Our company is a homegrown, Alaskan cruise-line owned by the Allen family from Sitka, Alaska. With the kind of knowledge that can only come from decades of exploring the famous “Inside Passage,” we take pride in providing a True Alaska experience for all who travel with us.
The season runs from approximately late-April to mid-September. During this beautiful time period in Southeast Alaska, we venture “off-the-beaten-path” on three newly renovated 40-74 passenger ships, experiencing thrilling wildlife and glacier viewing in world-renowned locations. In addition, travelers visit remote native villages, exclusive bays, and company-owned Orca Point Lodge- destinations many visitors to Alaska never get the opportunity to explore. As a member of our team, you will greatly enhance the guest experience on all of these adventures by ensuring the highest standards of safety and service.
