Work and Live Onboard While Experiencing the Beauty of Alaska, the Northwest and so much more!

UnCruise Adventures offers unique, seasonal employment opportunities for experienced and guest-service focused job seekers.

About UnCruise Adventures

Unlike jobs on land—the view from your window is a glacier, your afternoon break might be wilderness kayaking in bear country or wine tasting with guests along the Columbia River, and fellow crew become your family. Our small expedition boats, upscale yachts, and river cruising boat (carrying 22-88 guests) introduce adventurers to places, encounters, and activities sure to leave a lasting impression in each person’s life.

Destinations where we cruise:

  • Southeast Alaska 
  • Columbia & Snake Rivers 
  • Washington & British Columbia
  • The Hawaiian Islands 
  • Mexico’s Sea of Cortés 
  • Costa Rica & Panama

Getting Here and Getting Around

We provide flights to and from our ships from your home airport, at the company's expense.


For Fun

Depending on the assigned vessel and itinerary, employees have the opportunity to view wildlife; take photos; attend lectures; enjoy guided hikes or walks; experience local culture; kayak and paddle board; read; and watch movies or relax in the crew lounge.

Our Jobs

We do the bulk of our hiring between end of December through February for on board positions that mainly run from April through September. Outside of this time frame, we are always looking for good people to fill unexpected openings. Feel free to apply, and reapply, at any time throughout the year!

We have very limited options for winter work and most positions are filled by our summer crew.  If you have extensive experience in Hawaii or Baja, please see our website in September for possible openings.
