On the Inside Passage it will be dusk by 7pm. The sunrise/sunsets vary GREATLY depending where in Alaska. Do a web search for a listing.

Timeanddate.com is really a COOL site! I can't find but only one port -- and looks like it will be dark most of the time with sunset at 7ish

If you only find one port, actually on the Inside Passage they all will be similar. And no chance of going in Sept for a 10pm sun set a negative for port activities. Be also well prepared in your attire, you are going at the MOST iffy weather time with a possible range of nice - last 2 years that were very atypical to the usual of ave. of 3 days of rain, temps 40-50.

Karen...you must have been on an Alaska September cruise. I picked Alaska in September for 2 reasons -- 1 because of my work and 2 because we are going on a cruise in June (Elation) and didn't want to book toooooo soon after because of work on both sides. So, am hoping for the best. Please tell me that the rain doesn't damper to much of the trip-as far as excursions picked or scenery! I will be devestated. Thanks

Scenery will be great. The excursions most often affected are helicopters and airplanes.
I used to work for a whale watch company here and September days would keep us hopping as helicopter trips cancelled and folks suddenly wanted to go whale watching.

But definitely come prepared for rain. Our rainy season starts about August 15. When the cruise line first started soming here so late in the year. I thought it was a rip off, but we got a lot of folks from So.Cal, Ariz who had chosen to come in September because the rain was so refreshing. Now I have to believe that the cruise lines had insider info from the weaher man because the weather here has definitely changed and our Septembers have been being nicer.

It is true we have long daylight at the solstice, but then we start losing sunlight at the rate of 4 minutes a day.Since the solstice is in June, the length of days in September isomprable to March. (with a little assist from daylight saving time).
