A cruise on the Alaska Inner Passage is the best way to see Alaska's coastline. The Inner Passage is a narrow waterway surrounded by majestic peaks and coastal communities. Because of its beauty, many cruise companies offer trips through this narrow waterway. Many start in Vancouver, British Columbia and end in Ketchikan, Alaska. However, all cruises are different and you can pick which route suits you the best.
