Day Cruises Captain's Log

Our captains are the best of the best—knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly. During every cruise, they keep a log of the different wildlife sighted, the weather conditions, and glacier activity—and offer a special highlight from the trip that stood out as a great experience for the passengers and crew. This feature is a little bit of an insight into those sightings and special moments.
