Glacier Bay, Alaska

Visiting Glacier Bay, AK on your own private luxury yacht charter with your own captain, chef, and crew is the best way to experience its impressive and pristinely preserved wonder. This remote area lies in the Southeast region of Alaska and is accessible only by air or boat. Glacier Bay is renowned as a marine and terrestrial wilderness sanctuary, and visitors from all over the world come to experience the solitude of this untouched area. Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, most of which can only be experienced by traveling up the 65-mile-long waterway, is the most popular attraction of Glacier Bay. This limited access makes it ideal for a private yacht charter, where you can see the park’s 11 tidewater glaciers that reach into the sea.

The Alaskan Panhandle is an isolated part of the state, making it an excellent private getaway—and an even more private way to see it is via a private yacht charter. During the summer months, temperatures are milder than the frigid winter months, which makes it an optimal time to visit. It is best visited onboard a private yacht, in order to visit areas not easily accessible by the larger mega cruise ships. WiFi is very limited when sailing throughout the remote parts of Alaska, so this will give you a chance to truly disconnect from the world and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

Sea Kayaking In Alaska on Yacht charter

Sea Kayaking around Ice Floes

Charter the southern inside passage of Alaska on a crewed yacht charter to have a fabulous up front and personal experience, as part of the natural life of Alaska.  Sit in pods of whales bubble net feeding, watch glaciers calve into the waters below, see bears fishing for dinner, watch frolicking harbor seals, and rambling mountain goats and moose.  Visit with colonies of sea lions, sit in anchorages surrounded by Bald Eagles, fish for salmon, king crab, shrimp and halibut, and hike through virgin forests.  Alaska is a fabulous yacht charter destination unlike any other, and a private yacht charter on a yacht smaller than a mini cruise ship, is the way to be right smack dab in the middle of all that Alaska has to offer.

If you really want to see and experience the extraordinary natural splendor of Alaska, then only a crewed yacht charter will do!  Unlike large crew ships, a crewed charter yacht can slip right into little anchorages ringed by bald eagles perched in the surrounding trees, cruise closely along the coast with bears in easy sight, anchor in isolated areas at the mouth of a salmon or trout fly fishing stream, and sit right under a calving tidewater glacier.  This and everything else that is the Alaskan Experience is up front and personal on a crewed yacht charter in Alaska.

Chartering a Yacht in Alaska, Up Close and Personal

Chartering a yacht in Alaska alllows you to sit under the face of a calving glacier while huge ice chunks break off with a thunderous roar to drop into the waters below. Fish for “barn door” sized halibut and cast for salmon running upstream in pristine mountain streams. Sea kayak around harbor seals sunning on large ice floes. Sit in the middle of whales performing the age old “dance” of group bubble-net feeding. Enjoy isolated anchorages ringed with Bald Eagles perched in nearby trees. All of this and so much more is waiting for you on a crewed yacht charter in Alaska. Here at  Northrop and Johnson Yacht Charters, we know this very well, including knowing the yachts and crews for a great Alaskan Adventure Charter.

Chartering a yacht in Alaska puts you front and center up close and personal to all that nature has to offer in majestic Alaska, for an experience of a lifetime.  No where else in the world can the natural life of Alaska and the natural wonders of Alaska be found, and being on a private yacht charter rather than on a cruise ship has all of the advantages of being close to shore, close to the calving glaciers for a hands on experience.
