AAA Sojourns and InnerSea Discoveries voyages bring small-ship adventure to cruising. The maneuverability of expedition-size ships and yachts gives you unparalleled access to wilderness areas in ways you may not know were possible on a cruise. Explore secluded coves and see eye-to-eye with marine mammals and other wildlife. Onboard naturalists and experts open your eyes to the destinations, animals and sea life that you encounter. In fact, these small-ship cruises are so unlike what you'd expect from a traditional cruise that InnerSea Discoveries has coined the term "Un-Cruise" to describe these unique adventures.
Choose from a variety of itineraries to Alaska and Hawaii. Whether you want to explore Alaska's Eastern Coves, Western Coves, Northern Passages or Glacier Bay, your intimate “un-cruise” is sure to be unforgettable. Alaska's coast is spectacular, characterized by an incredibly complex maze of islands and waterways that many cruise ships are too large to fully explore. But on an InnerSea Discoveries ship, you can follow where your imagination leads. With no more than 88 guests onboard and a 3-to-1 ratio of guests to crew, these small expedition ships navigate deep into the Alaskan wilderness accompanied by experienced expedition leaders who travel with you to share their expert knowledge of each destination.
In Hawaii, experience the islands of Oahu, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and the Big Island from the same "Un-Cruise" perspective. The island chain forms the largest marine sanctuary in the world and is one of the world’s most important habitats for humpback whales. Two-thirds of the North Pacific population migrates to Hawaii each winter for breeding, calving and nursing. Fascinating marine exploration and active adventure will fill your week of discovery in this playground of tropical waters, towering peaks and submerged craters. In one of the richest marine environments in all of North America, balance your days with snorkeling, kayaking, exploring by skiff, stand-up paddle boarding and relaxing on deck or in the lounge.
