Alaska's diverse marine and wildlife are yours to discover during this intimate wildlife-viewing adventure aboard a deluxe expedition-style catamaran, and a visit to a remote island.

Depart the pier aboard a catamaran for a cruise along Sitka Sound's rugged coastline. Your captain will use his understanding of tides, weather and seasonal changes to design an expedition uniquely-suited to the day. The high speed and maneuverability of your catamaran will allow you to explore areas unreachable by conventional boat, and witness the very best of Sitka Sound's marine and coastal wildlife.

During your ride, you may see whales, sea otters, puffins, brown bears and other diverse species that thrive in this pristine environment. As animals are sighted, the captain will skillfully maneuver the vessel to provide optimal viewing, and your naturalist guide will explain their fascinating life cycles and behavior. You can take in this encounter from the comfort of the window-lined cabin, or indulge all of your senses by experiencing it from the open deck.

Next, you will step ashore on a remote island to explore colorful tide pools, trace the meandering tracks of wildlife, or settle on a giant beach log and take in the splendid beauty of your surroundings. While beachcombing, keep your eyes peeled for Japanese fishing floats and other exotic flotsam. Enjoy a complimentary gourmet snack as you "fly" back to Sitka in catamaran comfort, including full restroom and mini-galley.
