Discover Southeast Alaska

June 23June 30
| Cost: $2995 |

With expert naturalists, experience Alaska up close as you watch for wildlife and learn about the indigenous peoples of the region. Visit Glacier Bay National Park with a Native Huna Tlingit Interpreter. With comfortable staterooms, excellent cuisine and lectures onboard, the 143-foot Admiralty Dream ship was designed to go where large ships cannot—offering best views possible of the surrounding nature-filled landscape. Optional extension to Denali National Park.

Information sessions: Tuesday, January 17 at 11:30 am at the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts or 5 pm at Glenmeadow Retirement Community, Longmeadow.

Highlights:

  • See the spray of whales only yards away and venture into secluded inlets as you get up close to nature, whether from the decks of the Admiralty Dream, or aboard its skiffs and kayaks.
  • Accompanied by an Orbridge Expedition Leader and two expert naturalists, learn surprising details about animal behavior, glacier activity, and the wealth of natural spectacles along these protected waters.
  • Learn about Alaska’s culture and living history from a Native Tlingit Cultural Heritage Guide at Glacier Bay National Park, visits to Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, a salmon hatchery, and the Alaska State Museum, and a guided tour of the Norwegian fishing community of Petersburg.
  • Joined by a Park Ranger, cruise the pristine waters of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve to see the sanctuary’s deep fjords, tidewater glaciers, and snow-capped mountain ranges.
