offers yacht charters through the Inside Passage of southeastern Alaska, to cities like Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg, and Wrangell. Itineraries include a 16-day journey from Ketchikan to Juneau, a week long Juneau to Juneau tour, and week charter from Juneau to Sitka. Regardless of which Alaska yacht charter you choose, you’ll enjoy exploring the deep fjords as your luxury yacht cruises the waters past towering blue glaciers. Watch in amazement as chunks of ice as big as houses break off and splash into the water below. The breath-taking scenery is unlike anywhere else. The purple, snow-capped mountains are a stunning backdrop to the lush rainforests and deserted beaches. Enjoy delicious cuisine of fresh seafood, hike the boardwalk trails, and relax in the hot springs of Baranof.
Boat Charters Alaska offers several activity-centered tours which may be of interest, just select the one that suits you best.Glacier Tours
: Get up close to the beautiful, huge glaciers throughout the area, including the SumDum, North and South Sawyer, and the Dawes Glaciers. See majestic waterfalls dropping from unbelievable heights, sailing close enough to feel the water drops on the deck.Whale Watching
: Experience a truly wonderful sight as the whales swim alongside the yacht. Humpbacks will make themselves known as they jump out of the water, spraying the side of the vessel as the splash back into the water. Orcas will swim gracefully in groups, bubble feeding on the schools of fish. You could see the migratory minke whale or maybe even the beaked whale. Don’t be surprised if whales or porpoises swim alongside the yacht in the waves of the bow. Wildlife Tours
: Come and see a truly wild Alaska on a yacht charter that brings you to areas known for wildlife. In addition to the amazing whales and birds you might see, you can also expect the lush landscape to reveal porpoises, seals, sea lions, otters, grizzly and black bears, and the unique Sitka black-tailed deer.Birding
: Bring your binoculars and your camera, because on a birding Alaska yacht charter, you’re sure to see some amazing species. The area is known for its abundance of bald eagles, which perch in the towering pines and soar through the air while hunting fish in the water below. Look also for the “sea parrot,” or puffin, with their colorful bill and black and white body. Other birds you might see include gulls, loons, cormorants, ducks, geese, crows, terns, kittiwakes, murres, murrelets, grebes, and auklets.
