On a small ship Alaska cruise with Custom Alaska Cruises, you become immersed in the story of the Alaska wilderness. Whales splash water on the ship’s deck. Porpoises play in the ship’s wake. Eagles soar overhead watching for their next catch. Seals relaxing in the sun float by on icebergs. Bears clambering through the forest stop to snack on berries not far from where you are anchored.
You experience these wonders only because you are on a small ship, tucked in close and unobtrusively where nature allows you to participate.
Want a closer look at a glacier or beach? Take a kayak or paddleboard right from the ship or hop aboard our tender and we’ll take you to shore – or just closer for a better view.
When you’re not experiencing the wilderness, you’ll be experiencing life aboard your cozy ship home: you may be dining on freshly prepared gourmet food, sipping a complimentary glass of wine, relaxing with a good book, napping on luxury linens in your private stateroom, listening to tales of adventure from your experienced crew members, or enjoying the company of your fellow guests.
While our ships can welcome up to 12 guests, most of our cruises see 5-8, which creates an intimate, once-in-a-lifetime experience on board.
