ABOARD THE URSA MAJOR
This is the cruise ship alternative for travelers whom like activity and adventure. We feel Alaska is not a shopping destination, but a chance to experience nature untrammeled by people. The richness of the environment will awe you. The health of this ecosystem is evident by its large populations of humpback whales, brown and black bears, and birds, particularly waterfowl.
Ursa Major is an ideal platform to experience Alaska on your own terms and in comfort. Our voyages are typically a week or more and entirely customizable. We have 3 staterooms to accommodate groups of 1-6 with room to relax. Our food is sumptuous, in fact we catch our own shrimp and crab. Our dinners are a welcome culmination to the long days we spent kayaking, whale watching, hiking and cruising.
The Ursa Major is a wood built yacht, crafted by shipwrights in Norway in 1972. She has traveled the world, she has had adventures both famous and infamous. For over a decade Ursa Major has been our gateway to Alaska. Come and visit us, not to just see alaska but to experience it.
