Alaska is almost unbelievable
Alaska is breathtaking
A photo might capture the essence of Alaska, but not the emotion of standing on deck as mist from a waterfall cascading three-thousand feet down a glacier-polished granite wall settles onto your face. The way to really experience the emotion and the powerful nature of Alaska is to immerse yourself in it — right up close. To walk quietly among the lichen-draped trees in an ancient forest. To breathe in the forest’s rich mossy air as overhead a raven’s wing brushes past mature boughs. To paddle past the fantastic shaped icebergs where perched bald eagles watch your every move. To suddenly spot a brown bear, previously hidden at the forest’s edge, make a gentle movement, and for a moment you watch each other closely, before she blends back into the greens, browns and shadows of the old-growth forest. To listen to a humpback mother’s song and clicks, while her growing calf playfully breaches and splashes.
These are the kind of moments we can share with you.
The magic of these moments only happens when you have the time to pause, to look around and to take in all that surrounds you. The pace of our small ship cruises on the David B is slow. We focus on the spaces between the destinations –the experiences, the emotions, and the nature. This means you’ll see more, you’ll feel more, and you’ll gain more.
Check out what it’s like to cruise on the David B with some highlights from recent and past cruises. Or browse through some photo galleries from our cruises in Alaska, the Inside Passage and San Juan Islands, as well as some photos of our great gourmet meals cooked on the David B’s wood-fired cookstove.
David B’s New Pilothouse!
Our 2017 season is going to be very special with the addition of the David B’s new pilothouse.
What makes this special will be a spacious interior for wildlife and scenery viewing, inside access to staterooms, more lounging area, and covered outside decks. We’re especially excited about this project because it will return the wheelhouse to its original foredeck location. For more videos and updates visit our Tin Hat Project page.
