Alaska Adventures

The Ursa Major is a unique trawler yacht with seventeen years of experience chartering in southeast Alaska and is the perfect vessel for your Alaska adventure. We specialize in customized 8-day adventure trips for 4-6 guests in southeast Alaska.  Our Alaska trips are multi-activity trips, and may include sea kayaking, hiking, and wildlife viewing.  Relax aboard the Ursa Major between activities as we visit deepwater fjords, calving glaciers, and isolated anchorages seldom seen by visitors.
We feel one of the best ways to experience southeast Alaska is to explore its pristine bays and shorelines by sea kayak.  We have a fleet of eight sea kayaks for paddling amongst the unspoiled beauty of Tongass National Forest, the largest intact temperate rainforest in North America.
Each one of our trips between the historic Alaskan towns of Sitka and Petersburg are uniquely tailored to your needs as we spend our days sea kayaking, hiking, wildlife viewing, or simply relaxing aboard the Ursa Major.  We welcome multi-generational groups, and offer something for everyone on our trips.
Humpback whales abound in southeast Alaska as they return to their summer home for socialization and feeding.  Brown bears, Stellar sea lions, sea otters, killer whales, and assorted marine birds are common species we have the pleasure of viewing.
Your crew is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and eager to make this trip something exceptional for you.  Join us aboard the Ursa Major this summer for the trip of a lifetime!
