Seven Day Trips

$3195/person

Seven day/ six night sailing trips are a great way to see incredible Southeast Alaska. We can’t think of a better vacation! You will get the whole experience of hiking remote trails, seeing wildlife in their natural habitat, fishing for salmon or halibut, kayaking among the myriad islands, and sailing the fjords.  Your cost for this trip with a full boat (6) is $2876/person.


Eight Day Trips

$3545/person

Some trips are better with an extra day to explore glacial fjords, sail the breezes, fish for halibut, or watch frolicking humpback whales. Eight day/ seven night sailing trips allow a more leisurely pace and we can get to some really incredible places like the infamous Ford’s Terror.  Your cost for this trip with a full boat (6) is $3191/person.


Ten Day Trips

$4245/person

Ten days/ nine nights allow more of everything. More history, exploring, wildlife, fishing, hiking, kayaking, sailing, etc.. The itinerary is flexible and will be customized to your interests. Your cost for this trip is $3821/person with a full boat.


Glacier Bay Trips (10 Days)

$4,995/person

This is the country’s premier park and – lucky us – only a limited number of boats are allowed each day.  The scenery is fantastic and you will not forget the thunder of tons of ice calving off the face of the glaciers, or the abundant wildlife! We sail to and from Juneau on this ten day trip spending two days traveling to Glacier Bay National Park on either end with 6 full days/night exploring this crown jewel of the National Parks in Alaska.  The cost for this exclusive trip with a full boat is $4496/person.


 

Custom Sailing Trips Alaska

Additional days start at $350/person

Longer trips are available and encouraged! The only thing better than a week sailing in Alaska is two weeks aboard Sailboat BOB! Longer time periods offer the opportunity to explore a larger area for more hiking, kayaking, sailing, fishing, or other activities with less time spent in travel each day. We can also arrange float-plane transfers to maximize your time with us. Additional cost, but wow, what a way to end a sailing trip!

No matter if it is a 14-day trip or only a 5 day trip that appeals to you, we’ll try to fit it in. But call quick so you get the days you’d like.

WE CAN STILL CUSTOMIZE TRIP DATES

Best book early to get a June – August trip next year.

Coverage is affordable and there are a number of options and pricing levels available.
