One of the best things about traveling with Great Alaska is your guide will drive you back to the lodge after your activities for Happy Hour, a fine dinner, riverside fire and fishing, and your own comfortable bed. You do not need to repack every day to travel to a new destination.
After a great lodge breakfast just hop in our van and we'll take you there for a your choice of guided activities. Seward, the jumping off point, is just 130 miles from Anchorage. The port is a turnaround for cruise ships, so you can take an Alaska cruise and we will pick you up in Seward to start your land-based trip with us.
It can be cold and sometimes rainy when you're right next to the glaciers watching whales. It's a good thing we have heavy 2-piece raingear you can use, underneath your jacket or sweater.
On any trip you may see Humpback, Fin or Grey whales, orca (killer whales), Dalls porpoise, Stellar Sea Lion, harbor seals, puffins (tufted & horned) and other sea birds, bald eagles, mountain goats, and maybe even you'll spot a moose on the way there.
