Your Alaskan Cruise – Your Way

Glacier view up close with children

Our guests don’t just view the magnificent land and wildlife from the deck… they get out and experience it!

See the best Alaska’s Inside Passage has to offer with The Boat Company – the only non-profit educational organization offering luxury eco-cruises in Southeast Alaska.  Our itinerary is flexible and built around the interests of you and your fellow guests.  Our skilled and capable crew is eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you by offering a varied menu of activities each day. Our guests don’t just view this magnificent land and its inhabitants through binoculars… they get off the boat and experience it!

Fly fishing on Alaska's streams

Stream fish with knowledgeable guides

As we work our way from inlet to inlet, relax, visit with friends and family (reconnect with the grandchildren), fish (both fly and spin), whale watch, or photograph the gorgeous scenery from the deck of the MIST COVE or LISERON. Hikers are encouraged to spend as much time off the boat as they like exploring forest service trails, beach-combing tidal flats, and walking the stream beds in the company of our naturalist and guides. Fishermen may troll for king salmon or halibut from our 19 foot aluminum skiffs or stream fish onshore with knowledgeable guides.  Kayakers glide through hidden coves along scenic shorelines.

When you cruise Alaska with The Boat Company you will be surprised by the weather.  Protected by tall coastal mountains and warmed by Japanese currents off the Pacific Ocean, Southeast Alaska’s temperate marine climate is characterized by comfortable year-round temperatures, with average summer days in the 60′s or low to mid 70′s and cool nights in the 40’s and 50’s.

The Boat Company vessels are perfect for glacier watching; up close by skiff (with cocoa and warm, fresh cookies) or from the fantail dining area as you linger over lunch. We’ll land you on deserted beaches for a stroll among the tide pools or anchor in close for kayaking adventures and hikes – tailored to your activity level – among virgin forests, muskegs and alpine slopes.

It’ll be an adventure you’ll never forget!
