The American owned, U.S. flagged small-ship adventure company, UnCruise Adventures has confirmed that its 2020 Alaska sailings will commence August 1st.

 “As one of the first companies to restart service, this is a pivotal moment for the travel industry and Alaska,” states UnCruise Adventures Owner and CEO Dan Blanchard. “These initial departures represent a re-framing of what adventure travelers are increasingly looking for, small groups, inclusion, and human connection.”

Consider an Alaska UnCruise Adventure in August.

 The initial Alaska sailing will take guests round trip from Juneau to Juneau on its 7-night Glacier Bay National Park Adventure with an enhanced wilderness itinerary. Two days in Glacier Bay make this one of the company's most popular adventures and, free from a large-ship presence all season, offers a rare moment of Southeast Alaska solitude not experienced in decades. Eager guests can experience active adventures daily with remote wilderness hikes, shoreline kayaks, and their choice of nature-based activities.
Observe turtles and other friendly sea creatures.

UnCruise Adventures has taken strong measures to implement health safety standards with a Coronavirus protocol plan recently released on their website.There is a new normal in travel and the restart of summer sailings represent a dedication to supporting local partnerships such as UnCruise Adventures long-standing work with Alaska state officials.

Get up close and personal with the amazing landscape.
  “How we structure our recovery efforts with new health safety standards, establish partnerships and operate with a small footprint will continue to define our industry and the pristine environments we visit for decades to come,” says Blanchard about his commitment to the industry. “The market is showing a growing interest in off-the-beaten-path destinations and that is what we do best. We've been social distancing since 1996.”
