CEO of UnCruise Adventures, Captain Dan Blanchard, states, “One of the greatest joys of my life has been being a father. I want others to experience the closeness I’ve shared with my kids through nature, adventure, and small ships.

What better way to recognize an “UnDad” than to have them enjoy our unmatched experiences onboard?”
