Glacier Bay is the heart of Alaska’s glacier fjords. It has numerous snow-capped mountains, various species of whales and the Eskimo kayaks. One of the most spectacular landscapes is the active glaciers in the Gulf. Tourists generally need not go ashore, standing on the deck they could watch the amazing calving of the glaciers where great chunks of ice break loose and crash into the sea.
Capital of Alaska – Juneau
When cruising at sea, we can’t guarantee the sighting of whales due to factors like weather and climate. However, in Juneau, you can definitely watch humpback whales, killer whales, sea lions, porpoises, harbour seals, bald eagles and Alaskan salmon.
Ketchikan is a colourful town with beautiful landscapes. The Totem Bight State Historic Park is one of the famous attractions of Ketchikan which has a large collection of native totem poles. Built above the waters along the Ketchiken Creek is the must-visit Creek Street which is a few hundred metres of antique boardwalks with restaurants, curio shops and private dwellings.
