These are serene waters, where one moment you can be sailing a wide bay of barrier islands and the next you’re cruising through a narrow waterway flanked by towering forested walls. That’s the splendid spectacle of the Inside Passage — the scenery is constantly changing, from picturesque shores to friendly coastal towns.
Stretching from Puget Sound, Washington, through the British Columbia coast and into the Gulf of Alaska, the Inside Passage includes more than 1,000 islands, seemingly endless shore line and thousands of idyllic coves and bays.
Sailing with Princess on an Alaska Inside Passage cruise from Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles or between Whittier and Vancouver, you’ll marvel at the breathtaking scenery and encounter ports like Gold Rush-era Skagway and Ketchikan, the capital city of Juneau and British-flavored Victoria.
These are places where you can visit a Native village, learn about the triumphs and tragedies of Alaska’s Gold Rush heyday or go dog sledding with a real musher. The Inside Passage has stories to tell that will give you a greater understanding of the culture, history and lifestyle of the Great Land.
