Beautiful, serene, wild and stunning were just a few of the words I overheard from fellow travelers on my recent trip to Alaska. I consider myself very lucky, I’ve been to there numerous times through the years but I’ve never had a trip quite like this one. I was onboard the 120ft yacht Safari Quest with Un-Cruise.

Due to it’s smaller size it could go places larger cruise ships couldn’t. Plus when wild life was spotted, it could slow down or even stop so kayaks could be deployed to get a closer look.

Here is a collection of photographs from the trip:
