Description

Reviews

Explore a wildlife rich slice of Alaska, set in the scenic wilderness settings of Lake Clark National Park, and the Chugach National Forest Wilderness of Prince William Sound. Get off the beaten path and experience unparalleled photographic and wildlife viewing opportunities, while part of a small group.

Begin the journey with an exploration of the remote corners of Prince William Sound on a five-day voyage, observing wildlife such as black bear, sea otters, harbor seals, whales, sea lions and puffins, amidst a spectacular blend of mountain, forest, and glacial scenery.

Next take a scenic bush flight to one of the most remote and road less national Parks in Alaska; Lake Clark. Stay in a comfortable lodge for 3 days of intimate bear viewing, where you are on the ground with coastal brown bears as they feed, nurse, mate and play in the lush green, flower filled meadows. Due to their high-protein salmon diet, coastal brown bears are significantly larger than the interior grizzly bears.

Most of the time spent here will be observing and photographing the phenomenal bear activity, sometimes even from the deck of your cabin. There is also an option to take a fishing charter for halibut or salmon!

This was the trip of a lifetime

This was the trip of a lifetime. Not hyperbole, just truth. Every single staff person was amazing. Captain Dean not only piloted expertly, he was a fountain of information. Tori and Ashley were wonderful on all outings, sharing knowledge while still always making sure everyone of us were comfortable physically. Finally, Meg. Hmm, not enough words for her mastery in the kitchen. Thank you all for your expertise and care.

We had a great experience

Great activities for those who want to see natural Alaska up close. Crew was very knowledgeable friendly and helpful. Every meal was creative and a wonderful experience.

Fantastic trip

Fantastic trip! Loved the adventure, crew was great. I’d call this a once in a lifetime trip, but it was so much fun we’ll try to do it again.

Trip of a lifetime.

Trip of a lifetime. Dean and Meg were amazing hosts. We saw fantastic wildlife and nature. I highly recommend this voyage.

Just Go

Wonderful and up close Alaska. The activities are unique with the best hikes and kayaking. The food is also plentiful and amazing. Great crew too.

An amazing experience.

The whole experience was unforgettable. The crew were knowledgeable, informative and very friendly.

Our group of 7 had a fantastic time on…

Our group of 7 had a fantastic time on Discovery’s Classic Voyage over 5 glorious days last June. Dean and Meg were very welcoming as was their capable crew and all were so knowledgable about the geography, flora and fauna which really enriched all our shore excursions. Thanks to Meg and the girls, every meal was a dining experience in itself and Meg should be congratulated on her moves in the Cha-Cha line which circumnavigated the deck. Our favourite sing-a-long was of course, given the surrounds, Running Bear…we had a daily fix to prevent any music withdrawals.
PS Ask Dean and the girls to show you their Jump-Shot prowess but the absolute winner was the Run-Around Pano…don’t miss it !!!!

Bucket list adventure.

What an amazing adventure! The knowledgeable crew provided a plethora of fascinating information. We tucked away in quite coves, hiked, kayaked and tried our balance on a growler.
The food was excellent and plentiful. Top shelf spirits were available. This crew has client satisfaction down to science. I would recommend this trip for anyone who wants to Alaska at its finest.
