Magnificent scenery is only one reason to charter a yacht in Alaska this coming summer. The experience of outstanding wild life, marine and bird life is unlike any other worldwide cruising location except the Galapagos. Of course, natural life in the Galapagos is very different as a warm water location than natural life in Alaska as a cold water location, with the only real cross over being sea lions. dolphins, and whales.
In Alaska prepare to see humpback whales, orcas, harbor seals, dolphins, sea lions, and waters teeming with salmon, halibut, crabs, and shrimp. On land are bears, moose, goats, and puffins perching on coastal rocks; while over head American Bald Eagles soar through the skies.
Hike through virgin forests, where a thick layer of moss covers the forest floor, Fish for various species of salmon, and barn door sized halibut. Fly fish for salmon spawning upstream. Watch humpback whales perform their age-old group bubble net dance when feeding. Experience huge tidewater glacier faces calve into the seas below and sea kayak around ice floes to chip off hundreds of years old glacier ice for on board drinks.
Days fly by on charter in Alaska with so much to see and do, and for seafood aficionados, enjoy enormous amounts of very fresh seafood plucked right from the water to enjoy on board,. If Alaska is on your bucket list for this coming summer, now is the time to book a terrific crewed yacht charter. Seeing Alaska on a crewed charter yacht which can hug the coast, and sit next to a pod of whales bubble net feeding, is a far more rewarding experience than being on a cruise ship offshore in the required deeper waters needed for the vessel size.
