Offshore sailing cruise from Valdez in Prince William Sound, to Juneau in the Inside Passage, offering the experience of night sailing with a few stops, for an extraordinary discovery of the Gulf of Alaska while watching for whales and orcas in the wake of the sailboat.

Glaciers still resist in Glacier Bay National Park, crashing down their seracs. Exploration of a raw nature, following in the footsteps of the naturalist John Muir, who during several canoe expeditions made an inventory of it in 1879 and became the founder of the American National Parks.


A little sailing experience would be desirable but not mandatory (however, do not confuse the adaptation of the first days with recurring seasickness).

Our itinerary

Day 1: Boarding in Valdez

Boarding on Qilak in Valdez, approach a rockery of a hundred sea lions. Leaving Prince William Bay is magical!

Days 2 to 5: Crossing the Gulf of Alaska

Offshore navigation from Prince William Sound to Yacutat, with a night at sea and in the company of whales. The sumptuous mountains of Mont Saint Elias in the background, give this decor a grandiose dimension.

Day 6: Elfin Cove

Stopover at Elfin Cove "village at the end of the world", where a dozen fishermen live in this charming cove with houses full of flowers.

Days 7 to 9: Glacier Bay National Park

The surge of glaciers during the last "Little Ice Age" of the 18th century forced the Tlingit nation around 1750 to flee their land which they had inhabited for centuries. Anchorages and walks at the foot of some of the 16 glaciers, with the crash of impressive serac falls. The landscapes of this immense glacial valley are the delight of photographers.

Day 10: Disembarking in Juneau

Disembarkation in Juneau, capital of Alaska and living memory of the pioneers of the gold rush.

Note: The itinerary is reversed for the departure on June 9 (code G3), ie: boarding in Juneau / disembarking in Valdez.
