    Originally an oceanographic research vessel for the University of Washington, the MV Catalyst now offers small ship cruises to South-East Alaska. Exploring the Inside and Eastern Passages, guests will have the chance to visit tidewater glaciers, kayak through narrow inlets like previous adventurers such as John Muir once did and journey through ice-filled fjords. Experience nature at its best and see amazing wildlife first-hand, such as brown bears, harbor seals, humpback whales and orcas. You will travel through fishing towns and experience remote wilderness at its finest, as the talented and passionate crew of the MC Catalyst show you all that South-East Alaska has to offer as the itineraries have been carefully crafted over decades of experience.

    Catering to only 12 adventurers, the M/V Catalyst has 6 cabins on board. Cabin 1, located on the main deck has a private en-suite bathroom, as does cabin 6 which is located on upper deck. Cabins 2, 3 4 & 5 are located on the lower deck and share a bathroom between them. Food on board MV Catalyst is sourced locally and prepared from fresh ingredients, and where possible are organic and non-processed.

    MV Pacific Catalyst is sure to deliver an Alaskan adventure of a lifetime. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.
