SAIL ALASKA'S WILD COAST - Through the Kodiak Archipelago

Stretching across 900 miles of wild Alaskan coastline, emerald green Kodiak is the second largest island in the U.S. and is surrounded by a vast archipelago. Our sail will cover a complex circuit of narrow fjords, islands and sea stack bays, rocky headlands and hidden alcoves of the rugged Alaska Peninsula.
One of the most spectacular and ecologically diverse areas in Alaska.
Not a route taken by big tour groups, our remote, hand-charted course traverses Kodiak, Afognak and Shuyak islands as well as the 4.7 million acre Katmai National Park. Following the Katmai coastline, one of the most spectacular and ecologically diverse areas in Alaska, expect to run through rolls of film. This is home to the largest brown bear concentration in the world and its waters support among the richest marine life in the Pacific.

We'll have the rare opportunity to observe wildlife in their natural habitat. We'll ply the waters accompanied by humpbacks, orcas, dall porpoises and seals. Fantastic bird life is also plentiful. The Kirsten Anne's nimble handling and the skipper's keen knowledge will allow us to respond to unanticipated delights, so the trip's route is a sample. This is your chance to experience spectacular wilderness in a way that few ever have.
