Discovery & Animal Planet Excursions
Unlock a world of adventure with Discovery at SEA™, Princess' exclusive partnership with Discovery™ and Animal Planet™. Immerse yourself in Alaska and see the best the region has to offer with "Recommended" tours or choose "Exclusive" Alaska cruise excursions that you can only experience with Princess – like fishing for king salmon, dogsledding through beautiful terrains, and canoeing past Mendenhall Glacier.
Alaska is teeming with wildlife. See the Great Land’s most famous animals — like humpback whales — on Alaska shore excursions. Marvel at bald eagles in their natural habitats while in Ketchikan. See humpbacks play alongside sea lions in Juneau. Or keep a lookout for Denali National Park’s Big Five — including moose, caribou, grizzly bears, wolves, and Dall sheep — while on a bus tour in the park.
The Great Land was built on a strong culture. On Princess' Alaska shore excursions, step back in time to learn how these traditions came to fruition and how they're practiced today. Attend a lumberjack axe-throwing competition, watch a Native dance performance and excite your taste buds at a salmon bake with locals. Or watch as craftsmen thoughtfully carve totem poles at a Native Alaskan village.
Gold Rush History
Strike it rich on a cruise excursion in Alaska where you can pan for gold like the many treasure hunters before you. Tour mining camps and meet experienced miners who hold secrets of The Last Frontier. Visit a restored saloon to craft cocktails from age-old recipes. Or board a gold rush-era train that takes you through Yukon territory and brings you up close to some of Alaska's most historical sites.
With waters as prosperous as the treasures on land, discover what lies below the surface on Alaska cruise excursions that take you out to sea. Hear thrilling tales from members of the award-winning TV series Deadliest Catch. Or learn to fly fish from an expert guide. As a part of a unique culinary experience, Cook My Catch, bring your fresh-caught fish on board and have Princess chefs prepare it for your dinner.
Glaciers are the epitome of Alaska. Sailing past them is a sensory experience that inspires both the mind and heart. Watch as Hubbard Glacier calves into the water and listen for the rumble of “white thunder” that it leaves in its path. Land by helicopter on top of Mendenhall Glacier, and feel its strong roots beneath you. Or navigate its rugged terrain by way of flightseeing or dogsled shore excursion.
There’s a world of sights to be seen in the Great Land and an Alaska cruise excursion gives you a front-row seat to it all. Bring history books to life when you tour Skagway, the former gateway to the gold rush, and visit Gold Dredge 8 in Fairbanks to learn even more about mining. Travel along the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway, or aboard a riverboat sternwheeler for sweeping views of Alaska’s greatest treasures.
There’s a reason it’s called the Great Land — including its great outdoors. Get up close to renowned glaciers on a flightseeing tour, zipline through Tongass National Forest, and hike along the mountainside of Ketchikan’s Deer Mountain Trail which takes you 3,000 feet above sea level. Whether you prefer to traverse by land, sea or air, any number of these cruise excursions in Alaska will bring you on a wild ride through The Last Frontier.
Denali National Park Tours
Home to the highest mountain in North America, Denali National Park is brimming with magnificence. Search for the Big Five — grizzly bears, Dall sheep, wolves, caribou, and moose — while on a bus tour in the park. Most Princess Alaska cruisetours include a tour into Denali National Park.
