Optional Ventures by Seabourn® excursions are guided by Seabourn’s expert Expedition Team of experienced kayak, zodiac and hiking guides, as well as academic experts in Alaskan natural history and wildlife.

Featured ports include the following:

  • Inian Islands, Alaska – As the gatekeepers to the northern entrance of the fabled Inside Passage, the remote Inian Islands stand between Cross Sound and Icy Strait and teem with wildlife, including otters, sea lions, and whales. Ventures by Seabourn kayak and Zodiac tours allow guests to get close to this wildlife-rich area and its biologically diverse waters.
  • Rudyerd Bay (Misty Fjords), Alaska – Delight in Rudyerd Bay and the Misty Fjords whose near-vertical 3,000-foot cliffs create stunning waterfalls and landmarks such as God’s Pocket and New Eddystone Rock. Whether by kayak, Zodiac or catamaran, guests can learn about the natural and human history of the area through interpretation provided by local guides and the Ventures by Seabourn Expedition team.
  • Wrangell, Alaska – One of the thousands of islands of the Alexander Archipelago, Wrangell Island sits at the heart of the Tongass National Rain Forest.  Highlights in the region include the Stikine River, Shakes Glacier and Anan Creek Bear Observatory, where guests can join the Expedition team bear expert and a photography specialist for the ultimate bear-viewing experience with Ventures by Seabourn.

Canada and New England

From September to November 2025, guests can journey through the colonial richness of New England and Canada aboard Seabourn Sojourn with a series of 12-day voyages between Montreal and New York City. During Autumn, early fall foliage transforms the northeast coast into a breathtaking world of colours, as lemon and warm umber leaves adorn the streets from Halifax to Boston. Guests can also opt for three unique combination, “Route of the Vikings” voyages crossing the Atlantic from Dover to either Montreal or New York City. Select ports offer overnight stays to give guests to see it all and embrace the abounding sites and culture.

Port highlights include Marquee cities as well as hidden gems in the region:

  • Quebec City, Quebec – Docking near the Petit Champlain quarter, the birthplace of Quebec, Seabourn Sojourn will offer a new overnight stay in Quebec City, where guests can participate in an interactive “Shopping with the Chef” experience and ride the funicular to UNESCO-inscribed Dufferin Terrace for a majestic view of Château Frontenac’s towers and copper roofs.
  • Baie-Comeau, Quebec – Located on the North Shore of the St. Lawrence River northeast of Quebec, this quaint town was born of the forest and river resources and still thrives on them. Explore the boreal forest, its wildlife, and the geology of the Laurentian Shield in displays and in person. Guests can kayak past glacial grooves carved into seaside cliffs for a more immersive experience.
  • Shelburne, Nova Scotia – Although it was first colonised by French Acadians in the late 17th century, Shelburne’s real expansion began during the American Revolution, when it was a haven for British Loyalists fleeing the mainland colonies. Guests can learn about this, as well as Shelburne’s shipbuilding past and other historical eras, in the town’s complex of three museums, including the Dory Shop Museum where boats are still built.
