“Quite simply the best crewed yacht charter in Alaska”

Our YachtClient Reviews

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 luxury charter boat 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 the 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


Debbie and Geoff Wilson do what they do because they love it, and their enthusiasm is infectious. Whether your visit to Alaska is the fulfillment of a once in a lifetime dream, or the start of an ongoing habit, your week, on your own personal Alaskan charter yacht, will be a never to be forgotten experience.

 Alaska Yacht Charters has all of the permits required to allow you access to Alaska’s otherwise restricted-entry federal and state lands. The Alaskan Story is one of only a few ships of her class to have permits to cruise in Glacier Bay, the crown jewel of the National Park system.

 Our cuisine is a highlight of every trip. Debbie selects the freshest available produce and often combines it with the “catch of the day.” Some of our clients return just for her desserts prepared daily. And your choice of premium beer and wine as well as soft drinks are available all day long.  Using our salt-water fishing gear you can catch your next meal from the cockpit. Or with crew in the “Whaler” you can catch Dungeness Crab or Alaskan Spotted Shrimp.

Each night we will anchor in a quiet, secluded anchorage. You will have the opportunity to go for a hike or kayak along the tidal shore viewing birds, marine life and even Alaskan Brown Bears.  Or you can stay aboard and watch a video on one of the two flat screen TV’s, listen to music or read a book chosen from the extensive library.
