New Small-Ship Cruise Itineraries and Charters Offer Extraordinary Exploration Opportunities in Alaska

AdventureSmith Explorations is offering new experiences in rarely visited areas for travelers to have diverse wildlife encounters and view dramatic scenery
AdventureSmith Explorations, the leader in small-ship adventure cruises, is making it easier than ever to explore less frequented areas of Alaska with new cruise itineraries and charters. This summer, travelers can circumnavigate Prince William Sound for the first time aboard a 36-guest yacht, participate in a new ice-focused itinerary in the Inside Passage, or design their own private experience of North America’s premier wilderness aboard an 8-12 passenger chartered ship.

“AdventureSmith Explorations has been a pioneer in small-cruise ship exploration in Alaska for more than 20 years, so it’s exciting to continue offering travelers new ways to explore areas that only small ships can access,” said AdventureSmith Explorations founder and president Todd Smith. “The new itineraries we’re offering provide unique access to wildlife, scenery and Alaskan villages not often visited.”

Expansive New Itinerary in Prince William Sound
AdventureSmith has operated in Prince William Sound since its founding in 2003, but the new Prince William Sound Explorer itinerary travels farther afield than other small ships in the region. Aboard the 36-guest Safari Explorer, for the first time, travelers will circumnavigate Prince William Sound rather than traveling along only the western half of the sound. This new route increases the chances of viewing resident orca pods, as well as humpback, gray, blue and minke whales.

Beginning and ending in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, travelers have easy and expanded air access from the lower 48 and the ability to combine pre- or post-cruise land tours to extend their stay. Home to the densest concentration of tidewater glaciers, fascinating history, diverse wildlife, dramatic scenery and one-of-a-kind Alaskan villages, Prince William Sound offers a feeling of genuine remoteness and a perfect balance of adventure and tranquility. Sailings along this new circumnavigational route begin May 31, 2024.

New Ice-Focused Tour of the Inside Passage

Offered by a multi-generational family of local Alaska natives known for their authentic, personal itineraries, Ice of the Inside Passage is a new southbound variation of AdventureSmith’s popular Inside Passage Sojourn. The most in-depth glacier offering to date, travelers will have opportunities to get up close to the Margerie, Grand Pacific, Mendenhall, Sawyer, South Sawyer, Dawes and LeConte glaciers all in just over a week aboard the 49-guest Baranof Dream. Also included is a high-speed jet boat adventure to the LeConte Glacier and a call to the remote Alaska Native village of Kasaan.

Customizable Summer 2024 Charters Available
Availability aboard 8-12 passenger charter ships is a unique option for travelers interested in designing their own private tour of North America’s premier wilderness. Generally booked well in advance, it’s not too late to secure one of AdventureSmith’s Alaska yacht charters for summer 2024. Ideal for those seeking the ultimate in customization and savings on per-cabin costs, charter yachts are also perfect for every group — from friend groups to multi-generational families — and offer accommodation levels from simple to luxurious.
