About The Boat Company
Taking an Alaskan Cruise in 2015, or planning ahead for 2016? See the best Alaska has to offer with The Boat Company. Incorporated in Alaska in 1979 by the McIntosh Foundation, The Boat Company is the only non-profit educational organization offering luxury eco-cruises through Southeast Alaska (allowing for a portion of the cost to be tax deductible). With over 30 years of work in Alaska, The Boat Company has reinvested between $25 and $30 million into our conservation efforts throughout Southeast Alaska. The itinerary of Boat Company trips is flexible and spontaneous. With a skilled and capable crew on the M/V LISERON and M/V MIST COVE – featuring a ratio of two guests per one crew member – the needs and wishes of each guest can be accommodated without difficulty. Hikers can spend as much time off the boat as they like – hiking the forest service trails, beach-combing the tide flats, walking the stream beds and taking leisurely strolls along the beaches in the company of our trained naturalists. Fishermen can stream fish or take out skiffs (19 foot center consoled, aluminum hulled fishing boats) with guides and try their luck. Kayaks can explore hidden coves and scenic shorelines. Our guests don’t just view the magnificent land from afar… they get out and experience it!
