Small ship guests would rather watch for
whales in Frederick Sound than spend the afternoon in a casino. They linger
outside on deck as the Captain noses under a waterfall, rather than watch a

calving spectacularly, or to seek out sea otters when a nearby fisherman radios

visitor. You are a participant. Whether kayaking next to a glacier, hiking in a
rain forest in Alaska, or enjoying a spectacular spring garden in British
Columbia, a small-ship cruise is an engaging experience for all the senses.
