Alaska Private Touring Yacht
If you want to get off the road, away from the crowds and closer to the real Alaska, then we invite you to step on board the Northern Explorer. The captain and crew of our beautiful 68' foot Alaska private touring yacht are dedicated to providing an unequaled class of luxurious service and helping you create unforgettable memories in this legendary destination.
Northern Explorer Adventures specializes in intimate, all-inclusive trips for small groups of up to 6 guests. We offer individualized itineraries for 4-day/3-night and 5-day/4-night cruises as we traverse southcentral Alaska’s awe-inspiring Prince William Sound. Custom trips of one to seven days are also available upon request.
Our luxurious Alaska private touring yacht is designed to maximize both your comfort and opportunities to experience the breathtaking beauty of Prince William Sound. Onboard you will find a comfortable salon area, formal dining area, ample galley, spotless, glassed-in, heated viewing salon, top deck fire pit; numerous comfortable seating areas, perfect for cocktails and conversation; and three luxurious staterooms, each with a private ensuite bath.
Alaska is an immense state and we want you to make the most of your time here. Our private touring yacht is based in Whittier and Seward, Alaska, offering convenient access to Alaska’s largest international airport, located in Anchorage. We are happy to assist you with transportation arrangements to and from the vessel with our friendly shuttle service – just let us know when you make your booking. Our partners at the beautiful Lakefront Anchorage Alaskan lodge also offer exclusive rates for our guests wishing to stay in Anchorage before or after their trip. Click here for details.
The Northern Explorer is the only luxury small-group cruise in Prince William Sound. We specialize in intimate yacht voyages for up to 6 passengers – far less than the other small cruise companies, ensuring you will enjoy the most attentive, personalized service.
Custom itineraries personalized to your interests and abilities set us apart from other Alaska cruise companies. During your 3- or 4-night Alaska private yacht tour, choose from excursions ranging from coastal kayaking, wilderness hiking, fishing, photo safaris, wildlife viewing, gold panning and more.
The Northern Explorer is the only Alaska private touring yacht in Prince William Sound with a professionally trained chef manning the galley. Throughout your cruise, you will indulge in the freshest, highest-quality, five-star cuisine, as well as local Alaska beers and fine wines.
Luxury accommodations are another point that sets the Northern Explorer apart from your other Alaska cruise options. We offer three beautifully appointed staterooms complete with private ensuite baths.
Our vessel is specifically designed to optimize your sightseeing, wildlife viewing and photography opportunities. Sit in the protection of our spotless glassed-in viewing deck, watch the scenery from our heated salon, stand along the rails on the bow of the ship, or relax next to the fire pit on the top deck. No matter where you choose, you will have prime viewing of the panorama of passing mountains, glaciers, wildlife and pristine waters.
On the Northern Explorer, you’ll see more, stay longer and get closer. The size of our vessel allows us to access remote locations that many other ships cannot – and we spend more time at our destinations than the larger cruise ships. Plus, we get you closer, offering unparalleled viewing of towering glaciers, bears foraging on the shoreline, massive whales breaching and more.
Our U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captain and crew are some of the most experienced, knowledgeable and personable in the industry. The boat is equipped with all U.S. Coast Guard safety gear. And with a crew of 4 and a maximum of 6 guests, we ensure you’ll receive the most attentive, personalized service.
Your all-inclusive yacht tour includes every detail, including luxury accommodations, gourmet meals, Alaska beer and wine, outdoor gear and expert guides for all excursions.
The Northern Explorer is a low-impact, conservation-style cruise. As we travel the pristine waters of Alaska, we strive to leave the smallest footprint possible by following best practices such as:
