We recently enjoyed an Alaska adventure, including a sea voyage through the Inside Passage, followed by a land tour (I'm saving that for my next blog!)
Sea kayaking near Ketchikan
The cruise part was on the Norwegian Cruise Line ship Jewel. As a smaller boat, it can navigate the Inside Passage, the narrow waterway between islands and the mainland of Alaska and British Columbia.

It was a great opportunity to see all of the wildlife in the ocean, do sea kayaking, take a flight on a sea plane over the glaciers, visit the mining towns, and relax on the boat.
Skagway is known for its colorful businesses and its very colorful past
The itinerary used specific tour guides and companies at locations along the way; if you take a cruise like this, you may meet some of the same suppliers. I hope you enjoy these pictures of the activities and sights!
Because of its small size, our ship was able to get up close to the amazing Dawes Glacier, and into the rainbowed Endicott Arm
