Bears, puffins, sea lions, whales, glaciers and some of the most spectacular scenery in all the world. Come join us on this exploration of the beauty of Alaska's land and seaways.
Want to photograph grizzly bear - from less than 100 feet away? See cubs at play - with their moms and with each other? See whales up close and personal? Glaciers calving? See these and more on our Alaska Land and Sea Tour. We've held this tour in 2014, 2015 and 2017 - all sell-outs resulting in some being turned away. All accomodations are first rate.
