When is the Best Time to Cruise Alaska?
• August – Although August is still in the peak season, you can expect a fifty-percent chance of rain during your cruise, so be prepared with waterproof boots and some wool socks to keep your feet warm and dry. Be sure to pick some of Alaska’s famous blueberries which are in season during this month. This is still a great time for seeing bear catching salmon or eating blueberries. Watch for bald eagles near the salmon-spawning streams. There are great photo opportunities everywhere you look.
• September – The last shoulder month can offer some great fare savings and smaller crowds. You’ll also have about the same chance for rain as in August, but that is part of the Alaska experience. The days are getting shorter and the nights longer and colder. September is rutting season (mating), and it’s not uncommon to catch moose or caribou in the act.
Bears can still be seen at salmon streams and filling their stomachs at berry patches. Keep your eyes open for the southern migration of gray, bowhead, and beluga whales. September is best known for a chance at spotting the aurora borealis (northern lights).
