Un-Cruise Adventures operates a fleet of eight small ships and boutique yachts carrying 22-88 guests on adventure and river cruises in Alaska, Hawaiian Islands, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, coastal Washington, British Columbia and Columbia & Snake Rivers. In 2016, eight departures will be offered in the Galápagos Islands and adventure cruising begins in Costa Rica/Panama.
Yachts and ships on adventure cruises carry two-person sea kayaks, paddle boards and motorized shore boats for close-up exploration. On a river cruise aboard a replica coastal steamer, the rich history of the rivers comes alive through included shoreside excursions, lively on board presentations and crew in period uniform. Enhancing the experience on all cruises are naturalist presentations and a friendly and knowledgeable crew.
The Un-Cruise Adventures Difference. Unrushed. Uncrowded. Unbelievable.
Un-Cruise Adventures doesn't cater to the typical cruise crowd who expect casinos, elaborate musicals and on-board waterparks. Instead, the fleet of eight ships takes passengers on eco-adventures to destinations inaccessible to larger ships. Itineraries might involve taking a "polar bear plunge" in Alaska, snorkeling with sea lions in the Sea of Cortez, or retracing the footsteps of Lewis and Clark on the Columbia River.
Built on a reputation of quality and experience, our small ship cruise explorations—intended to inspire and satisfy your curious nature—are an unbeatable combination of activity and discovery, service and expertise, awe-inspiring encounters, and value. Guests rave about the Un-Cruise experience and how genuine our crew is, often commenting that it’s not like a cruise at all. Yet the biggest endorsement from our guests: they come back, and they refer us to their friends.
