Experience the trip of a lifetime on board the Safari Endeavour as you cruise Alaska's Inside Passage, an area of dramatic fjordland rich with jaw-dropping scenery and a variety of wildlife from whales to otters and eagles to seals. Itineraries on board begin either in Seattle or Juneau and range between seven and twelve nights.

Follow in the footsteps of explorer and conservationist John Muir and discover the regions of Alaska which inspired his own journeys, exploring the spectacular Glacier Bay National Park where you can enjoy forest hiking and up close visits to many of the region's most impressive glaciers. Come face to face with abundant birdlife and wildlife on a series of adventures both on land and on the water, making use of the on board equipment which includes kayaks, paddleboards, inflatable skiffs, snorkeling equipment, a hydrophone for listening to below-surface sounds and a bow-mounted underwater camera so you need never miss a moment. Observe huge humpback whales, playful sea otters and adorable sea lions in the water around you, all the while watching out for bears on the shore and eagles soaring overhead.

The ship accommodates 84 guests and cabins are spacious and well-equipped, all sitting above the water and boasting either a window or porthole. When it comes to relaxation, there are two hot tubs up on the deck which allow guests to make the most of the breathtaking scenery, as well as a massage suite, yoga mats and fitness equipment.
