Summer Yacht Cruises in Glacier Bay
Glacier Bay Inside Passage 5-Day 5-Night Yacht Cruises
Glacier Bay was a great river of ice when John Muir explored it only a century ago. Now the bay is a water-filled fjord with glaciers falling out of the mountains. This awesome landscape of fjords, glaciers, and towering mountains is simply glorious, and we’ll feel as if we have it all to ourselves as we anchor in hidden coves, hike near massive tidewater glaciers, and kayak through pristine waters.
A hike or paddle near the world’s most famous glaciers will touch you for life – experiences you will never forget! The wildlife is as spectacular as the scenery, with stellar sea lions congregating on rocky islands, harbor porpoise feeding along the shores, and bald eagles peering down at us from ancient spruce trees. It is not uncommon for us to see Whales – most commonly Humpback, but also Orca if you are lucky, Sea Otter, Seals and yes, BEARS!
After each day’s adventures, we return to the comfort of one of our custom-built yachts, watching for wildlife from the decks during the long Alaskan twilight.
Let’s Cruise the Inside Passage and Glacier Bay National Park! Design your own itinerary that includes freshwater fishing for 4 species of Pacific Salmon and Arctic Char, Ocean fishing for huge Halibut and 5 species of Pacific Salmon, Kayaking among the ice floes near the face of a tidewater glacier, and cruising the beaches of Glacier Bay National Park where wildlife is abundant, and Tidewater glaciers spectacular. The Inside Passage has no ocean swell. This is a great Family Adventure or a Grand Escape for couples.
Enjoy Luxury Sport Fishing in Southeast Alaska
Luxury Sport Fishing with Alaska Glacier Guides is the ONLY way to fish – Warm, Dry, and Comfortable!! Don’t be caught out for the day on a small, cramped Sport-fisher with no heat, no place to sit, and only a ‘port-a-potty’ for your day on the water. Come enjoy an elegantly finished 30′ Armstrong Catamaran for YOUR Alaskan experience. Comfortable seating for 6 guests inside the cabin, accommodated in both bench seating and a large settee. There is a full stand-up head with electric flush toilet, as well as twin- burner stove that allows for a quick hot beverage on board if desired.
If you’d like, bring along a non-fishing companion – theirs is a warm, dry, and comfortable place to enjoy the day. We’ll probably even enjoy a world-class Whale ‘show’ and take delight in sea lion and sea otter sightings – not to mention a myriad of sea birds and numerous Bald Eagles. Fish for giant Pacific Halibut, set the hook on an aggressive Salmon, or jig for a myriad of tasty Rockfish! We will troll or jig for salmon, and jig near the bottom for huge halibut and rockfish. We have all the saltwater fishing gear and bait, all you need is the arm strength to bring in the fish!BOOK YOUR FISHING TRIP NOW FISHING EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST
