Get a breath of fresh air while exploring Alaska’s spectacular scenery, much of which is still completely unexplored. Catch a glimpse of wildlife including bald eagles, whales, wolves, moose and Alaska’s most famous resident, the brown bear.
Boasting 34,000 miles of coastline and over 3 million lakes, the Great Land is the ultimate destination for thrill-seekers. Paddle your way through the fjords and experience the splendour of Alaska’s majestic blue icebergs first-hand. Snorkel in shallow tide pools or take a rollercoaster ride through the rapids on the white-water adventure of a lifetime. Navigate calm, protected bays and watch whales and dolphins breach the icy-blue water around you, this is not your average yacht charter.
