Important Update: Flexible booking & cancellation terms now offered by this operator. Find out more »

Join the MV Discovery yacht for an unforgettable small-ship cruise in Alaska. At 87ft, the M/V Discovery can travel to where the larger cruise ships can't go, and with only 10 guests on board, she promises to deliver an intimate experience. Elegant yet functional. The Discovery Alaska features an open layout with ample room to relax and unwind on your cruise. There are four spacious common areas, each with picture windows to offer panoramic views of the stunning Alaskan scenery. Six well-appointed staterooms with comfortable beds, storage space, vanity/sink and opening portholes are located on the lower deck, along with 2 shared bathrooms and showers.

Family owned and operated since 1981, and one of the first small-ship eco cruises in Alaska, the MV Discovery captain and crew know the region extremely well. Alaskan cruises are 8-days/7-nights long, and with no set schedule, flexible itineraries mean better wildlife encounters. Stop to photograph bald eagles on an iceberg, spend time with Humpback whales or go hiking in the Alaskan wilderness without worrying about sticking to a fixed schedule.

For an unforgettable journey off the beaten track, call us today to book your small-ship Alaskan cruise aboard the MV Discovery.
