Your day-by-day details | Roundtrip Juneau, Alaska from $4900 to $11,900 per person

DAY 1 Juneau Embarkation


Board the Legacy just in time for a welcome cocktail or glass of champagne before dinner. The captain and crew will introduce themselves and provide an overview of the adventure that awaits this week! (D)

 

DAY 2 Robert & Crow Islands


It's a perfect day to start the adventure! After a warm filling breakfast, time to get out there. Take to the water in a skiff tour or take a kayak 101 class. Follow an experienced and engaging guide through a forest hike. This afternoon, take your place on the bow as the captain and crew take you on a whale watching cruise. (BLD)

 

DAY 3 LeConte Glacier & Ideal Cove


Today’s timing of activities is entirely controlled by the rise and fall of the tide. We may visit the Glacier early or late. LeConte Glacier is the southernmost tidewater glacier in the northern hemisphere. The shallow current-filled entrance requires us to enter near slack water. If the tide is early, you may hear ice against the hull of the Legacy as you wake up. We will also visit Ideal Cove today and take advantage of trails and if the timing is right, an evening campfire ashore.(BLD)

 

DAY 4 Cascade Creek & Baird Glacier


Wake near Cascade Creek in Thomas Bay. This bay is the quintessential playground for our guests and crew. Long flat hikes, steep elevation climbs, calm kayaking, and hikes to a glacial lake with the mighty Baird Glacier still calving ice into the lake may all be options today. Depending on tides, we may start the day near Cascade Creek or at Scenery Cove near Baird Glacier. Regardless, after lunch the boat will move to the opposite end of Thomas Bay for more adventures. This is an epic day for adventurers. Evening skiff tours and kayaks take in the pre dark hours when the sounds of the wilds beckon. (BLD)

 

DAY 5 Patterson & Gut Bay Wilderness


Join us for an early riser breakfast as we enter Patterson Bay! One of the most scenic areas in SE Alaska, Patterson is a deep narrow bay hemmed in mountains. We will drop off all day kayakers and early morning skiff tours and begin our day. Soon after, the ship will go on a slow meander of South Baranof Wilderness Area including Deep Cove, Port Walter, Misty Cove and eventually reach the southern extent of this primitive area. Activities will be more water-based today, with some hikes and whale watching. No other small ships visit this area. Weather permitting, this is an ideal area for snorkeling. Good chance to see Humpback or Orca whales. Alaska fishermen troll this area for prized King Salmon. Keep your camera at the ready today! (BLD)

 

DAY 6 Corner Bay  


Corner Bay is our playground for the day. Chichagof Island is known for its high population of Brown Bears with multiple trails and abandoned Forest Service roads that make for ease of hiking to lakes and rivers. Full range of activities will be available with a lean towards hiking and for some, biking. This is the best opportunity for long hikes on trails and old Forest Service roads. (BLD)

 

DAY 7 Glacier Bay Outback


Wake up this morning in the Glacier Bay National Park “Outback”. Today we will anchor in one of three outback areas of this epic national park. This will include one of the rarely visited areas of either Fern Harbor, Dundas Bay, or No Name Cove near Excursion Inlet. The entire day is set aside for activity, starting with early morning kayak and birding departures into the park. Full activities may include kayaking, paddle boarding, skiff excursions, hiking, beach strolls and more. The likelihood of seeing any vessels or other people is very low. Meals may be aboard the Wilderness Legacy or packed as a picnic. This evening enjoy the Captain’s Dinner and a slide show of the week’s adventures put together by your crew. (BLD)

 

DAY 8 Juneau Disembarkation


Welcome back to Juneau. Enjoy your last breakfast aboard. Check every nook and cranny of your cabin for all of your things and say farewell to the crew as we disembark. (B)
