Each spring and fall the Sea Wolf explores magical wilderness areas along Alaska’s Inside Passage. Guests of Sea Wolf Adventures’ Glacier Bay to Juneau and Juneau to Ketchikan (and their reverse itineraries) are afforded a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore one of these special areas called Endicott Arm; a 30- mile-long, narrow stretch of salt-water punctuated by floating ice bergs. Visitors to this lesser-known wilderness are awed by its’ steep rock walls, glacier-covered mountains and towering, plunging waterfalls.
Wildlife abounds in Endicott Arm as it serves as one of the largest breeding grounds for harbor seals on the planet. Along the way, other wildlife sightings may include brown bear, bald eagles, deer, moose, wolves, mountain goats and sea birds.
Serving as a grand finale, at the head of the fjord, lies the active tide-water Dawes Glacier. A front row seat to Dawes Glacier is a dramatic experience. At first sight, this glacier might seem to be static but it doesn’t take long to realize this frozen river of ice is indeed moving as it regularly serves up calving events – dropping huge chunks of its’ ancient ice thundering into the sea.
