Alaska Cruises

Alaskan cruises are a dream for many… the most famous cruise boarding points are Vancouver, Seattle, and San Francisco.

An enjoyable cruise revolves around a cruise in the ocean and a land tour when you get to Alaska.

A nature tour in Alaska can be taken as a reunion with nature at its original state. The Vancouver boarding is usually the best since it gives you a chance to watch marine wildlife. Just 100 kilometers from the beach, you can watch different types of whales swimming on the water surface. The large sea mammals swim in groups. The most common types of whales are the grey, the killer, and the Mink whales. Most of the Alaskan cruises have marine biologists who provide knowledgeable discussions of the sea mammals. In addition to the whales, you also enjoy watching other sea creatures like sea lions in the clear waters and above the cruise ship, the sea birds hum and chirp sweet tunes en route to Alaska.
