The UnCruise Adventures Story  

Fewer Spaces and Open Spaces. Sailing Since 1996 and celebrating 25 years of adventure in 2021.

Alaska was the birthplace of UnCruise Adventures and it continues to be wide open for exploration. Almost 25 years later, innovation continues to be at the core of our motto. We’re serious about your fun and driven by a commitment to leaving the charted course and really experiencing what the world has to offer. UnCruise Adventures operates from its offices at historic Fishermen's Terminal in Seattle, Washington and in Juneau, Alaska.

Working together, we've learned a lot along the way! We’re proud to have shared this wild world with so many adventuresome guests. See the history of our journey.

Our Mission 

To provide our guests an enriching adventure travel experience and inspire an appreciation of local cultures and the natural world.

We understand that ecosystems are fragile yet important environments. And we know first-hand the impact our adventures have on sustaining local communities. One of the key components of our company’s mission statement is to actively promote environmental protection through education, actions, and initiatives that promote responsible travel.

From the young to the young-at-heart, and hailing from many different places and walks of life, our guests share unique points-of-view and experiences on board. They find commonalities and create lifelong friends.


Over 20 Years of Uncompromising Success  

We started cruising in Alaska with just one yacht, but since, we’ve grown up a bit—more ships, new destinations, a broader range of itinerary choices—but what hasn’t changed is the heart and soul of who we are and what we offer you. Memorable adventures in jaw-dropping scenic places. It’s the people, the activities, the spirit of adventure.

We create unparalleled value. From your very first inquiry, expect personalized service and expertise—and a host of benefits that make us unique.

Company History in a Snapshot  

Company Culture  

A company’s culture, core values, stance on discrimination, how we treat one another—it all matters. At least we think so. Get to know us and become an UnCruise Citizen.

UnCruise Adventures denounces all forms of racism, bigotry, and discrimination. We stand in solidarity with our employees, community members, and leaders in the fight to end systemic and passive racism, social injustice, and violence against the Black community and all who suffer from racism.

Three of our company's core values are “Do the right thing,” “Be good to each other,” and “Get a little better every day.” These words are a start, but it is never enough to just say it—we must live it! We commit today and every day to learn, support, and play an active role in dismantling racism, systemic oppression, and discrimination in our world.
