Exciting, exhilarating, memorable -- welcome to Expedition Experiences by Seabourn. Zodiac, kayaking or hiking activities enable you to experience the wonders of nature up close; in-depth cultural, ethnographic and archaeological discoveries connect you to the human and natural history of Seabourn's world. Each Expedition is expertly planned, professionally operated, and escorted by skilled expedition staff.
The Expedition Team takes you by Zodiac to explore the Inian Islands and Cross Sound. The latter is one of the main gateways for humpback whales to enter the sheltered waters of Alaska. The Zodiac allows you to get close to all the highlights of this incredibly beautiful environment that is densely populated by all the wildlife you've come to see -- Steller sea lions, humpback whales, horned and tufted puffins, sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles and an abundance of other birdlife. There's no other way to reach this area other than by sea, so make the most of this unusual and rewarding experience.
