There are five different species of salmon that return to the waters of Southeast Alaska each year. May and June are the best months for hooking a King salmon, while July through September are best for Coho or Silver salmon.
Whales and Wildlife
The abundance of Alaska's Wildlife is staggering. Close viewing of humpback whales is almost a daily event during our cruises.
Southeast Alaska, known on the old British Admiralty Charts as the Alexander Archipelago, is a seemingly endless labyrinth of channels, passages, fjords, bays and straits extending 350 nautical miles north from Ketchikan to Skagway.
Casual clothing is the norm both on the boat as well as in towns, even in some of the better restaurants. Staying warm, dry and comfortable allows you to maximize the enjoyment of your experience. Layering for warmth is the best approach. If you plan to be outside in windy or rainy conditions, we recommend a long sleeve shirt, sweater and waterproof (not water-resistant) windbreaker and rain pants.
