The 25-cabin Baranof Dream can accommodate up to 49 guests in comfortable en suite cabins, each with a window for great viewing of the wondrous landscapes and captivating wildlife. Cabins are simple with a timeless style and nautical-themed touches. The vessel’s design makes it ideal for exploring narrow channels and taking you closer to remote coves. Wonder at the marvels of nature from the large front-facing viewing area and watch the world go by from the covered outer deck. If you’re feeling active, why not use one of the onboard kayaks to explore more? A small ship cruise is an ideal way to make new friends among your fellow passengers, and the comfortable lounge/bar and cozy dining area on the Baranof Dream is perfect for relaxing and mingling.

Baranof Dream offers cruises around Alaska, letting you appreciate the icy wonderlands and the creatures that live in the waters and around the coast. Embark on a seven-night expedition from Sitka to Juneau, or vice versa, and meet the Tlingit people in Kake, explore the shallow waters of Saginaw Bay, experience the Scandinavian-like vibe of Petersburg, spot whales at Frederick Sound, be awed by Tracy Arm Fjord and Glacier Bay National Park, and take part in diverse activities like kayaking and hiking. For a longer adventure, join a 15-night cruise from Sitka to Ketchikan. Including most destinations of the shorter cruise, you can also explore the historic structures of Haines and the gold rush town of Skagway, see rock carvings in Wrangell, visit the former logging area of Thorne Bay, sail through Misty Fjords, and meet the Metlakatla Indians of Annette Island.

The friendly crew members of the Baranof Dream are keen to extend a warm welcome and help you have the holiday of your dreams. Book online to secure your cabins for your preferred dates.
