Un-Cruise Adventures

- Nights - From

Un-Cruise Adventures are unmatched, hands-on small boat expeditions. The Un-Cruise concept offers several styles to choose from: Active Adventures; Luxury Adventures; Heritage Adventures; and Charter Adventures – each offering an alternative to traditional cruising. Explore areas inaccessible to larger ships, step ashore in small communities, and get up-close with wildlife.

These small yachts and expedition boats serve as a platform in Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Columbia & Snake Rivers, and in the coastal waters of Washington &  British Columbia. Expert Captains and guides lead you on adventures - trekking into forests and engaging in local communities; kayaking and skiff rides through serene wilderness; exploring along shore and searching for wildlife.

Un-Cruise Adventures are flexible and vary in order to limit impacts on fragile ecosystems. Filled with unspoiled encounters, they focus on activities and excursions that complement the wilderness, wildlife and culture in each destination.
