Explore Alaska aboard National Geographic Quest
In Southeast Alaska — a land of fjords and islands teeming with wildlife – you can wake to the cry of a soaring eagle, watch tons of ice thunder from the face of a glacier, walk in a spruce forest, and observe lunge-feeding whales. The brand new National Geographic Quest is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built expedition vessel made for exploring Alaska's coastal waters, shallow coves, and fast-moving channels where wildlife congregate while sailing in supreme comfort.

"Excellent in Every Way"
"Every day on the National Geographic ship was memorable. With the zodiacs, we could approach wildlife within a few feet and observe their behavior unhurried. The naturalists taught us so much about the grizzlies, marine mammals and birds. The service of the staff was excellent in every way. We've traveled extensively and find that the small ship cruises are perfect. They afford more comfort in getting to the next destination and you only have to pack and unpack your luggage once. It was great working with ExpeditionTrips to plan our trip. They were always helpful and available. Thank you!"
