Brown Bear Fishing Salmon

It is summer in Alaska and the salmon, true to their genetic plan are returning to their birth stream to spawn. The bays and waterways are teaming with salmon. What is your interest, King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon? All are swimming in the waters now in Alaska, and the best way to fish is on a yacht charter. For on a charter, you can move from fishing area to fishing area, visit the mouth of streams in the tender, fly fish from the shores, or troll from the back of the yacht. In fact, on a yacht charter, you can be fishing simply by dropping a line off of the stern, while cruising through the scenic Inside Passage, sipping on a glass of wine. Let the simple act of cruising, while enjoying the scenery, do the work for you and enjoy a fresh salmon dinner of the “catch of the day”. (more…)

Summer cruising in Alaska starts in mid May, and ends in mid September. The interested Charterer always asks what the best dates are to choose for a charter in Alaska. The surprise answer is that your choice of what dates to pick for crewed yacht charter should depend more on what you want to see and do rather than on what the weather does. In online weather information, you might see that August and July are supposed to be drier than June. And, most people think that August will be warmer than June. In actuality, this all varies from summer to summer in Alaska, with no rhyme or reason. The dates you choose to book your crewed yacht charter in Alaska during the summer charter season should be based on the wild and marine life that you might want to see, and the activities you might want to do, as the migration patterns of wild and marine life is far more predictable than the weather.

Sawyer Glacier, Alaska

Tracy Arm is a 23 mile long Fjord capped by the twin Sawyer Glaciers, coastal tidewater glaciers; which are a long river of solid fresh water ice, centuries old, flowing from the mountains to the sea. The “rivers” move at a rate of several feet a day. As the glaciers crawl along, when reaching the salt water of Tracy Arm, the glaciers “calve” , and huge chunks of the face ice break off and plunge into the salt water of Tracy Arm. The ice chunks that separate from the face of the glaciers can be several stories high and wide, and break from the face with a loud cracking noise, followed by a terrific splash and radiating wave. The twin Sawyer Glaciers on Tracy Arm each calve at a rate of once an hour, so when visiting, one can almost be assured of seeing this age old glacier action.

The time to book your summer yacht charter in Alaska is now. The Alaska season is short and often booked a year in advance. The summer season is mid May to mid September. Each summer month is great. Weather is expected to be slightly cooler and drier in May and June, and slightly warmer and rainier in July and August, however the weather in Alaska is constantly changing during the season even in one day, where temperatures can be 50 degrees F to 80 degrees F in one day.

The real choice of when to go, is about what you want to see and do. There are generally always whales, however the fishing seasons do change, from Cutthroat Trout to various species of salmon throughout the summer. Bears are more easily seen in earlier summer along the shore lines as they search for food, moving up into the mountains, along the salmon streams to fish for dinner later in the summer as the salmon begin to run upstream, with the heaviest salmon runs towards the end of the summer.

Juneau, Alaska

Juneau is only one of many Alaskan cities that can only be accessed by air or sea. Completely surrounded on three sides by glaciers, Juneau opens up to the ocean as a port city, spilling from the mountains to the sea. While this city does have roads and cars, there are no roads leading into Juneau, which makes for a bustling port city, and a great location to begin or end your charter. (more…)

Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska

Chartering in Alaska is a lifetime experience, and one of the only ways to be one on one with the spectacular wild and marine life. Private yacht charter brings you close to the scenery, anchoring in secluded coves, ringed by Bald Eagles, sitting next to a pod of whales bubble net feeding, watching bear fish from the streams, or fishing yourself for salmon and halibut. Rather than high in the air by plane or way offshore by cruise ship, be in the middle of the action, in private yacht charter. There are numerous itineraries throughout Alaska. The following offers an excellent slice of Alaska from Juneau to Sitka.

Tracy Arm and Sawyer Glacier

For any itinerary out of Juneau, it would be a shame to miss a cruise up Tracey Arm to see the north and south side of Sawyer Glacier crawling bit by bit down the north and south arm of Tracy Fjord. Sawyer Glacier is one of the few glaciers abutting salt water. It is an actively calving glacier sending bits of ice floating to the mouth of Tracy Arm announcing the glaciers presence at the top of the fjord.
