The weather in SE Alaska, particularly during the months of October thru March, can be forceful and unpredictable. Thirty to fifty knot winds and rain are common and infrequently cause delays in arrivals and/or departures and on very rare occasions may result in cancellation of a voyage. Passenger safety is our foremost concern in all circumstances.
