Small Ship Alaska Cruises in August
Escape the heat of the Lower 48 on a cruise aboard the Sikumi for a cruise through Alaska’s Inside Passage.
August brings deep summer to Alaska, but temperatures remain mild and pleasant in the 60s in Southeast Alaska. And with these mild and warm temperatures, wildlife flourishes, and the Alaskan landscape is alive with lush green foliage and colorful wildflowers.
Whales and bears alike are feeding before the long winter takes hold once again. A dense population of humpbacks feeds in the waters of Southeast Alaska preparing for their journey back to Hawaiian waters. Bears are fattening up for their long, winter hibernation, and migratory birds prepare to head South.
Alaska is alive with activity in August, and the warm, summer days of Southeast Alaska cause the landscape to move and change. Experience the powerful and incredible force of calving glaciers and moving icebergs. And there is still plenty of daylight in August to experience all you can take in aboard the Sikumi.
