Seven Day Trips 2023

$3,850/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 sailing the fjords, hiking remote trails, seeing wildlife in their natural habitat, fishing for salmon or halibut, and kayaking among the myriad islands.

$15,400 exclusive charter for 2 people or $20,790* for the whole boat and you decide how many companions (* includes discount of 10%)


Eight Day Trips 2023

$4,395/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. Don’t have 10 days? Shorten a Glacier Bay trip by flying out of Gustavus.

$17,580 exclusive charter for 2 people or $23,733* for the whole boat


Ten Day Trips 2023

$5,495/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. Also works for an 8-day Glacier Bay trip.

$21,980 exclusive charter for 2 people or $29,673* for the whole boat


Glacier Bay Trips (10 Days) 2023

$5,995/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/5 nights exploring this crown jewel of the National Parks in Alaska. Don’t have 10 days? Shorten a Glacier Bay trip by flying out of Gustavus (same price as a non-Glacier Bay 10-day trip).

$23,980 exclusive charter for 2 people or $32,373* for the whole boat


Custom Sailing Trips Alaska

Additional days start at $550/person

Longer trips are available and encouraged! The only thing better than a week sailing in Alaska is 2 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.

What’s Not Included in the Cost of Your Trip:

  • An Alaska state fishing license – required for anglers unless younger than age 16.  You should obtain your own before we leave the dock.  This is reasonably priced and is available online from the link above. You will never eat fresher seafood, but you’ll need a license to catch it.
  • Airfare, ferry tickets, taxis, transfers or land accommodation before or after trip
  • Knee-high rubber boots. You will want these. Trust us.
