95' Caledonia charter Yacht Departs Seattle for Alaska May 19

Share Article

The private luxury charter yacht Caledonia departs Seattle for SE Alaska to spend the summer plying the waters of Frederick Sound, Stephens Passage, and Chatham Strait, the narrow passage of the eastern North Pacific through the northern Alexander Archipelago. Featured sights include natural hot springs, humpback and killer whales, eagles, grizzly bears eating sea grasses along the shoreline, and fishing for the king of all salmon, the king salmon.

Captain Bob of the motor yacht Caledonia has been plying the waters of Southeast Alaska for the past decade and knows how to get guests up close and personal with the whales, fishing spots, hidden coves, and natural hot springs. When the luxury yacht cuts off its engines to listen to the whales sounding, breathing, and blowing the whales actually swim around and even under the hull.

Unlike huge cruise ships, the 95 foot custom yacht can go in shallower waters and maneuver in smaller channels. For fishing enthusiasts, the Caledonia offers a separate 28 foot fishing boat with its own captain. This unique combination provides the ideal blend for a once in a lifetime vacation experience with great Alaska fishing and tours.

Alaska is one of the Earth's most protected and cherished habitats for some of the planet's most endangered species. Previous guests have seen humpback and killer whales, American bald eagles, brown/black bears, sea lions, and porpoises.

Highlights of the vacation include watching green-blue icebergs calving, waterfalls, kayaking, gourmet food and wine. The Caledonia offers charters in Southeast Alaska from June 1st to August 31st.

Alaskanwcharters.com has several charters still available for the 2008 season including the repositioning charter from Seattle to Sitka, Alaska via the inside passage.

Popular attractions in the Alaskan waterways include watching the whales in Frederick Sound and the calving of ice in Tracy Arm to create new ice-bergs. With global warming, these sights and sounds could soon be a gone in Alaska as well as other places in the world
