“Quite simply the best crewed yacht charter in Alaska”
Aboard the Alaskan Story you will see, up close and personal, Alaska’s incredible wildlife: Humpback whales, Brown Bears, Orcas, Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, Dall Porpoises, Eagles and perhaps even Wolves and Moose.
Aboard your own private charter boat in Alaska you will eat, and catch if you choose, King and Silver salmon, Halibut, Dungeness Crab and Alaskan Spotted Shrimp. A week aboard the Alaskan Story is an adventure through Norwegian-like fjords, past icebergs the size of houses up to tide-water glaciers, arriving just in time to see a thundering “calving” of huge pieces of ice crashing into the sea.
Many of our competitors do not have permits to guide their clients onto Tongass National Forest: Over 80% of Southeast Alaska. Click here for more information
