The 20 meter steel motor vessel Snow Goose was built in Alaska in 1973 as a private yacht.
She sleeps 12 passengers in six private double bedded cabins sharing three lavatories and two showers. The main deck features a spacious, airy salon, a library of natural history books, the galley and a dining area. Large windows provide great viewing on all sides and easy access to the deck.
The upper bridge deck provides a lovely vantage point for spotting wildlife and comfortable seating for passengers who wish to get involved with the navigation of the ship. Snow Goose will enable you to explore the natural history and Native American heritage of southeast Alaska.
Highlights include watching humpback whales, seeing native totem poles, sighting bears on beaches and traveling up spectacular mountain fjords to find icebergs and glaciers. Most of the voyages will be in the Tongass National Forest — the largest in North America.
Daily shore excursions discover beautiful forest walks, tumbling waterfalls and walks in alpine meadows. With a naturalist on board, you will be able to observe the fascinating wildlife and explore the shoreline for larger mammals.
The itinerary is intentionally flexible to meet individual interests, weather patterns, and of course, to take full advantage of wildlife sightings.
