Rates & Dates

We are happy to be accepting reservations for 2017 and 2018. Glacier Bay & Endicott Arm/Dawes Glacier trips are in high demand.

Our schedule is below, but we still have some flexibility on dates and ports of call.  

Rates & Dates

We offer a variety of trip lengths and customize each trip to your interests. Trips typically sail between Sitka, Petersburg, and Juneau. All of these cities can be reached by daily Alaska Airlines jet service or the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry System. 


Seven Day Trips

$3065/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 is $2758.50/person with a full boat (6).


 

Ten Day Trips

$4095/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 $3685.50/person with a full boat.


 

Glacier Bay Trips (10 Days)

$4,675/person

We sail to and from Juneau on this ten day trip spending four days traveling to Glacier Bay National Park.  This is one of the country’s premier parks and lucky us; only a limited number of boats are allowed to enter each day.  The scenery is fantastic and you will not forget the thunder of tons of ice calving off the face of the glaciers!  The cost for this exclusive trip is $4207.50/person  with a full boat.


 

Custom Sailing Trips

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

We are one of few boats permitted to travel the majestic waters or Glacier Bay National Park in summer.  The trip journeys through rich whale-waters of Chatham and Icy Straits where humpback whales group together to feed on herring, packs of orca hunt sealions, and halibut are often hooked. We take you to four stunning tidewater calving glaciers along the way as we scan the shores for brown bears, wolves, mountain goats, and hundreds of growly Steller’s sealions. Two cabins still available. Juneau to Juneau RT. Ten amazing days.
