Inside Passage

star-5
65 Reviews

Extending from Washington’s Puget Sound, along the shores of British Columbia and into the Gulf of Alaska, the Inside Passage is a must-have experience when visiting Alaska. The waterway exists thanks to the many islands that reside between the North Pacific Ocean and Alaska’s coast. This allows for calmer waters, which is why many ferries and cruise ships choose to use it to transport travelers.

Featuring bays, beaches, peninsulas, fjords, snow-capped mountains, glaciers, rivers, coastal towns and over 1,000 islands, the passage is a photographer’s heaven, as well as a supremely scenic playground for adventure travelers, culture cravers and outdoor enthusiasts. There are a variety of experiences to be had along the way: visiting Native Alaskan heritage attractions; exploring Gold Rush history; glacier trekking; dog-sledding; spotting wildlife such as bald eagles, whales and bears; rainforest cycling and more. Kayaking through Glacier Bay National Park, home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of glaciers, is an extremely popular activity in the passage, which also resides in the center of the United States’ largest forest – the 17-million-acreTongass National Forest. You’ll be privy to the offerings of this natural attraction as well.

The city of Ketchikan is located along the Inside Passage on its southern tip, which means it often serves as the first stop for people visiting Alaska. Here it’s possible to visit the famous Misty Fjords National Monument, take part in traditional arts and crafts courses at the Saxman Native Village, view historic totem poles at the Totem Heritage Center, go salmon fishing and much more.

Private Boat, Kayak, & Hike Adventure

Private Boat, Kayak, & Hike Adventure

A recent guest did us the courtesy of defining the spirit of how we operate. "If you're reading this, you've probably had the same experience we have had with some mass-market tour operators. Their excursions often feel impersonal and over-rehearsed. Without hesitation I can tell you that Tim and Mary were the most genuine, most authentically engaging tour operators we have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. I think its because their enjoyment of boating and kayaking around the beautiful islands near Ketchikan is part of their core values. Its who they are, not who they are trying to be." We go out into the ocean and forest because it is what we love to do. We bring others because we have a passion for sharing the beautiful area we call home.
