Small Ship Cruises to Alaska
Southeast Alaska is a place for discovery, and the David B will be returning to Alaska in the spring. Make plans early to find yourself surrounded by abundant wildlife and majestic scenery. With each new day there are new experiences. Alaska is a place where you’ll discover that you can find yourself in the solitude of wilderness. Here you’ll discover that humpback and orcas whales, seals, sea lions, and porpoises abound. You’ll have time to watch rafts of seabirds, listen to the quizzical vocalizations of ravens, and observe the power of bald eagles in flight. Enjoy watching for bears feeding on shore.
Unlike most cruises, we travel during daylight hours, so you won’t miss any of the sights. We search out quiet secluded anchorages that brings you into the heart of the Alaskan wilderness. When anchored you’ll have plenty of time to go ashore for wilderness hikes or take a kayak out for an easy paddle.
Our scheduled Alaska trips depart from either Petersburg or Juneau and are 8-days long. We also offer custom private yacht tours for as long as you’d like. Best of all, our trips are limited to groups of eight or fewer.
A Culinary Adventure Aboard the M/V David B
Another thing you will discover about cruising aboard the David B, is that our food is amazing. On all of our trips, you will be treated to gourmet meals prepared on board. Enjoy just-out-of-the-oven sourdough bread and a bowl of Whiskey Crab soup on deck while you watch whales in Frederick Sound or wake up to fresh squeezed orange juice, handmade croissants, (from scratch aboard and never from a box or tube!) fresh fruit and caribou sausage for breakfast. Each day aboard the David B is special and we work to make sure your meals are as spectacular as the wildlife and scenery that surrounds you in this truly Great Land.
You never know what you’ll experience on the David B. The video below was taken at anchor in Sanford Cove in the Tracy Arm/Fords Terror wilderness. We’d been having dinner when a young humpback whale came to join us.
Our Alaska Inside Passage Cruises are one-way and depart from either Petersburg or Juneau and arriving in either Juneau or Petersburg.
