“Alaska small boat cruises” and “Small Alaska Cruise Ship” are terms that the “mid-size” cruise ships have adopted to describe their Alaska Inside Passage cruises and cruise boats carrying 40-80 passengers. But, there is a real difference between the Alaska cruise experience and “up close wildlife viewing” that these boats offer compared to the relaxed cruising atmosphere and intimate wildlife encounters we have onboard the Discovery. In most of the places that we visit even 20 people seems like a crowd for an Alaska cruise and it is a well known fact that your chances of seeing wildlife are better in smaller groups. The glow of filtered light on mahogany paneling sets the mood to one of relaxation. Picture windows offer panoramic views from every room. Discovery has 4 spacious common areas (Main Salon, separate Dining Salon, Forward Lounge and Fantail). There is plenty of room to gather as a group but you can always find a quiet space to read or catch up on your journal. Staterooms The yacht has 6 nicely appointed guest cabins with comfortable beds, opening portholes, vanity/sink and space to store your belongings. Two heads and showers are shared (a third head is located on the upper deck) and a furnace heating system keeps the boat nice and warm. Guest cabins are separate from crew quarters and battery power is used at night so all is quiet. On Deck Discovery’s open bow is a popular place to sit and an ideal stage for wildlife viewing. Wide, covered side decks allow uninterrupted access all around the boat and the Fantail (like a sun room, aft) provides additional space and undercover seating.  The Toys Discovery carries two Boston Whalers (skiffs), four stable kayaks, crab pots, shrimp pots and salt water fishing gear, for the best fishing in AK. The boat is outfitted with TV, Stereo, Satellite Radio and has a large library of books from the latest novel to informational books on Classic Yachts, Cruising in Alaska, Canada, the San Juan Islands and any wildlife in between. We have it all if you are looking for a intimate and small cruise ship to go from Alaska to Washington and Canada! Come see the difference! We look forward to welcoming you!
