On the Grid and in the Wild

Nobody does Alaska better—and UnCruise delivers on that promise with Mother Nature leading the way. Small ships, BIG adventures. Perfect for those with an explorer’s spirit and a love for all things wild, Alaska is where you live life on the outside.

The wildlife: You have your pick. Sure-footed mountain goats on cliffs, foraging bears along the shoreline and playful sea otters in inlets. Spy hopping orcas, then the whales. Humpbacks give you the fluke and show off with a rare bubble-net feeding. Bring your binoculars to get a good look at the bald eagles, too (they look like golf balls in the trees).

The setting: Bundle up and head on deck, or take it all in from the hot tub. Snowy mountains, surging waterfalls, granite-walled fjords, and ice chunks floating by or calving from glaciers. At night, there’s a chance for an Aurora Borealis sighting or perhaps a star-filled sky. With only 22-86 fellow adventurers, you always have a front row seat for the action.

The adventure: Skiffs and kayaks get you into Alaska’s fjords, coves, and crannies with a hit of fresh air. You might even be tempted into a “polar plunge.” Are you more of a feet-on-the-ground kind of adventurer? Amble on a beach or scramble through forests pushing branches aside and stepping over fallen trees. Pack your rubber boots (aka “Alaskan tennis shoes”) and jump in muskegs and boot-sucking mud. All led by your expert expedition team.

“I found that people come to Alaska for various reasons but the biggest, quite frankly, is a feeling of being in the wild. A feeling of being free. Of being someplace that hasn’t been touched. And that is Alaska.” –Dan Blanchard, UnCruise CEO
