Everybody loves to cruise Alaska's "Inside Passage", but how would you like to take your house along for the ride? The Alaska Marine Highway System allows you to do just that. You can drive your RV right on board and stop wherever you want, and stay as long as you want! All the comforts of home are right there with you!
You get to visit all the beautiful sights along the way, but at your own pace. Our journey begins in Bellingham, Washington just north of Seattle. With the RV below deck you leave the driving to someone else so you can sit back and enjoy the scenery. We sail along Vancouver Island and enjoy the antics of the killer whales that are so common to the area. The remoteness of the British Columbia coast only enhances its world-class beauty.
Ketchikan is our first port of call in Alaska and a world-class kayaking destination. A kayak trip to Misty Fjords National Monument allows you to see this beautiful area from a different perspective. Wrangell is a small port town that allows you to enjoy the well preserved native history and get up close and personal to the black and brown bears feeding on salmon at world famous Anan Bear Observatory. Petersburg is known for commercial fishing and its Norwegian heritage.
The capital city of Juneau has great whale watching and a glacier right in town. Come along on an exciting helicopter trek on the ice fields above the city and view spectacular glacier calving in Tracy Arm. Sitka is known for it's Russian influence and great scenic beauty, while Haines is famous for the largest gathering of bald eagles in the world.
Our journey ends in Skagway with its gold mining history and a ride on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad, a highlight of any trip to Alaska. We also spend time talking to the local Alaska people, from natives to fishermen, and hear their stories about the last frontier. It's the spectacular scenery, incredible wildlife, adventure tours and interesting people that keep Alaska on everybody's "favorite place to visit" list. Come along for the ride!©2003 John Holod Productions
