What people are saying about Anchorage

An absolute highlight of our Alaskan trip. The captain and team were genuinely enthusiastic and made a real effort to spot and stop at all the wildlife and stunning scenery spots. We saw more on this trip than we have done on our travels over the last 3 weeks.

We enjoyed the cruise saw a lot of animals like whales sea lions and sea otters. The icing on the cake was the active glacier and it was mesmerizing. The breakage of the glacier was so beautiful and was totally worth every moment.
