Wilderness Adventurer, Alaska

BOOK NOW

The Wilderness Adventurer was constructed in 1984 and renovated in 2011. The comfortable interiors boast great amenities, both in public and private areas, and there are plenty of spaces to enjoy some 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 ambience that comes with 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 taking a peek of the wonders outside the minute 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 cedarwood. You can relax in the hot tub or get your heart racing using onboard fitness equipment.

Board the Wilderness Adventurer for a 7- or 14-night journey through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Marvel at the majesty of the Misty Fjords National Monument and spot lots of local wildlife and then be further enchanted by nature at Behm Canal and Tongass National Forest. Take in cultural Wrangell and meet the Tlingit people. 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 that you will be more than well looked after on your vacation. Choose your trip and call us or book online to reserve your desired dates.

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.

Seeing wildlife in their own environment. The majesty of Alaska. Making new friends.

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.

Stunning scenery, amazing wildlife viewing

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

Fantastic Alaska Adventure Cruise

Being able to walk in places where humans seldom go and to be able to paddle our kayaks among sea otters, seals and porpoises was absolutely magnificent. Having park ranger Nicole on board for three days was tremendous due to her infectious enthusiasm for the park and extensive knowledge of the area. The on-board guides were extremely knowledgeable and attentive to everyone's needs always ensuring our activities were conducted safely.

The places we visited were extraordinary, the whole crew was fantastic and the weather was unbelievable.
