Alaska Adventure Cruise with The Boat Company

Take in the beautiful scenery from a small, luxury cruise ship on this Alaska adventure cruise.

Alaska Adventure Cruise with The Boat Company

Overview

See Alaska 'up close and personal' with The Boat Company cruises. Incorporated in 1979 by the McIntosh Foundation, The Boat Company is the only non-profit educational organization offering luxury eco-cruises through Southeast Alaska. With almost 40 years of cruising and conservation in Alaska's Inside Passage, The Boat Company has reinvested between $25 and $30 million into conservation efforts throughout the region.

The itinerary is flexible and spontaneous—tailored to accommodate your interests and fitness level. With one crew member for every two guests, you will choose each day from a wide variety of activities: early morning kayaking, beach-combing, trolling for king salmon or halibut, challenging hikes through ancient forest, gentle meadow walks, fish-printing, games and naturalist talks in the salon, whale watching, even (occasionally) relaxing on the fantail with a cool drink and a good book. Our guests don't just view the magnificent land from the deck as they cruise by...they get off the boat and touch it!

Accommodations

The Boat Company has spent almost 40 years cruising Alaska, offering small boat tours carrying just 20 to 24 guests. We provide a more intimate setting for our passengers, a higher degree of personal attention from the crew, and greater freedom to go “off-itinerary” and craft a truly memorable Alaskan adventure for you. The Liseron and the Mist Cove are the perfect vessels for your family vacation, fishing charter or wilderness discovery adventure!

M/V Liseron was built in 1952 in Seattle, sold to France as a minesweeper, and then acquired and lovingly restored in 1989 by The Boat Company. She is 145 feet long and 28 feet wide with a draft of 8.5 feet.

Several years ago, we built the M/V Mist Cove patterned on the Liseron but designed from scratch. She’s 157 feet long and 33 feet wide, with a draft of almost 9 feet, and constructed of heavy-duty aluminum. The interior is plush and stately with mahogany accents throughout.

Food & Drink

Our food and wine program is second to none. Our chefs prepare every meal with love and attention to detail. We are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions/requirements. We also stock our vessels with great wine and top-shelf liquor. you won't be disappointed. Further, our trips are all inclusive so you won't receive a bill at the end of the trip for food and beverage consumption like many other cruise ships in Alaska.
