The Wilderness Adventurer was constructed in 1984 and renovated in 2011. The comfortable interiors boast great amenities in public and private areas and plenty of spaces to enjoy the fresh air and stretch your legs. Visit the sun deck or observation deck to admire the views. There are just 30 cabins on the vessel. With a maximum of 60 passengers per trip, your small ship cruise is ideal for making new friends and mingling whilst still enjoying the top-notch services and the ambiance of being part of a smaller group. Each comfortable en suite cabin has a TV and DVD player. You’ll also be delighted to find that each cabin has a viewing window, ideal for peaking at the wonders outside when you wake up. Watch and listen to the sounds of the sea with an underwater camera and hydrophone. Skiffs, paddleboards, and kayaks make active adventures more accessible. Other onboard equipment includes hiking poles and yoga mats. The inviting lounge evokes feelings of the wilds of Alaska, with an attractive bar made from local cedar wood. You can relax in the hot tub or get your heart racing using onboard fitness equipment.

Board the Wilderness Adventurer for a 7-night journey through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Marvel at the majesty of the Misty Fjords National Monument, spot lots of local wildlife, and then be enchanted by nature at Behm Canal and Tongass National Forest. Watch for wildlife, glaciers, and waterfalls in Thomas Bay, Stephens Passage, Fords Terror, or Endicott Arm. Whichever itinerary you choose, explore hidden parts of Alaska most visitors don’t get to see.

A guest-to-staff ratio of three to one on the Wilderness Adventurer ensures you will be more than well looked after on your vacation. Choose your trip and book online to reserve your desired dates.

The boat captain and crew were outstanding in all respects, as was the food its presentation.

Seeing the bears and other wildlife, getting to know most of the on-board guests, and the sheer beauty of the fall transition of the landscape.

The crew, the Alaskan wilderness, and the small guest size.

Enjoyed every minute!

Wildlife - humpbacks, orcas, mountain goats, brown and black bears, sea otters, seals, porpoises, eagles, lots of birds, crustaceans, and a porcupine plus all the flora and mushrooms. Glaciers up close, including calving and riding around the small icebergs. Hanging out in the bridge with the Captain.

Super fun and more amazing than I could have imagined.

See above. Compliments to the kitchen and servers who worked SO hard and were so efficient. Same for housekeeping. Smart, friendly, tour guides and crew. Give them all a bonus. Ashley, the bartender, was friendly and knowledgeable and quick to fill requests. However, I don't drink alcohol. Occasionally pitchers of lemonade were available and VERY good and I drank a lot of diet Coke. But I wasn't getting the bang for my buck on the open bar.

Most amazing was seeing humpback whales do cooperative bubble net feeding! The glaciers and landscape were also beautiful, and it was great to get off the boat for hiking and kayaking excursions

Amazing Alaska adventure

Calving glaciers, watching whales and the experience of bush whacking.

Recommended for
Flexibility - we were facing stormy weather, and the team totally rearranged the tour to keep us out of the heavy winds - the new route we took even included some highlights that otherwise we would have missed out on. Everybody on board was focussed on giving us the best experience - in terms of adventure, food and service.
