Set out aboard a deluxe catamaran to explore the island-studded waters and rugged coastline of Sitka Sound. Framed between stunning views of volcanic Mount Edgecumbe and the snow-capped peaks of Baranof Island, the Sound is one of the most spectacular wilderness settings in Alaska. Your knowledgeable captain and expedition naturalist will help you design a unique photo safari and beach trek adventure that incorporates your personal interests.
Wildlife is plentiful here, and your captain has a profound knowledge of the preferred habitats and movement of whales, sea otters, sea lions, porpoise, seals, brown bears and bald eagles. He also knows the best places to explore and photograph awe-inspiring volcanic formations, glacier-carved peaks, secluded passages and other natural wonders. Weather permitting, you may wish to circumnavigate the rugged coast of St. Lazaria National Wildlife Refuge breeding grounds for thousands of seabirds, including puffins, auklets and murres.
An expert naturalist will accompany you as you go ashore on remote islands to beachcomb, explore tide pools and savor the peacefulness of an untouched place. Your vessel is a 30-foot, expedition-style catamaran with a spacious, heated cabin, equipped with deluxe seating, a restroom and galley. Viewing opportunities are facilitated by large wrap-around windows and an expansive open-air deck, along with a special bow-landing door to allow easy beach access.
