7 Night Pacific Northwest Cruise
October 14th - October 22nd 

Travel Design by Ann is proud to partner with Shore House Outfitters to invite you to join Ann and Christy on this women's only adventure in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with UnCruise Adventures.

From the winding channels of the San Juan Islands to the inlets of coastal Washington, meanderings in the Pacific Northwest put you somewhere unique. Out here, a hike for every level means just that. Casual beachcombers can poke around tide pools. Or, if a rigorous hike is more your style, the temperate rainforest calls. Listen and find your place.

Go on a deep exploration of the San Juan Islands, South Puget Sound, and Deception Pass. Get a true taste of the Pacific Northwest on tidepool walks and hikes in temperate rainforests and to towering vistas. With great blue heron, owls, and other birds of the Salish Sea plus the whales, seals, porpoise and sea lions under the water, there’s wildlife all around.

Hike dramatic landscapes, kayak through canyons, sample local wines, and raft the rapids on this adventurous Snake River and Columbia River cruise.
