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.

Yacht Charter Alaska, Juneau

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…)

Alaska Yacht Charter – Great Alaska Yacht Charter Itinerary


Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska

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.

Charter Alaska – Tracy Arm and Sawyer Glaciers


Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
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.
