Find Your Perfect Alaskan Adventure

Alaskans love showing off Alaska, especially while sailing the spectacular waters of the Inside Passage. We think this is the best of Alaska and are proud to provide trips exploring Glacier Bay National Park, Admiralty Island National Monument, and the Tongass National Forest. The wildlife and scenery are remarkable, and it seems like something incredible happens every day. Whether your goal is sailing to a glacier, photographing brown bears feeding, seeing humpback whales, kayaking through icebergs, hooking onto a big fish, adding new birds to your “life-list”, or myriad other Alaska Activities, we look forward to sharing this majestic area with you!

Upcoming Trips

This week long tour of S.E. Alaska was totally eye-opening for us about the breadth and incredible beauty of SE Alaska. Blain and Monique are excellent hosts; their flexibility and collaboration and humor are evident as they share each day's work. They create a very casual, welcoming atmosphere even though they're working hard to keep the trip on schedule, etc. We learned about sleeping whales - something we, as experienced NW sailors, knew nothing about! Sailing and motoring to a variety of islands brought us to beautiful hikes and beach walks. We loved the stop at Tenakee Springs - what special place. The beach fire and s'mores on the last night - with a perfect sunset - brought us back to camping days. We'd definitely come again!read more

We brought our entire family (3 generations!) That included slightly concerned immigrant parents concerned about being on the sea, their adventure children (me included), and a 2 year old. Bob and monique are funny, so accommodating, we felt like family and now consider them friends! Also what an adventure for every on the adventure spectrum. Look out summer Olympic s, I see our new paddle boarding merging With water skiing as an up and coming sport!read more

What an amazing time! Blain and Monqiue were the most incredible hosts - knowledgable, fun, caring. We sailed around from Juneau and saw amazing wildlife, hit some hot springs, and really got to enjoy the company of each other and Blain and Monique. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation, they made us feel completely at ease and taken care of, while also letting us get in on some of the fun in catching our food. Never had a better time and I can only hope I get to sail with the BOB and co. again!read more

Absolutely amazing Alaskan experience. Family trip with my wife and 3 teenagers and probably the best family vacation we've ever done. Sailed from Juneau from Sitka and brought back memories for a lifetime. Boat was incredible. Monique was fantastic. And Blaine wasn't bad either. 😉 Can't wait to go back!read more
