You don’t just visit Alaska, you explore it.
Whether your interests are wildlife viewing, local history and culture or adventure, land or water based, Alaska will not disappoint.
The summer brings long, often surprisingly warm days which are perfect for sightseeing and relaxation.
We think that the best way to experience South East Alaska is on board a small ship – one which can access and explore the bays and inlets not accessible to large cruise vessels.
Our favourites are Un-Cruise Adventures – unrushed, uncrowded and unbelievable. Choose from Wilderness expedition boats which are specifically designed for action and adventure, or Safari yachts which are all about casual luxury and soft adventure.
Both offer unique, off-the-beaten-path itineraries, up-close encounters, skilled staff, local experts, delicious cuisine and memories to last a lifetime.
The three Safari vessels accommodate 22, 36 or 86 guests and offer either 7 or 14 night cruises.
The three Wilderness (adventure) vessels accommodate 60 or 76 guests with cruise durations of 7, 14 or 21 nights.
Cabins on board all the ships are spacious and comfortable and the service is outstanding.
We offer other Alaska holiday options. On a tailor-made self-drive tour, we’ll help you select the areas that appeal to you the most, and lay on accommodation to suit from luxury hotels to wilderness lodges, friendly B&Bs to simple motels.
