See Alaska as never before: Alaska inside passage cruisesWritten by Ron Richards
Between Alaskan mainland and its islands, lies an intriguing waterway best known as inside passage. Abundant in wildlife and breathtaking beauty, inside passage affords visitors an experience that cannot be found anywhere in Alaska or in world.
From waterway of passage, one can look upon some of most magnificent natural scenery to be found such as coastal rainforests, deep blue fjords and tidewater glaciers. Also to be found in passage are numerous species of wildlife including humpback whales, sea lions and seabirds. Because of awe-inspiring beauty of passage and since many destinations along Alaska inside passage are only accessible by plane or boat, inside passage cruises have become one of most popular tourist attractions of state.
Few people have visited Alaska without experiencing once in a lifetime moments. Towering tidewater glaciers offer natural beauty that usually is only fully appreciated with an up close and personal view that only a cruise through inland waterways can afford. From this vantage point you will stand in awe of these mighty glaciers that reach several hundred feet in height and enjoy plentiful wildlife viewing such as humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, mountain goats, brown bears and bald eagles. You will also be stricken speechless by sheer beauty of inside passage's botanical gardens, spectacular waterfalls, and Alaskan sunrise as seen from cruise ship.
