Cruise Adventures

For Alaska cruise passengers, Alaska Private Touring provides small ship cruises and private charted cruise options for travelers. In addition, we offer unique, custom-designed shore excursions in cruise ports of call as well as land-based itineraries to help you maximize your fun pre and post cruise and extend your on-board cruise experience.

Small Ship Cruises

There is simply no better way to explore Alaska by water than on a small-ship cruise. Our cruising options include scheduled departures out of Sitka, Ketchikan, Petersburg or Juneau in Alaska’s spectacular Inside Passage. Small ship cruises appeal to multiple generations and provide unparalleled opportunity for marinelife and glacier viewing. Each small ship or luxury yacht has its own unique “personality” and feature delicious cuisine, rich amenities, outstanding guest service, and complimentary adventure gear and equipment.

Private Cruise Charters

We offer boat buyouts for private charted cruising on the route of your choice with full crew and amenities included. Our charters cruise vessels typically have a capacity of 4 – 22 persons, but larger cruise vessels are also available for private charters upon request.

Shore Excursions Just for You

Whatever port of call your cruise pulls in at, the Alaska Private Touring team knows how to help you plan a very special private shore excursion maximizing your limited time while docked there. We know all Alaska’s ports of call inside and out including the unique activities available to cruise passengers in Skagway, Sitka, Haines, Juneau and Ketchikan, among others. Our carefully selected local adventure partners will show you the time of your life and have strong reputations for providing quality service. And we are always on the lookout for new, exciting opportunities in our cruise ship ports of call so we can share them with cruise lovers.

Pre or Post Cruise Land-Based Itineraries

Before your cruise begins or after it ends, a private, land-based travel experience in Alaska allows you to experience even more of Alaska’s many natural treasures, outdoor adventures, and unique cultural traditions. We can plan tailor-made land-based itineraries for you which span from one day to two weeks. If you just need a private transfer directly from the ship or to the airport, we can also assist.
