In between lies a whole lot of spectacular scenery. Return to beginning of chapter CRUISING SOUTHEAST ALASKA Two Weeks This is an easy-to-plan trip to a scenic region of Alaska, although you should reserve space on the Alaska Marine Highway ferry if you want a cabin. Board the ferry in Bellingham, WA, and enjoy the coastal scenery for a couple of days before disembarking for two days at Ketchikan.

And in a state that could take months, if not years, to thoroughly explore, you get a chance to see many of the top sights in one convenient, all-inclusive package. Most days, you’ll get a chance to disembark in port for anywhere from four to eight hours, where you can bop around town, take in a hike or an excursion (which will cost you extra, of course), or even a longer trip inland to Denali National Park, Talkeetna or Eagle. You also get to sit on deck and spot bald eagles hunting, humpback whales breaching and glaciers calving: not a bad little bit of sight-seeing.
