Our focus is to provide our guests a uniquely authentic experience that will provide a life time of memories. Our itineraries are carefully crafted to showcase the very best of each region in which we operate.

We love being able to introduce our guests to places we have discovered over our years of exploration. On our classic vessels, literally each one a one of a kind, we are able to provide the perfect conveyance for a return to the age of exploration. Why invest in a trip that feeds only a few of your senses? Why not spend what may be your one trip to the Pacific NW, Alaska or Baja being able to fully embrace; not just the sights that every guest on every big cruise ship will see, but also the cliff rimmed coves, the stunningly silent and calm anchorages where the only sounds are nesting birds, or the explosive breaths of passing whales or surrounded by the star-lit night the slapping of hundreds of mobula rays on the water in the Sea of Cortez? Why not travel on a vessel that will stop for hours, engines off, drifting with an inquisitive Humpback who is intent on making eye contact with us or watching orcas engage in hunting? Why not discover the intimacies of each ecosystem as you foray into the different wildernesses on foot? Instead of going off your diet for your vacation, why not find out how amazingly delicious healthy food can be? We are one of the very few boats operating in the PNW, SE Alaska and Baja that are true family operations. We are totally and completely committed to making your vacation the best experience it can be...
