An UnCruise adventure will get you up close to the emerald-green forests, glacier-carved valleys, jaw-dropping waterfalls and snow-capped mountains of Alaska’s national parks. No motor vehicles have cruised the Inside Passage for nearly two years, making now the perfect time to see the unspoiled wilderness Alaska is known for. It’s very likely that UnCruise Adventures will be the only ships present this summer, as larger ships will start their sailings later in the year. Imagine having the beauty of Alaska’s scenic national parks and off-the-beaten-path destinations all to yourself (and a small number of fellow passengers, of course). On a small ship like UnCruise Adventures that hosts a maximum of 86 passengers per sailing, intimate excursions mean personalized service and unparalleled access to wilderness experts.
Warmer temperatures and longer days in the summer months also make for ideal hiking conditions. Naturalist guides are there to lead your group on a forest hike and share details about marine biology, plants and geology. And if you don’t like to hike, there’s no pressure to do so. Guest comfort is key, and you can be as active as you want to be.
Eagles, sea otters, brown bears, harbor seals, humpback whales and mountain goats—these are just a few of the creatures you’re likely to spot on an Alaska cruise. On any of the 7, 12 or 14-night sailings UnCruise Adventures offers, you’re guaranteed to experience unique and unforgettable wildlife sightings. Go birding at South Marble Island, where puffins, oystercatchers, cormorants and kittiwakes are at close range. Watch for whales at Frederick Sound. Take a “polar bear plunge” as fellow travelers cheer you on. Spot pods of orcas as you kayak along peaceful waters. Or simply relax on deck with a glass of champagne and glide by a blissful scene of sea otters sunning.
UnCruise Adventures always considers the well-being of Alaska’s animals and their habitats. Since its launch 25 years ago, the company has been committed to environmentally responsible travel.
