This private, guided, vessel-based sightseeing tour with all meals included is a great way to do something different. Alaska is a very large state with mostly no trail systems in place. The best way to explore and appreciate these National Parklands is by sea. One does not need to be worried about sea sickness on Prince William Sound, these are relatively calm waters.
During these trips expect to see booming glaciers and an abundance of marine and animal life including: whales, sea lions, seals, eagles, mountain goats, Black Bears and possibly the small percentage of Brown Bears that inhabit the area.
The mountains hold an endless number of salmon streams, where one can view the fish in their final right of passage. Nearly all mountain streams hold large amounts of gold waiting to be panned.
The short drive to Prince William Sound allows the visitor to see the wonders of inland Alaska as well without driving for many hours.
