This panorama is interrupted only by the sightings of whales and sea lions frolicking in the waters around you.

Day 4: Ketchikan, Cruise Ship

Ketchikan, the southernmost port on the Inside Passage, is referred to as the "Salmon Capital of the World". This region attracts many visitors with the lure of Tlingit totems. Indeed, the native presence in Ketchikan remains strongly interwoven in the culture and commerce of this town.

Consider an optional excursion to the Mendenhall Glacier, one of the world's most photographed glaciers.

Your ship enters the Lynn Canal, one of the world's deepest fjords, which connects Juneau and Skagway. See magnificent vistas of green forests filled with abundant wildlife.

Consider an optional shore excursion to the summit of the nearly 3,000-foot-high White Pass, a famous landmark on the Klondike Gold Rush Trail.
