This private cruise offers a light mix of natural history, local culture, and a glimpse into the past of this very special corner of Alaska. Your experienced and enthusiastic captain will share stories of life—wild and human—as you weave through the channels, around verdant islands, and into quiet inlets surrounding the beautiful town of Sitka. Spot sea lions, eagles, and perhaps even sea otters and whales. Learn about the commercial fishing industry, native culture, and Sitka’s WWII period. See where locals have made their homes among the islands and hear about Russian past, Seward’s Folly, and the thriving present of this wonderful community balanced on the coastal edge of the Tongass National Forest. Your Captain is a USCG-licensed 100-ton master with nearly 30 years experience on the waters of Southeast Alaska—who also happens to hold a degree in forest sciences, fished commercially for 10 years, and worked as a fisheries biologist and a US Forest Service botanist. It would be hard to find a better guide as you discover wild, historic, dynamic, beautiful Sitka.
