It is hard to believe that a place as beautiful as Seward exists. Surrounded on all sides by Kenai Fjords National Park, Chugach National Forest, and Resurrection Bay, Seward offers all the quaint realities of a small railroad town with the bonus of jaw-dropping scenery. This little town of about 2,750 citizens was founded in 1903, when survey crews arrived at the ice-free port and began planning a railroad to the Interior. Since its inception, Seward has relied heavily on tourism and commercial fishing.

Cape St Elias is the southwest end of Kayak Island in the Gulf of Alaska. It is separated from the mainland by a channel 4 miles wide. The island, named by Lt. Sarichef of the Russian Navy in 1826 because its outline resembles the shape of an Eskimo skin canoe, is 20 miles long and only 2 miles wide and covered in dense rainforest. The cape itself was named by Russian explorer Vitus Bering on July 20, 1741 in honour of St. Elias, whose saint's day is July 20. The lighthouse, located at the southernmost tip, is a National Historic Landmark.
Icy Bay, located on the south eastern edge of the Gulf of Alaska, is a relatively new geographical feature that has formed within the past 100 years. As recently as the early 1900’s, the glacier front reached all the way to the Gulf of Alaska. However, the rapid retreat of the three major glaciers in the area (the Guyot, Yahtse, and Tyndall Glaciers) has resulted in the present-day bay, which is over 30 miles long. The surrounding scenery is stunning, with Mount Elias (at over 18,000 feet) towering high on the horizon.
Hubbard Glacier, off the coast of Yakutat, Alaska, is the largest glacier in North America, with a calving front that is more than six miles wide. One of the main sources for Hubbard Glacier originates 76 mi inland. It has been a very active glacier, experiencing two major surges in the past 30 years. This glacier was named after Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a U.S. lawyer, financier, and philanthropist. He was the first president of the National Geographic Society.
Elfin Cove sits snugly on the southern shore of Cross Sound, which leads in eastwards to the Inside Passage. Northwards and across the Sound from the small community lies Glacier Bay National Park and the Fairweather Mountain range. Elfin Cove is a quaint little harbor clustered with attractive timber houses built into the wooded hillsides on stilts. The population swells to about 200 during the summer months, from a rather meager 6 or so during the snowy and isolated winters.
During the evening Silver Explorer will be near Point Adolphus, a well-known area for whale watching. Enjoy an aperitif while you are on the outer decks, looking for humpback whales as well as orcas, or simply enjoying the landscape.
It's hard not to like Sitka, with its eclectic blend of Alaska Native, Russian, and American history and its dramatic and beautiful open-ocean setting. This is one of the best Inside Passage towns to explore on foot, with such sights as St. Michael's Cathedral, Sheldon Jackson Museum, Castle Hill, Sitka National Historical Park, and the Alaska Raptor Center topping the town's must-see list.

A small, unassuming timber and fishing community, Wrangell sits on the northern tip of Wrangell Island, near the mouth of the fast-flowing Stikine River—North America's largest undammed river. The Stikine plays a large role in the life of many Wrangell residents, including those who grew up homesteading on the islands that pepper the area. Trips on the river with local guides are highly recommended as they provide, basically, an insider's guide to the Stikine and a very Alaskan way of life. Like much of Southeast, Wrangell has suffered in recent years from a declining resource-based economy.

Separating Revillagigedo Island from the Alaskan mainland, the roughly 100 miles long Behm Canal is located within the Tongass National Forest. Already charted in 1793 by George Vancouver, the Behm Canal is the western border of Misty Fiords National Monument. Tongass National Forest extends over 16.9 million acres and is the largest wilderness area in Alaska’s forests and the second largest forest in the nation. It has been described as an almost untouched coastal ecosystem with outstanding geological features, and Misty Fiords National Monument is sometimes called “The Yosemite of the North”.
Rudyerd Bay is one of the highlights of the Misty Fiords, 40 miles east of Ketchikan, along the Inside Passage. This fjord cuts through steep-sided mountainous terrain and extends far into the mainland. The scenery is stunning, with dramatic thousand-foot waterfalls plunging down rainforest covered cliffs to the water below.
Since the late 19th century, Metlakatla has been the major settlement of the Metlakatla Indian Community of the federally recognized Annette Islands Reserve, the only remaining reservation in Alaska. It is located on Annette Island, and in 2010 had 1,405 residents. Membership in the community is primarily by lineage and is comprised primarily of Tsimshian people. Metlakatla comes from a Tsimshian word meaning "Salt Water Passage.
Just 40 mi (66 km) south of the Alaskan border, Prince Rupert is the largest community on British Columbia's north coast. Set on Kaien Island at the mouth of the Skeena River and surrounded by deep green fjords and coastal rain forest, Prince Rupert is rich in the culture of the Tsimshian, people who have been in the area for thousands of years. As the western terminus of Canada's second transcontinental railroad and blessed with a deep natural harbor, Prince Rupert was, at the time of its incorporation in 1910, poised to rival Vancouver as a center for trans-Pacific trade.

Alert Bay is a small village on Cormorant Island, with approximately 1,300 residents. More than half are First Nations people. The settlement was named in 1860 in honour of the Royal Navy ship HMS Alert, which conducted survey operations in the area. The traditional Kwakwaka’wakw people of Alert Bay have endured a difficult history of devastating foreign diseases and failed government policies of assimilation. Today there is a revival of their traditions.
Sailing through the Seymour Narrows is an exciting adventure. This five kilometer long passage is notorious for strong, turbulent tidal currents that can reach speeds of 15 knots and have dangerous conditions such as whirlpools and overfalls. For most of its length, the channel is only about 750 m wide. Captain George Vancouver, an English officer of the Royal Navy who explored this region of the northwestern North America Pacific Coast during his 1791–95 expedition, described the Seymour Narrows as "one of the vilest stretches of water in the world." 
Nanaimo is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, about 70.2 miles (113 kilometres) northwest of Victoria and 34.1 miles (55 kilometres) west of Vancouver. The 'Harbour City' of Nanaimo is separated by the Strait of Georgia, and linked to Vancouver via the Horseshoe Bay BC Ferries terminal in West Vancouver. As the site of the main ferry terminal, Nanaimo is the gateway to many other destinations both on the northern part of the island, such as Tofino, Comox Valley, Parksville, Campbell River, Port Alberni, and Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park.

Vancouver is a delicious juxtaposition of urban sophistication and on-your-doorstep wilderness adventure. The mountains and seascape make the city an outdoor playground for hiking, skiing, kayaking, cycling, and sailing—and so much more—while the cuisine and arts scenes are equally diverse, reflecting the makeup of Vancouver's ethnic (predominantly Asian) mosaic. Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world's most livable cities, and it's easy for visitors to see why. It's beautiful, it's outdoorsy, and there's a laidback West Coast vibe.

Nature lovers will delight not just in sweeping mountain and fjord views but also sightings of Bald Eagles, humpback whales, orca whales, Steller sea lions and harbor seals.

Voyage Highlights:

Kayak Island, Alaska, USA
Silver Cloud will approach Kayak Island, a historical landmark -as this was the only island in Alaska where Georg Steller landed during the Bering Expedition of 1740. Cape Elias has a few haul-outs of Steller sea lions on the flat rocks of the southern tip. Some of the island’s haul-outs are quite large, containing several huge males and their harems of females. On the water rafts of Short-tailed Shearwaters and Red-necked Phalaropes are not uncommon.

Hubbard Glacier, Alaska, USA
Cruise along Hubbard Glacier, off the coast of Yakutat, Alaska, the largest glacier in North America, with a calving front that is more than six miles wide. This glacier has been very active, with two major surges forward in 1986 and again in 2002.
Elfin Cove, Alaska, USA
Spend time in the small community of Elfin Cove, exploring this quaint little village and its scenic boardwalk. This community is known for its sports fishing opportunities, with Bald Eagles and hummingbirds frequenting the village.

Wrangell, Alaska, USA
The town of Wrangell, one of Alaska’s oldest towns, is on the northern tip of Wrangell Island. More than a dozen totem poles are scattered throughout town and one of the best collections of totem poles is found on Chief Shakes Island, a grassy islet in the middle of the boat harbor. Further proof of Wrangell having been visited and used by the Tlingit is Petroglyph Beach State Historic Park with more than 40 of the designs found along the shore just a few hundred meters north of the town.

Behm Canal and Misty Fjord, Alaska, USA
Silver Cloud will be cruising the Behm Canal which passes through the Misty Fiords National Monument to the east of Revillagigedo Island. There is a broad spectrum of wildlife to be seen during the day. The iconic Misty Fjord is within the Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the US with 17 million acres of protected land. This massive reserve holds the largest Pacific temperate rainforest.

Metlakatla, Alaska, USA
The Tsimshian are the indigenous people of Metlakatla, a small ocean-front community in southern Alaska. The settlement holds at least a dozen ornate and emblematic Totem Poles for which the Tsimshian are famous. The people here respect and pay homage to their ancestors with traditional dance performances and ceremonies at their longhouse, the community’s heart and soul.

Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada
Prince Rupert is known as the “City of Rainbows” and Canada’s “Gateway to the North”.
Prince Rupert’s port is the deepest natural harbour in North America and ice-free all year round, making it an ideal port for cargo between Asia and North America since it is connected to the Canadian Railway, too. In Prince Rupert tour the North Pacific Cannery, the longest running cannery in British Columbia (and now a museum) to better understand part of Prince Rupert’s economy. The North Pacific Historic Fishing Village is a National Historic Site and is the most complete cannery that remains of these remote villages that once dotted the West Coast.
