About The Boat Company
Taking an Alaskan Cruise in 2015 or planning ahead for 2016? See Alaska ‘up close and personal’ with The Boat Company. Incorporated in 1979 by the McIntosh Foundation, The Boat Company is the only non-profit educational organization offering luxury eco-cruises through Southeast Alaska (a portion of the cost of most trips is tax deductible). With over 35 years of cruising and conservation in Alaska’s Inside Passage, The Boat Company has reinvested between $25 and $30 million into conservation efforts throughout the region.
The itinerary is flexible and spontaneous – tailored to accommodate your interests and fitness level. With one crew member for every two guests – you will choose each day from a wide variety of activities: early morning kayaking, beach-combing, trolling for King salmon or halibut, challenging hikes through ancient forest, gentle meadow walks, fish-printing, games and naturalist talks in the salon, whale watching, even (occasionally) relaxing on the fantail with a cool drink and a good book. Our guests don’t just view the magnificent land from the deck as they cruise by… they get off the boat and touch it!
