We love sailing and want to bring our adventures to everyone who wants to join. We added a fixed price to help offset boat costs. The skipper will not earn any money from these trips. At the end of the season we will donate leftover proceeds to a local youth sailing program.
We have an additional fee because diesel and grocery prices are unpredictable these days. Therefore, to be fair we have a fixed price that contributes toward boat maintenance and material costs and we have a flexible fee for food, diesel and harbor fees. That way you only cover what we actually spend on the trip.
Not included and at the expense of the participant: travel, meals, consumables, fuel, mooring fees, local taxes. We estimate $300 per person/per week for meals, consumables, fuel, mooring fees and local taxes. This will be collected upon arrival at the boat.
This is an active sailing event on the water in the Alaska wilderness. You will need to pack accordingly. Rain and cold weather are to be expected. Besides good outdoor gear like trousers, jackets, fleeces, and undergarments, you will need foul weather gear (trousers and jackets), good sailing boots, wool hats, and gloves. We will provide you with a life jacket and harness.
You don't need to have sailing experience for our base level adventure cruises. Outdoor experience and/or sailing experience is however recommended. For all other cruises basic sailing experience is required.
This depends on your dietary restrictions. It is difficult to accommodate different dietary restrictions on a small vessel. Please contact us to evaluate your situation before you book your trip.
Seward, Alaska, is located at the end of Resurrection Bay. You can get there by car, bus or train from Anchorage. A very scenic way to get to Seward is by train that drives through the scenic area connecting Anchorage and Seward.
The most convenient way to get to Kodiak is by airplane. You typically fly out of Anchorage to get to Kodiak.
Unalaska (Dutch Harbor) has an airport. Alaska Airlines has daily flights to and from Anchorage.
The weather in Alaska can change rapidly. You will need to expect rain and fog on a regular basis. The early season May - July is more dry than August / September.
It is possible that weather changes will cause us to stay in port for a few days longer. All our tours can be adjusted as needed but we won't cancel or refund because of bad weather.
When at anchor, you have time to relax, take in the scenery, and do whatever you want. We also have kayaks on board that can be used to either explore the surroundings or even go ashore where it is possible. As soon as we are out of the harbor we will lose cell service. So bring a book or two since you won't have access to the internet.
