When you sail on an Alaska Cruise from Canada’s beautiful West Coast Port of Vancouver, you’ll sail the cool, clean waters of the Inside Passage along the coast of British Columbia. These waters teem with wildlife. You’ll see whales, seals, sea lions and porpoises, and over head you view the majestic bald eagle. The dense rainforest made up of cedar, Douglas fir, hemlock and spruce, creates a green spill of vegetation down the rugged mountain slopes to the sea. This is the magnificent Alaska Cruise from Vancouver.
