Adventure Cruises // North America

Queen Charlotte Islands, BC:
Mothership Sea Kayak Voyage

July -Sept • $3665 CAD

This private cruise is limited to five people! Off the coast of British Columbia and home to the native Haida people, the “Gwaii Haanas” or “Place of Wonder,” is a wilderness paradise! Repeatedly ranked the #1 National Park in North America by National Geographic, it is common to see whales, porpoise, sea lions, sea birds, and the rare Tufted Puffin in this remote area. At low tide, kayaks are the perfect craft to unobtrusively view the rainbow explosion of marine creatures and witness black bears feeding on the shoreline. Ashore, hike among the pristine moss-laden old growth forests. Visit SGang Gwaay (Anthony Island), World Heritage sites, and other villages for a glimpse into the culture of the Haida. You travel in comfort aboard a 42-foot yacht, fully outfitted for your cruise. Kayaks are nestled snuggly above the covered aft deck. With a well-oiled crew, these can be slung over the side and you can be away from the yacht within minutes. Whether paddling in hidden inlets or relaxing under a huge cedar tree, the remoteness and wildness of the Gwaii Haanas is magical!

This trip is great if you sign up on your own, but it is truly ideal for a group of five friends…Call today for availability!

I just had a marvelous cruise. I mean it is definitely an “Uncruise”. Every single day I kayaked off the back of the boat. The activities we did, the places we got into, it was absolutely amazing. I just can’t thank you enough.

Alaska: Northern Passages & Glacier Bay

Dates April – September • From $2995

This Adventure Cruise is chosen for active wilderness explorations in the region of travel on yachts or small vessels designed for close and upfront experience with marine and land flora and fauna and cultural interactions.

Small ship exploration of Alaska’s northern passages and Glacier Bay.

Hi Sandy,
After participating in several of the trips you put together I would say this is right in step with your style! Lots of adventure, many choices, some pampering and leisure time, too.

Each day had a choice of activities in the morning and the afternoon. We did kayaking, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, bush whack hiking, shore hiking, and skiff tours. A stretch session was offered early most mornings, and some sort of entertainment was provided in the evening.

The scenery was breath taking. Since the ship is small we could really get up close. The wildlife we were able to view was incredible.
