On a private Alaska cruise ship, you can help set the route, but certain vessels are best equipped and staffed for certain areas.

Deals on Alaska Yacht Charters

How to get the best deal on Alaska charter cruises? Booking early is a must to secure vessels for charter space, but booking a charter often equals significant per-person discounts off standard cabin rates. Our experts know the nuances and span of private Alaska cruise options in the region and can link you to the latest Alaska yacht charter discounts. View our  Alaska cruise deals  to see what’s currently on sale. 

Alaska Yacht Charter Rates 

A full-boat charter has many advantages over an independently booked cruise, price being a big advantage in addition to exclusivity and flexibility. The trips listed on our website show rates per person, for travelers booking individual staterooms on prescheduled departures. But when you book a full Alaska yacht charter, each person will save 10 to 30% off these regular per-person cruise rates. 

Alaska yacht charters are typically planned and contracted at least one year in advance of the cruise departure date, but as long as space is available charter yachts in Alaska can still be secured. Charter rates vary by destination, season and availability. Off-season Alaskan yacht charters garner the greatest savings while high-season dates should be secured a year or more in advance. To get a jump-start on charter research, read our 7-step guide How to Charter a Yacht then consult our Alaska yacht charter specialists for the ultimate guidance.

Charter Terms & Conditions 

Terms and conditions are sometimes more strict with Alaska charter cruises (and a charter anywhere, for that matter) than they are for individual bookings. Expect to pay a charter rate that remains the same, whether or not you have enough travelers to fill all the staterooms. Cancellation terms usually require a nonrefundable deposit and payments as the cruise date approaches. Some Alaska charter boats require that one person be responsible for signing the charter agreement. Group travel insurance policies are highly recommended when considering a private Alaska cruise. Our experts will work with you and your group to make the charter process seamless and transparent. 

Combine Your Private Alaska Cruise with Land 

Complement your Alaska yacht charter with time on land, or plan a custom adventure based at a wilderness lodge. We offer scenic locations, authentic cuisine and unique lodge access by way of floatplane, helicopter, raft or boat. Visit Denali National Park as few visitors do, stay at the only lodge within Kenai Fjords National Park or opt to arrive to the most remote of lodges in true Alaska style—by floatplane. View all of our Alaska land tours to find a good fit for your interests.

If you are interested in larger vessels, private group departures and/or private stays at wilderness lodges, visit our Alaska trips  page. Additional Alaska charter boats may be available for your dates, so contact us for the most up-to-date options for custom Alaska cruises.

Each day ends in a quiet secluded anchorage.

You will have the opportunity to go for a hike or kayak along the shore viewing birds, marine life, and even Alaskan brown bears. Or you can stay aboard and watch a video, listen to music, or read a book from our extensive library.

We are all in awe of the experience we had aboard the Alaskan Story. We all agreed the yacht and the crew are perfect. The fishing and animal sightings were phenomenal.

Southeast Alaska encompasses a labyrinth of winding channels, passages, fjords, bays and straits that extend 350 nautical miles north from Ketchikan to Skagway.

The Tongas National Forest makes up around 80% of this region, a breath taking area of natural beauty where mountains line the path as your charter yacht cruises north past Petersburg to Juneau and Sitka. Elsewhere, Admiralty Island with the largest concentration of Brown Bears in the world and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is the largest national park in the United States.

Superyacht Charters in Alaska Depending on what time of year you wish to go, there are a number of different itinerary options available as well as varying yachts that will be suitable for cruising there. For charterers wanting to get the full adventure yachting experience, renting an ice-classed expedition yacht during the freezing winter months will offer the ultimate exploration vacation.

Yacht Charter Alaska

Alaska Yacht Charter - Tracy Arm Cliffs, Alaska, beautfiful lush greenery on cliffs above clear waters

Cruise Alaska and adventure beyond luxury. A yacht charter through the Inside Passage is an experience akin to the final frontier.

An Alaska yacht charter is ideal for those longing for pure stillness, tranquillity, and untouched wilderness. Cruise Alaska, the northernmost state of the United States, on a luxury yacht and navigate lush yet rugged natural landscapes that offer some of the most incredible scenery in the world. Breeze past giant glaciers and witness the region’s wonderful wildlife. You’ll set your sights on bears, whales, and bald eagles in their natural habitats. Spend a day fishing for fresh wild salmon or hiking mountains. Alaska is quickly becoming an “it” destination for adventurous cruisers who want to experience nature at its most pristine on their private yacht charter. The tranquillity and rawness of the Alaskan wilderness are a unique change from typical yacht charter destinations. An Alaska yacht charter will exceed your expectations with adventure, relaxation, and luxury elements.

Where can I cruise to during an Alaska yacht charter?

Alaska’s Inside Passage is considered one of the most scenic and popular stretches of coastline, snaking between the mainland and off-lying islands and islets to the southeast. Cruising Alaska’s Inside Passage is as far removed as you can get from the favored Mediterranean and Caribbean superyacht cruising grounds. Alaska is the largest state in the U.S. regarding land and water, and the area is so vast that you can usually steer a solitary route, enjoying the complete wilderness onboard your charter yacht. This destination is perfect for charterers looking for completely secluded cruising grounds to unwind and be at peace with a group of friends or family aboard.

Hotspots to explore on an Alaska yacht charter

Exploring Alaska on a yacht offers a plethora of breathtaking locations to visit. Apart from popular destinations like Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords National Park, and the Inside Passage, here are some other locations worth exploring:

  • Tracy Arm Fjord This narrow fjord is located south of Juneau and is known for its towering cliffs, tidewater glaciers, and stunning scenery.
  • Kodiak Island Known for its rugged landscapes, Kodiak Island offers excellent opportunities for wildlife and bird watching, including bears, eagles, and whales.
  • Wrangell-St. Elias National Park America’s largest national park is a remote wilderness area with towering mountains, massive glaciers, and abundant wildlife.
  • Petersburg This charming fishing town on Mitkof Island offers a glimpse into Alaska’s fishing culture and is a gateway to the Stikine River and LeConte Glacier.
  • Sitka Rich in history and culture, Sitka offers opportunities to explore Russian and Tlingit heritage, as well as outdoor activities like hiking and kayaking.
  • Haines Nestled between the Chilkat and Chilkoot Mountains, Haines is a picturesque town with opportunities for outdoor adventures such as hiking, fishing, and wild animal viewing.
  • Baranof Island Located in the Alexander Archipelago, Baranof Island boasts stunning scenery, hot springs, and abundant wildlife.
  • Yakutat This remote coastal community offers access to the Hubbard Glacier, the largest tidewater glacier in North America, and excellent fishing and surfing opportunities.
  • Gustavus The gateway to Glacier Bay National Park, Gustavus offers opportunities for wild animal spotting, hiking, and kayaking in one of Alaska’s most iconic wilderness areas.

Best Yachts for Charter in Alaska

Motor yachts for charter in alaska, sailing yachts for charter in alaska, alaska charter faqs, where is alaska .

Alaska – also known as The Last Frontier – is located on the northwest extremity of North America, bordering British Columbia and Yukon in Canada. It is the 49th and largest state in the U.S. It was admitted to the union in January 1959. Alaska is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Bering Sea, the Chukchi Sea, and the Beaufort Sea, offering some of the world’s most breathtaking coastal scenery. Alaska is the only U.S. state to border two nations. 

Where can I embark on an Alaska yacht charter?

A luxury charter in this region typically begins across the border in Canada’s Vancouver or Seattle, Washington, in the U.S. before cruising up the coastline and across the border into Alaska; alternatively, you can choose to board your luxury yacht in Alaska’s capital, Juneau. Wherever you decide to embark, as soon as you set sail, the world drifts far into the distance. On an Alaska yacht charter, it is all about timeless, majestic landscapes and the remarkable wildlife that has inhabited the area for thousands of years. From ancient snowfields, glaciers, and fjords to soaring eagles in lofty mountains, bears in dense forests to pods of whales escorting you through the wilds of America’s 49th state, Alaska, is one of the world’s most serene and otherworldly cruising grounds.

Why charter a yacht in Alaska?

Alaska offers breathtaking scenery, spectacular wild animals , and unmatched wilderness – making it an increasingly sought-after destination with travelers seeking an alternative vacation experience. Cruising Alaska’s coastline is to escape the crowds and enjoy nature in all its undiluted beauty. 

Admire and explore some of Earth’s most stunning natural landscapes, dramatic scenery consisting of majestic glaciers, incredible beaches, soaring mountains, and striking fjords. What makes this land even more remarkable is its wilderness: aboard your private crewed yacht, you will enjoy a tranquil experience far from the madding crowds. Additionally, you can reach places that otherwise would be almost impossible to visit. 

Alaska’s wild animals will leave you speechless: See whales breaching the icy waters, brown bears in their natural habitat, and spectacular bald eagles soaring overhead. Prince William Sound is a must-visit, boasting over 100 glaciers, islands, fjords, and more than 120 different species of animals.

Alaska is also one of the best spots for seeing the Northern Lights, especially if you follow the Alaskan coastline to the extreme north. It is considered the best destination to watch this dazzling show light up the night sky.

The remote regions of Alaska are visited by only a small number of people each year, and an Alaska superyacht charter offers the best way to experience the magic of this spectacular destination.

Chartering a yacht in Alaska will give you, your family, or your friends the most unique vacation experience. Discover this otherworldly destination on a crewed yacht charter with Northrop & Johnson. Contact our charter specialists today if you want to explore The Last Frontier and enjoy an unforgettable vacation experience. 

What types of yachts can go to Alaska?

Most yachts that travel to Alaska will be expedition vessels, purposefully built for cruising some of the world’s most remote destinations. However, superyachts and sailing vessels – built to ice-class standards – can also cruise this otherworldly destination. Alaska charter yachts will be purposefully designed for cruising icy waters in style, boasting refined onboard amenities and luxury interiors. Northrop & Johnson boasts the largest fleet of crewed charter yachts to Alaska, offering a luxurious way to experience the magic of this destination. Whether you want to cruise aboard a state-of-the-art expedition vessel, motor yacht, or sailing vessel, our charter specialists will be able to connect you with our ideal boat. Contact our team today; we will be delighted to assist you.

What to do and see on a charter in Alaska?

There is a wonderful selection of things to see and do on a yacht charter in Alaska, most centering around the great outdoors. Here are a few ideas:

Juneau is a coastal city in Alaska’s Inside Passage, which is a popular embarkation spot; however, it’s well worth taking a day to explore this destination either at the start or the end of your Alaska yacht charter holiday. The city is one of a handful in the world that has no direct road access to the world outside, making it truly unique. Highlights include the Juneau-Douglas City Museum and Alaska State Museum, both of which shine a spotlight on the region’s rich culture and heritage, the Last Chance Mining Museum, which explores Juneau’s Gold Rush history, and the Mt Roberts Tramway, which takes passengers 550m (1,800ft) above sea level, providing spectacular views. 

Mendenhall Glacier

Access the Mendenhall Glacier via helicopter and explore its 13-mile-long river of ice. The Mendenhall Glacier is one of many major glaciers that connect to the vast Juneau Ice Field. There are several trails to explore, taking you past cascading waterfalls, salmon streams, and wild animals . The Mendenhall Glacier is also a great destination for enjoying a dog sledding experience.  

Baranof Hot springs 

Located in southern Alaska’s Chatham Strait, you’ll find nine natural hot springs near a cascading waterfall. Set amongst picturesque wild animals , these restorative hot springs sit at the end of a ¼ mile trek. The springs also feature a cold plunge pool to cool down quickly after a long soak. 

Anan Bear and Wildlife Observatory

The Anan Bear and Wildlife Observatory is located in Tongass National Park, which also boasts the largest runs of pink salmon in Southeast Alaska – supporting the park’s high density of black and brown bears. The park includes several viewing platforms, while private guided tours are also available. Anan Bear and Wildlife Observatory offers a rare opportunity to view endemic wild animals in their natural habitat, including bears, bald eagles, and harbor seals. 

Frederick Sound

The striking Frederick Sound is surrounded by towering 9,842ft (3,000m) mountains, with its glacier-fed waters abundant with krill and herring, ensuring superb fishing opportunities. It’s also a great destination for observing humpback whales, who migrate to this area to feed on its nutrient-rich waters. 

Northrop & Johnson can tailor a custom itinerary that includes your desired experiences. Contact our team of charter specialists today.

What wild animals can I expect to see from my Alaska charter boat?

Alaska’s rich wildlife is what makes an Alaska yacht charter so sought-after. Aboard an Alaskan yacht charter, you’ll have the opportunity to see a wide selection of ocean-dwelling marine mammals and land-based critters, including humpback whales, dolphins, seals, sea otters, walrus, bald eagles, falcons, snowy owls, hawks, brown and black bears, polar bears, wolves, moose and bison to name just a few. 

What national parks are the best to visit when chartering in Alaska?

There are several national parks in Alaska, offering superb opportunities for wildlife viewing and outdoor pursuits. Some of the best national parks to explore during a yacht charter in Alaska include: 

The Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve

The Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve cover 3.3 million acres of wilderness, including temperate rainforests, soaring glaciers, wild coastlines, and rugged mountains. The park is located in Alaska’s Inside Passage and is part of a 25 million-acre World Heritage Site. Cruise the coastline of this stunning national park or explore inland protected areas. Glacier Bay offers limitless opportunities for adventure. 

The Denali National Park and Preserve

Covers six million acres of wild land spanning low-elevation taiga forest, high alpine tundra, and snowy mountains, including North America’s tallest peak, the 20,310ft (6,190m) Denali. Unfenced lands enable wild animals to roam free, ensuring superb opportunities for wild animal spotting. Enjoy outdoor pursuits in this pristine part of Alaska, or simply enjoy the park’s peace, tranquillity, and solitude. 

The Kenai Fjords National Park

Located at the edge of the Kenai Peninsula, the Kenai Fjords National Park’s crowning feature is its 40 glaciers that flow from the Harding Icefield. Enjoy guided hiking trails through the park’s icy interior, or hop on a snowmobile for the ultimate adventure. The fjord is also a popular migratory passage with humpback whales who feed on its nutrient-rich waters. 

The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve

This vast national park spans 13.2 million acres, rising from the ocean to 18,008ft (5,488.8m). The landscape here is rugged and beautiful, marked by peak after peak and soaring glaciers. Wrangell Park is volcanic in origin; however, only Mount Wragness remains active, and steam vents can be seen near its summit. Historic mining sites pepper the park, providing a snapshot of the region’s history, while the park’s landscape offers a wealth of activities; hike, ski, or kayak, adventure is limited only by your imagination. 

Katmai National Park and Preserve

The Katmai National Park and Preserve in the southwest of Alaska was established in 1918 and is an important habitat for salmon and thousands of brown bears. Indeed, the park is North America’s largest protected population of brown bears. The vast wilderness is rich in environmental influences, offering diverse natural flora and fauna to explore. The region has been inhabited for over 9,000 years and, as such, boasts a history that is uniquely intertwined with the landscape. 

Lake Clark National Park and Preserve

Shimmering turquoise lakes, steaming volcanoes, and craggy mountains personify Lake Clark National Park and Reserve. Not only does the park protect local wild animals , but it also preserves the ancestral homeland of the Dena’ina people. Crescent Lake, deep in the park’s wilderness, is considered one of the park’s most scenic locations and offers a wealth of experiences, including fishing, hiking, wild animal spotting, and kayaking. 

What is the best time to cruise Alaska?

The seasons of Alaska each present unique experiences. From early June to the end of August, the Alaskan summer season inspires wonder and hope, with a lush green landscape and royal blue skies set against snow-peaked mountains. Wildlife awakens from the winter, and it’s a great time to explore the outdoors. The shoulder season – May and September – is also a fantastic time to visit. Winter in Alaska is the best time to view the Northern Lights and enjoy winter sports. Charterers will often select the month they wish to visit depending on the wild animals they hope to see and the activities they want to enjoy. If you want to charter a yacht in Alaska, contact Northrop & Johnson. 

What do I need to know about the Alaskan weather?

  • Average summer temperatures: 45F (7C) to 75F (24C)
  • Average winter temperatures: -10F (-23C) to 20F (-7C)  

Alaska experiences various weather conditions due to its vast size and diverse geography. Expect milder temperatures in coastal areas compared to inland regions. Alaska is known for its extremely cold winters, with temperatures often dropping below freezing and some regions experiencing lows of up to- 50F/-45C. On the other hand, summers can be mild, with parts of Alaska in the north experiencing the ‘midnight sun’  – several weeks when the sun never sets. Summer temperatures in Alaska have been known to rise to about 90F (34C). The Chinook Winds in the southeastern region can also bring rapid temperature fluctuations.

What airports are best for starting my Alaskan cruise?

Several airports in Alaska can accommodate international flights, private jets, and seaplanes. These include: 

  • Juneau International Airport (JNU)
  • Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC)
  • Ketchikan International Airport (KTN)
  • Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport (SIT)
  • Seward Airport (SWD)
  • Homer Airport (HOM)
  • Petersburg James A. Johnson Airport (PSG)

How much is an Alaska yacht charter?

The cost of an Alaska yacht charter will depend on multiple factors, including the size of the vessel, its onboard amenities, the number of guests, time of year, cruising itinerary, desired experiences, and length of stay. Expect to pay a minimum of US$50,000 per week for a yacht charter in Alaska. Northrop & Johnson has a fantastic selection of private crewed boats for charter in Alaska. Contact our team for more information and help planning your luxury superyacht getaway.

What is the currency in Alaska? 

U.S. dollars are the currency of Alaska. 

What is the official language of Alaska? 

Alaska has several official languages. In addition to English – which was designated the official state language in 1998 – the U.S. state is also home to at least 20 official native languages. These include Eskimo Aleut, Haida, Tsimshian, and Athabaskan. 

What are the visa requirements to enter Alaska? 

The visa requirements to enter Alaska are identical to any other U.S. state. All non-U.S. and non-Canadian citizens must have a valid passport and apply for an ESTA, which can be obtained via an online application. When you book an Alaskan yacht charter with Northrop & Johnson, your charter expert will advise you on all the required visa requirements.

What is the internet connection like in Alaska? 

Compared to other parts of the U.S., Alaska’s internet connectivity can be poor. Many of Northrop & Johnson’s luxury yachts for charter in Alaska boast sophisticated maritime internet services, enabling you to stay connected as you explore the most remote frontier.

What Our Visitors Have Said

What an amazing experience we had aboard the Sea Mist. It was truly a once in a lifetime trip! From the moment we stepped on board Jeff and Kate were warm and inviting hosts. The boat is clean and spacious while offering great spaces to get comfortable while aboard. We anchored in a cove where we saw tons of wildlife including a brown bear which was amazing. The food was outstanding and we regret not staying longer. This is a TRUE Alaska experience and we will be back to do it again.

THANK YOU!!!

Once in a lifetime and a one of a kind experience! Everything was absolutely incredible.

Words can’t describe and pictures hardly do justice. Everything was perfect from the moment we were met at the dock. Chef Suzette wowed us at every meal with her fresh culinary creations. Dining while watching glaciers calving and waterfowl dancing in the waterfalls were breathtaking. Captain Jeff is a fabulous host. Very in tune with his guests and what will provide their best Alaskan adventure. Whether you are looking to unwind and reflect on the wonder that is Alaska or seeking a more active itinerary, Captain Jeff and Alaskan Luxury Cruises delivers!

By far, this has been one of my favorite vacations. When planning our trip, I had no idea of the level of exceptional customer service we were going to receive. Captain Jeff, Kate and Chef Zach went OVER AND ABOVE WHAT WE EXPECTED. They did a wonderful job of making us feel at home. Five stars isn’t enough to give the crew of The Sea Mist.

The Sea Mist brings a new level of luxury to vacation. This trip is not your average trip, this experience will fill a spot in your soul that will linger with you for the rest of your days. That is rare to find in any vacation and rare to find in life.

Jen, Ogden, Utah

From the moment we stepped foot on the boat on a gloriously sunny day in Whittier until we stepped off a few days later, we were treated to amazing views, food, and activities. Captain Jeff has been on Prince William Sound for many years and put together an excellent itinerary for the interests of our groups, from hiking to kayaking to glacier viewing, everything was perfect for us

The beauty of the Sea Mist perfectly complemented the beauty surrounding us. She’s a beautiful custom yacht full of wide open spaces that are unexpected for a boat. Every detail is immaculate. There wasn’t enough time to truly enjoy all the comfortable seating areas around the boat. While the Sea Mist could likely comfortably carry 20+ people, the small, private group made us feel like royalty. In addition, the smoothness of the ride aboard the Sea Mist is unparalleled. We never felt like we were out on the water. This would be the perfect trip for anyone who otherwise struggles with seasickness.

I cannot rave enough about Alaskan Luxury Cruises. For this being my first time visiting Alaska, the experience was more amazing than I imagined. The whole crew on the Sea Mist were so hospitable and warm and welcoming. Kate did a fantastic job of making sure we were taken care of. And chef Dave made every meal with so much thought. I highly recommend booking the Sea Mist for a luxury Alaskan adventure.

Rent a yacht in Alaska to explore the wildlife and natural wonders. Private yacht cruises in Alaska offer a completely different type of experience compared to other destinations, but it is nothing less than awe-inspiring – there’s a reason why so many people put Alaska on their bucket lists!

Explore the Inside Passage on a Private Alaska Yacht Charter

The scenery in Alaska is unmatched. On Alaska yacht charters you can see ice-capped mountains surrounded by lush forests with rushing waterfalls cascading into the deep blue ocean waters. You can kayak to a clear mountain lake that is fed by a melting glacier.

Alaska’s best attraction is most definitely a natural one: the outdoors. You will see majestic creatures like black bears, grizzly bears, deer, and bald eagles. As your private boat glides through the water, keep your eyes peeled for signs of aquatic wildlife. You will be able to see a variety of whales, such as humpback whales and orcas. More commonly, while you’re aboard one of our luxury Alaska yacht charters, you might spot porpoises, harbor seals, sea lions, or sea otters.

Alaska is the Perfect Summer Yacht Charter Destination

Alaska holds major appeal for those looking to reserve a tour on a private boat rental, but its greatest shortcoming is its extreme weather, making charter season only a few months long – from mid-May through mid-September.

Summer temperatures are pleasant with highs generally between 55-78° Fahrenheit. Nights are comfortably cool as the temperatures drop to the 50s, meaning you can spend your evenings outdoors or on the deck of the yacht, but you will need a jacket.

Alaska Crewed Motor Yacht Charters

The best way to see Alaska is by chartering your own private motor yacht. A private boat cruise is the ultimate way to explore the Alaskan scenery, from breath-taking glaciers to abundant wildlife and marine life.

If you wish to avoid crowds and spend a fun time full of adventures, let our charter brokers prepare a customize yachting package for you and your family.

Most of the available crewed motor yachts in Alaska are available out of Juneau and Sitka. Be prepared to experience an adventure of a lifetime!

Top Alaska Boat Charter Destinations

A boat and a glacier in Alaska

The Inside Passage runs from Juneau and Glacier Bay in the north to Ketchikan in the south and puts on a dazzling display of ice.

The coastal mountain ranges and islands of the Inside Passage offer opportunities for fishing, kayaking, wildlife viewing, and hiking.

Tracy Arm Fjord About 70 miles south of Juneau, you’ll find Tracy Arm Fjord, a narrow, inlet with towering, craggy walls. The fjord is fascinating all by itself, with waterfalls and national protected forests along the way. If you’re lucky, you might see a black or brown bear, harbor seals, or wolves in the adjacent Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness.

But the real reason to visit is the fjord’s glaciers. Tracy Arm is home to some of Alaska’s most photogenic glaciers, including Sawyer Glacier. Sawyer is an active tidewater glacier – which means large chunks “calve” off. And when you see it up close, you’ll have the chance to witness one of these massive bergs breaking off and crashing to the sea below, as it’s known to calf regularly.

Glacier National Park If you’re in search of glaciers, you’ll find plenty in Glacier Bay National Park. Located north of Juneau, this UNESCO World Heritage Site offers many spectacular sights to see, including 7 active tidewater glaciers.

Glacier Bay is home to some of Alaska’s largest active glaciers. Grand Pacific Glacier – for instance – sits at the back coast of the bay. It measures two miles wide, with ice walls towering 15 stories. Grand Pacific’s neighbor, Margerie Glacier, though, is the star of the show.

Margerie Glacier is majestic, so no wonder it is a must-see sight for many charter boats. With an ice face measuring 25 stories tall, watching the glacier drop ice into the bay will take your breath away. Beyond the glaciers, the National Park is also an incredible spot for whale-watching, kayaking, and other water sports.

Juneau Juneau is Alaska’s state capital and one of the most beautiful cities in the state. The city can only be reached by airplane or boat, there is no road access. Juneau is the perfect base for starting your Alaska yacht charter.

You can’t visit Juneau without a trip to Mendenhall Glacier. Located just 10 miles from downtown Juneau, the glacier is part of the Juneau Icefield, a photographic panorama of steel blue ice that’s been here since the last Ice Age. More on Juneau .

Sitka Sitka is located on the outer coast of Alaska’s Inside Passage and lies at the heart of the Tongass National Forest, the largest temperate rain forest in the world.   More on Sitka

Ketchikan Ketchikan, a lively fishing and logging community, is located in the southernmost city on the Inside Passage. Also called the “Salmon Capital of the World”, Ketchikan is known for fishing, beautiful scenery, and rich Native culture. More on Ketchikan

Hubbard Glacier Hubbard Glacier – north of Glacier Bay – is North America’s largest tidewater glacier. This is a massive giant you have to see to believe. Measuring 6+ miles wide, the glacier is continuing to grow, or “surge,” and Hubbard towers 40 stories tall.

Hubbard is also one of the most beautiful glaciers in Alaska, with jade blue and frozen sapphire hues. Not only does it wow with its vastness – it’s also a treasure to see up close. The Disenchantment Bay and journey into the fjord put on a show of wildlife. The fjord is home to seal and whale populations, and the region is well-known for its fishing.

Private yachts offer flexible itineraries, based on guests’ preferences. Here are samples of two popular charter routes:

  • Juneau to Juneau itinerary
  • Juneau to Sitka itinerary

The Alaska Bucket List

Whale watching in Alaska

You can find eight species of whales in the Alaskan waters. Some of the species live in the waters year-round, and some migrate to Alaska in the summer. The most common whales that you will see in Alaska are the Orca and humpback whales . More on whale watching in Alaska .

Seeing a Glacier Up Close and Personal

Most of the time yacht rental vacations include warm tropical waters, but this time around you’re in for something completely different. Nothing is more magical than cruising past towering glaciers while icebergs float on the water and chunks of frozen water crash into the sea below.

Inside Passage glacier, a yacht charter will bring you past walls of ice, stunning waterfalls, and wildlife sunning on floating chunks of ice as they take a break from splashing around. Bottom line, if you fancy yourself an explorer, chartering a yacht in Alaska will let you live your dreams.

Seeing Amazing Wildlife

Cruise through ancient forests and see wildlife in its natural habitat. Look for majestic creatures like black bears, grizzly bears, deer, and bald eagles on land. As your private yacht glides through the water, keep your binoculars ready in anticipation of spotting giant brown bears. Or, you may spy a black bear picking berries from a bush or a gracious moose ambling to the water for a drink.
