Discover Southeast Alaska

What Guests Are Saying...

“Orbridge guest services provided personal help, coordination, correspondence/communication (both phone and email), and arrival/departure support from our very first contact and reservation as well as in the several months prior to our departure.

Our "Welcome Reception" was fun and informative, and neatly set the stage for all of us to meet new friends in the days and experiences to come! Our expedition leader's warm personality, National Park Service field work, years of natural science and resources background as well as extensive outdoor experiences across the United States, and wonderful good humor and laugh -- all contributed to our trip and travel of a lifetime!

The Denali Pre-Tour combined with the Discover SE Alaska program overall experience has been very simply a trip and travel experience of a lifetime for us both. We'll cherish the care and completeness of the Orbridge educational itinerary, lodging, and, most of all, each of the Expedition Leader staff members.”
–Diane & Tom E., Traverse City, MI
“The program was very valuable in covering the nature experiences from the scenery, animals, glaciers and whales.

The concept of smaller tour groups for both the pre-trip and boat cruise worked very well as you got to know your fellow passengers very well especially on the boat cruise.

The food on the ship was of very high quality and climaxed at the Captain's Dinner.

The bar and social hour each night was good and you got a chance to meet everyone. Everyone got along very well.

The crew worked very hard and was a lot of fun to be with at dining times.”
–Vincent & Jean O., Brick, NJ
“The food, desserts, and hors d'oeuvres were astounding! Everything was fabulous and WAY above our expectations! The staff was wonderful!”
–Betty and Paul M., Castle Dale, UT
“A trip to Alaska was on our "Bucket List." This trip was truly more than we ever imagined. Thank you for providing such wonderful adventures. The Denali pre-tour was such a wonderful addition to our Admiralty Dream cruise. I am so happy that we did both! The guides are 100% professionals and their dedication to educating people to the wonders of nature is unsurpassed. Their leadership and subject matter knowledge is amazing. I am so very glad that we were able to enjoy this wonderful trip!”
–Norman & Karen L., Midlothian, VA
“The raptor center and the Tlingit dance were wonderful!

On board, the chef accommodated my husband's long list of food allergies with delicious and interesting meals. He enjoyed the meals thoroughly and didn't feel he missed out on anything. It was a great treat for him.

Your staff is amazing in many ways. They are very knowledgable, personable, and fun to interact with. The breadth and scope of their knowledge is wonderful, and each one is a unique personality that works well with the others.

The crew was delightful, fun, personable and pleasant. Very professional and did a great job every day.

I have already recommended both Orbridge and the specific Alaska trip we took to many people.”
–Diane D., Roanoke, VA
“Overall this was a stunningly memorable trip and we also enjoyed getting to know many of our fellow passengers, more so than on other kinds of guided trips.”
–Alan B., Bellaire, TX
“This trip has become our new standard for selecting any further travel—it combined a great deal of learning with real comfort, a wonderful setting (both ship and Southeast Alaska), wildlife we had only imagined, and left us sad when it was over. This was also our first experience with Orbridge and we were very pleasantly impressed.”
–Catherine C. & George K., Hanover, NH
“I have traveled many places in the world and this trip has been by far the best travel experience I've ever had!

The accommodations were amazing, the guides friendly and knowledgeable, the programs informative, and the food delicious.

Alaska's scenery, wildlife and vastness blew my mind, however. I wasn't prepared for the enormity and unspoiled nature of the place. From flying over the ice-capped Alaska mountain range, to gazing into the eyes of a mother grizzly, kayaking with whales and hearing the thunderous crashes of calving glaciers, I was wowed beyond belief.

Thank you for providing me with the trip of a lifetime!”
–Meg C., Barnet, VT
“We feel very fortunate to have connected with Orbridge for this trip to Alaska. It was exactly what we were looking for—and more. The entire crew was outstanding. They excelled in making the experience something very, very special. Our gratitude to all of them!”
–Liz L., Denver, CO
“Can't fault the destination: Southeast Alaska is fantastic. And our guides, lectures, hikes, kayaking, films and entertainment were good to great.

This was my first cruise and first time in Alaska. There was no way I could have expected how fabulous the Tongass, glaciers, wildlife, and plant life would be. I feel very lucky to have seen it in such good company, on such a fine little "vessel." Good value indeed.”
–Eileen W., San Francisco, CA
“The pacing of the trip was really perfect. Often on such trips with other groups it seemed there was too much crammed into the time allowed. I came for the wilderness and the options were all well worth our time and I never felt rushed or exhausted both on board ship and in Denali.

The staff and ship were all top notch and their friendliness and helpful attitude enhanced the trip in many ways! I'm not sure where you could have found any better team anywhere. They were ALL individually and collectively excellent in all respects (including appropriate humor) - many thanks to all!”
–Rhonda O., Cincinatti, OH
