The UnCruise Adventures Experience At a Glance


UnCruise Adventures connects guests with nature and wildlife while exploring some of the most remote and scenic destinations on the West Coast of the Americas. Boutique yachts and small ships take 22 to 86 like-minded travelers on active adventures. Days are spent outside in nature discovering wildlife-rich shores and sea. Encounter spectacular wilderness: towering glaciers, scenic rivers and remote islands. Travelers forge connections with the place, the natural world and each other on a most uncommon adventure.

UnCruise Adventures offers explorations of exceptional quality, based on many years of experience. Destinations include the remote reaches of Alaska’s Inside Passage, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, the Hawaiian Islands, Galápagos Islands, Costa Rica, Panamá, Colombia, Belize, Guatemala, coastal Washington, and the Columbia & Snake Rivers.

Adventure cruise: Nine adventure vessels cast aside the tradition of rigid cruise ship schedules for flexible itineraries and few scheduled port times allow the vessels to seek out wildlife and maximize adventure activities—hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, skiff excursions. Yet guests also enjoy the more traditional meaning of cruising with gourmet cuisine, fine wines and specialty microbrews, hot tubs and other amenities.
