Alaska Unleashed is simply stated an extreme multi-sport adventures. More detailed, it is an 8-day/7-night Southeast Alaska Un-Cruise Experience – journey cruising from Juneau to Ketckikan, or the reverse, Ketchikan to Juneau. InnerSea Discoveries dedicates the Wilderness Adventurer to experience active exploration in Alaska’s serene reaches—hike trails into wildlife-rich forests and kayak dramatic fjords, with only 36 like-minded adventurers aboard.
The itinerary provides researching some of Alaska’s most scenic and untouched places, Glaciers, whales, and wildlife with daily activities such as kayaking, hiking, paddle boarding and snorkeling. All excursions are led by Captain and expedition team guide. Special guest speakers, wildlife viewing opportunities, weather, and tides make each week different from the one before. Areas explored include Misty Fjords National Monument, Revillagigedo Island, Behm Canal, Thomas Bay, Baird Glacier, Frederick Sound, Stephen’s Passage, Windham Bay, Fords Terror Wilderness and Tracy Arm.
“Although every un-cruise adventure includes outdoor activities, we’ve heeded the call to cater to guests looking for high-adventure, multi-sport activities on a daily basis,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “This is for the person who enjoys challenging themselves outside and feels happy coming home tired and maybe a bit dirty.”
The line recommends that guests choosing this departure regularly engage in physical activity equal to a 25 mile bike ride or 5 mile run/hike. When get tired, guests can enjoy in wide range amenities on board. Three accessible decks are fully equipped for comfort and action: yoga classes, hot tub, fitness equipment and a large resource and DVD library. Especially for the Unleashed adventures, a professional masseuse offers each guest a complimentary massage during the week to ease sore muscles and promote relaxation. An underwater camera mounted on the ship’s bow streams video from the underwater world to flatscreen televisions in all guest rooms and the lounge. Healthy and hearty meals feature fresh ingredients including locally caught Alaskan seafood. A 2-1 guest to crew ratio for these three departures ensures attentive service and extra guide staff.
