Alaska Cruise

Vancouver BC Tourist Information and City Guide

The most popular destination for cruises departing from Vancouver BC is Alaska.  Cruise passengers can enjoy spectacular views of massive glaciers and explore picturesque coastal towns.

Many cruise ships sail up the "Inland Passage", a network of waterways that weave through islands along the west coast of British Columbia and Alaska.

Because the Inland Passage is protected from the open ocean, the waters are normally calm.  The mountain scenery is spectacular!
