lookout for bears in the creek and the meadows.
Day 4: Travel to one of our favorite, isolated bays in western Frederick Sound. Depending on the weather, we might try trolling for some salmon off Kingsmill Pt. along the way. Look for whales bubble netting. Check out the Sea Otter colony in Security Bay. Tonight our anchorage will be very sheltered and a good time to kayak or take the tenders to explore the shoreline.
Day 5: Leave fairly early and travel through Frederick Sound and Stevens Passage to Ice
Day 6: Explore Tracy Arm or Endicott, depending on prevailing winds and ice conditions. Visit glaciers
Day 7: Enjoy a liesurly morning brunch as we travel to Juneau arriving about noon, in time for the afternoon jet to Seattle.
