Alaska Cruise Excursions

All of our excursions are included in your trip price.

Many cruise lines will make you pick an activity for your trip and charge you if you want to experience more. We want our guests to have new and fantastic experiences; and that is why we are called Custom Alaska Cruises.

All of our excursions are included in your trip price. There isn’t an extra charge to play more, fish more, kayak more, or just sit on the deck and watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

Thunderous waterfalls can be viewed as they pound their way straight into the sea-enveloping the boat in a fog of mist-or on the shore when we stop to hike inland.
