Alaskan Dream Cruises is launching a new itinerary for the 2018 season, “Alaska’s Spring Wilderness & Wildlife Safari," and is introducing two special departures of its “Alaska’s Glacier Bay & Island Adventure,” according to a prepared statement.
The five-night “Alaska’s Spring Wilderness & Wildlife Safari” will be sailing round-trip out of Sitka. With five departures on the 10-passenger Misty Fjord, the expedition explores the Sitka Sound area. A local captain and onboard naturalist will choose the best activities each day ,the company said.
