    • Dear Adventurers, An Un-Cruise adventure is unlike any other vacation. For many, it is a life changing experience. Nature and wildlife as you’ve never experienced it. As CEO and co-founder of the company, I’d like to share with you the inspiration behind the Un-Cruise. I grew up on boats, lived on boats, and have worked on boats most of my life. At 27 years old, I made a life changing decision to sell my marine business in Washington and take a job as captain of a day tour boat in Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park. My wife, baby boy and I made the long trip up on our Welcome sailboat—one of many adventures. Aboard! After a summer of showing visitors the grandeur of the glaciers, wildlife and wilderness and listening to park rangers talk about ecosystems, their vast knowledge seeped into my brain and opened my eyes to the natural world. The vast rivers of ice. The thundering sound when a chunk calves into the sea. Listening to the sound of whales blowing nearby. I was a changed man. I wanted to share its beauty with others in hopes of instilling that same wonder of nature and desire to conserve the wilderness for future generations. And that inspiration leads us to today. Uncover your Un–Cruise Adventure—then pack your bags and venture into some of nature’s most exciting playgrounds for active exploration, eye–to–eye wildlife encounters, and living history. I invite you to join us, and discover something special yourself. Choose to Un-Cruise! Dan Blanchard Captain & Owner2 | Un-Cruise™
    • The Un-Cruise Story Unrushed. Uncrowded. Unbelievable.What began in 1997 as yacht cruising in Alaska, pioneered by American Safari Cruises,has evolved and flourished into a style of exploration we call Un-Cruise Adventures—unmatched, hands-on small boat expeditions under the parent company of InnerSeaDiscoveries. Today, the Un-Cruise concept offers several styles to choose from: ActiveAdventures; Luxury Adventures; Heritage Adventures; and Charter Adventures—eachoffering an alternative to traditional cruising. Explore areas inaccessible to larger ships, stepashore in small communities, and get up-close with wildlife.Our mission is this: Provide our guests an enriching adventure travel experience and inspirean appreciation of local cultures and the natural world.Small group travel is the heart of what we do. Our small yachts and expedition boats serve asyour platform in Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, the Columbia & SnakeRivers, and in the coastal waters of Washington & British Columbia. Expert Captains and guideslead you on adventure—trekking into forests and engaging in local communities; kayakingand skiff rides through serene wilderness; exploring along shore and searching for wildlife.Un-Cruise Adventures are flexible and vary in order to limit impacts on fragile ecosystems.Filled with unspoiled encounters, they focus on activities and excursions that complement thewilderness, wildlife and culture in each destination—to change the way you see the world.

We take life in and give it back—and the best part… is sharing it all with you.6 | Un-Cruise™
    • Styles of Adventure Active Luxury Heritage Charter u u u Four is a pretty significant number, and after a lot of thought, more pondering, and then careful consideration, we arrived at four noteworthy styles of Un-Cruise Adventures: Active, Luxury, Heritage, and Charter.

And depending on which style you choose and which boat you’re on, the amenities and activities included may vary, but they are all exceptional.With each of our adventure styles, the atmosphere is always casual, the service attentive, and our bridge is open.

    • H Heritage Adventures Unfolding History Long, long ago and far away… there’s no actual time travel involved; however, you will transcend the modern era. Relive days of yore aboard a replica Victorian steamer on an unparalleled journey. History comes to life. Learn and feel the spirit of an illustrious past, with exhibits ashore and onboard Legacy reenactments, where our Legacy Leaders bring back heroes of yesteryear. Every destination has a beginning and when you sail aboard the Safari Legacy on one of our Heritage Adventures, we bring it all forward. Period décor defines an atmosphere as elegant and refined as the era; and modern amenities provide extra pampering.

    • Living HistoryVisions of the Past Nautical history, human history, the history of nations—it tells many stories. And history doesn’t just come to life—we bring it to life. It comes alive in historic ports steeped in legend and fact; on tours that guide you through time; during visits with local historians and native peoples who unfold the past; and with characters of yore who join you to share their stories… our Heritage Adventures beckon. Perhaps your very ancestors sailed the seas making discoveries of their own and meeting fascinating personalities. Sharing that same sense of adventure you could find yourself being greeted by Teddy Roosevelt, founderof the National Park Service; standing on the bow alongside John Muir, awed by thethunderous crack of a glacier; or finding inspiration, as a budding photographer andgeographer, listening to the tales of Eliza Scidmore.Timely ElementsYou won’t have to don buckskin or a coonskin cap, but you may encounter someonewho does.

Let us tailor a Charter Adventure with your special focus in mind—complete with activities, crew, and expedition staff.

Companies can tap into team building activities and U.S. flag tax breaks. The privacy afforded by a charter is unparalleled, and the natural settings and activities available for discretionary time are incomparable. Imagine finishing up a meeting or socializing and then stepping out on deck to photograph humpback whales or kayaking and sailing in a pristine cove.

    • Delivering Experience Adventure-After-Adventure Experts in the Field In addition to getting extraordinarily close to nature and wildlife, we ensure that all guests have opportunities to learn about what they are seeing and experiencing. We engage local experts from the National Park Service to interpret, narrate, and share dinner. U.S. Forest Service wilderness rangers sometimes kayak right up to our boats and hop aboard to talk about natural history and their own special bond with the land. And local historians bring history to life. Supplementing our onboard expedition team, Captains, and other staff, these interpreters provide a tremendous resource for our small contingent of guests. Onboard Team The best in the industry—our Captains, chefs, expedition team, hotel staff, and mates are individually selected not only for their outstanding knowledge, customer service, and safety skills, but also for their genuinely welcoming and enthusiastic personalities. Our Expedition and Legacy Leaders are experienced guides with advanced training in natural and/or cultural history.

    • Alaska’s Inside PassageSoutheast Alaska & Glacier Bay National ParkShaped by massive glaciers over millions of years, the temperate rainforest of Southeast Alaska (alsoknown as the Alaska Panhandle) reveals wildlife-rich fjords and spectacular scenery. The Tongass NationalForest—the largest in the US—is 16.8 million acres and constitutes the majority of area. Throughouthistory, the channels and waterways along Alaska’s Inside Passage have served as an important travelcorridor for Native Tlingit, Tsimshian, and Haida peoples and gold-rush era steamships.Recognized in 1986 as a biosphere reserve, in 1992 the 3.3-million-acre Glacier Bay National Park earnedits status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, 15,000-foot mountains rise straight out of the oceanand massive glaciers flow across the landscape, covering thousands of square miles. At different pointsin history, explorers John Muir, Joseph Whidbey, and Captain George Vancouver each discovered thisunforgettable natural laboratory—today, receding glaciers reveal a landscape that has been covered withice for tens of thousands of years.Rich in wildlife, brown and black bears, the endemic Alexander Archipelago wolf, Sitka black-tailed deer,humpback whales, orca, salmon, bald eagles, harlequin ducks, scoters, and marbled murrelets call the areahome. Other features of the region include the Alexander Archipelago and Misty Fjords National Monument.“We had the most amazing time of our lives and would recommend this cruise to anyone.” — ­ Anne R., Scotland Undiscovered. | 19
    • Alaska’s Heartland The Alaska Range & Denali National Park and Preserve Your Alaska experience wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Alaska’s interior. The Alaska Range is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Forming an east-west arc, it runs 400 miles from central Alaska to the White River in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Parts of the range are protected by central Alaska’s Denali National Park and Preserve and Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Low-elevation taiga forest, alpine tundra, and snowy mountains offer solitude, tranquility, and wilderness. Large and small wild animals roam these lands—grizzly bears, caribou, moose, and Dall’s sheep are just a few of the species that call the area home. Encompassing a 6-million-acre subarctic ecosystem of extraordinary beauty and astonishing wildlife is Denali National Park and Preserve, home to Mt. McKinley, whose 20,320-foot peak stands as the tallest in North America. Some of the densest bear populations in the state of Alaska are found down on Cook Inlet and the Kenai Peninsula near the entrance to Lake Clark National Park. Alaska’s Iditarod National Historic Trail runs northward through both parks all the way to the northernmost reaches of Nome. Combine your Un-Cruise Adventure with an Alaska Land Package or Hotel Stopover See page 58 for details.20 | Un-Cruise™
    • Timing is Everything! The Best Time to VisitThe “when to go” question comes up often. With Alaska travel, it’s almost always the first question asked.Rain, bears, birds, whales, salmon, insects, sunlight, temperature, snow level, flowers, northern lights—howmuch, how little, how long, what variety, how high, how low—these are all key interests when planning yourAlaskan vacation. It’s The Big Land, and therefore, there is no “cookie cutter” answer to these curiosities. The following guideline best describes when “skies are most blue” and when salmon change hue... “I’ve Un-Cruised twice and it is the best way to see Alaska; a small group up close and personal with a lot of whales, seals, sea lions, sea otters, bears, glaciers, etc.!” — Libby S., Paw Paw, MI ­ ­­ Undescribable. | 21

The island chain forms the largest marine sanctuary in the worldand one of the world’s most important habitats for humpback whales. Two-thirds of the NorthPacific population migrates to Hawaii each winter for breeding, calving, and nursing. We encountermany of these same humpbacks in Alaska where they feed during the summer months.Explore remote shorelines, mostly staying on the leeward side of the eastern-most Hawaiian Islandschain.
