With a shallow draft for navigating and spacious bow for gathering to view wildlife, nature enthusiasts have loved exploring with Spirit of Discovery.

Spirit of Discovery - Activities & Entertainment
Part of the joy of traveling on a small ship like Spirit of Discovery is the ability to explore your location without overrunning the community. The focus onboard Spirit of Discovery is, as all Cruise West ships, on the destination, nature itself and exploration. You won't find this ship loaded down with onboard distractions. Guests prefer whale watching to an evening in an onboard casino, so the ship focuses on open deck spaces and sheltered lounges with windows, comfortable cabins and dining rooms. Spirit of Discovery Reviews indicate that you'll love this intimate atmosphere.
Onboard lectures and slide shows are offered en route to port which passengers enjoy because it expands their understanding and appreciation of the culture and natural history of their destination. Spirit of Discovery Reviews state that the crew and Exploration Leaders have gathered lore of the land and insider knowledge that they are more than eager to share, weaving a rich historical tapestry of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, right up to current marks in history like the new profile of Mt. St. Helens and the modern environmental issues of salmon survival and irrigation rights.
Onboard Spirit of Discovery you'll experience overnight anchorages in beautiful secluded coves. According to Spirit of Discovery Reviews, you'll enjoy Skagway and relive a vivid chapter of America's Gold Rush history. Cruise in and out of the hidden nooks and crannies through Alaska's remote wilderness. Explore the natural highlights between Ketchikan and Juneau at leisure; humpback whales in Frederick Sound, sea lions sprawling on the rocks, and cliffside nests of murrelets, puffins and other seabirds. And depending on what season you visit, watch bears fishing at Fish Creek!
During the months when it's too cold to explore Alaska, you can take 7-night U.S. River Spirit of Alaska vacations. Departing form Portland, Oregon, Spirit of Discovery sails through the Columbia River and cruises the Snake River. Stop at Hells Canyon, Oregon, and explore the area. Travel on to Walla Walla, Washington, and visit the Dalles and Maryhill Museum. Astoria and Fort Clatsop is the last stop before returning to Portland.
