With over 20 years of exploring Alaska, nobody knows it better than Uncruise. Our captains and crew navigate its waterways and inlets as easily as walking the halls of their own ship—and are always on the lookout. Spot a bear foraging for salmon on the shore and the captain swings back around so you can get a better look. There’s nowhere better to be than right here.
Ideal for those with an explorer’s spirit and a love for nature, Alaska delivers. Aboard our small ships, access to off-the-beaten path places, wildlife up-close, and opportunities to experience it by hike, kayak, and skiff show a side of Alaska few visitors know.
Like the landscape, the wildlife in Southeast Alaska is big. You may spot mountain goats patrolling shoreline cliffs, black bears catching their lunch, and, moose foraging in marshy tidelands. The mainland and islands of Southeast are ripe for sightings.
Life on the outside. Our Alaska cruises deliver adventure, action, exploration, and the unexpected—paddling and hiking, calving glaciers, Glacier Bay National Park, bears, whales, and polar plunges. Nobody does Alaska better.
Alaska boasts the most itineraries of all our destinations. Whether you go for 7, 12, or 14 nights, there truly is a trip for everyone.
From early April into May, Southeast Alaska awakens. Bears, baby animals, migrating grey whales and birds, budding forests, snow-covered peaks, gushing waterfalls, and Aurora Borealis sightings can be part of your experience. Plus, it’s crowd-free.
Long days of Alaska summers mean extra playtime. Temps are warmer, so there’s better access to higher elevation hikes. And humpbacks are back en masse. Come summer’s end and into early fall, wildlife gets busy—mating, migrating, and feeding up for winter.
