Alaska's Inside Passage and Glacier Bay are best experienced free from crowds and in a way that constantly puts the shore, wildlife, glaciers and remote villages at your fingertips. The 22-guest luxury yacht 'Safari Quest' spends two days inside Glacier Bay for exclusive guided hikes, up-close glacier viewing, and kayaking excursions to observe bear, wolf or moose. A park ranger joins the yacht's naturalist on board to escort hikes and interpret the mysteries of this glacial wonderland.
Depending on your party's size and interests you may prefer the 12-guest 'Safari Spirit' that explores LeConte Bay and the whales of Frederick Sound on seven-night cruises between Petersburg's "Little Norway" and Juneau. The 36-guest 'Safari Explorer' rounds out your choices with seven-night adventures that include Glacier Bay.
All three yachts navigate the narrowest channels, linger with breaching whale and offer opportunities for further exploration on guided hikes, kayak and skiff excursions. Stand on the bow as your yacht nudges underneath a waterfall and breathe in Alaska's fresh air as you relax in the on-deck hot tub. Your cruise includes freshly caught seafood, premium spirits, shore excursions and an on-board naturalist. An all-American crew provides outstanding service with a guest to crew ratio of 2:1.
