Inside Passage, San Juan Islands to SE Alaska
Prevost Harbor to Juneau | May 10 to June 23 | Maximum 5 boats

Glaciers. Icebergs. Whales. Bears. Cruising to Alaska is all about the incomparable nature right in front of your eyes. It's about not just seeing the world, but experiencing it. This year we are doing an extended six-week trip, exploring coastal British Columbia with an extended tour of the highlights of SE Alaska.

Bring your boat and your spirit of adventure and cruise with the Slowboat team on a trip of a lifetime exploring one of the most amazing cruising grounds on earth - up the Inside Passage to SE Alaska.

Six weeks on the Inside Passage! We'll visit sandy beaches, ghost towns, fjords, tidewater glaciers, and more!

Every day gets better! As we travel north, structures on shore vanish, boat traffic diminishes, topography grows steeper and taller, and wildlife encounters become more frequent. We'll visit highlights along the entire route, from the quaint town of Ganges the first night to majestic Ford's Terror at the end. Along the way you'll become an expert at operating your boat and navigating the intricacies of the Inside Passage.

We'll meet in the San Juan Islands on May 10, and head into Canada on May 11, making our way north through British Columbia, around Cape Caution, through the isolated and amazing northern BC coast, and then across Dixon Entrance into Alaska.
