The award-winning travel company Adventure Life is proud to offer more than 50 small ship cruises and Alaska adventures for the 2013 travel season, including itineraries aboard several luxury expedition cruise ships and yachts. Not only do the travel specialists at Adventure Life understand the ins and outs of cruising this untamed wilderness and ecological hot spot, but they also know the best time to visit Alaska.

"Our cruises include visits to the Prince William Sound, Glacier Bay, Point Adolphus, and Denali Park," said Adventure Life General Manager Jonathan Brunger. "Guests enjoy river rafting, horseback riding, whale watching and hiking in the shadow of Mount McKinley."
Adventure Life's small ship cruises for 2013 include excursions with the following vessels, among others:
- Wilderness Explorer -The newly renovated 76-guest Wilderness Explorer offers a main lounge that evokes the feel of a National Park Lodge or neighborhood pub. Kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, inflatable skiffs, a hydrophone for listening below-surface, and a bow-mounted underwater camera separates this ship from most.
- Alaskan Dream - At 104 feet in length, the Alaskan Dream is an innovative, streamlined catamaran. It is designed specifically for navigating narrow channels and passages, while at the same time providing the comforts you would expect aboard a much larger ship.
- Safari Quest - The Safari Quest provides guests with an intimate experience, while the comfortable staterooms and public spaces offer ample room to get away from it all. Guests use the salon to recap the day's activities, and the yacht's bar is always stocked with complimentary microbrews, fine wines, and premium liquors.
"These Alaska adventures involve more than just sightseeing on a cruise ship," said Brunger. "Daily zodiac and kayak tours explore glaciers, icebergs, fjords and rivers, and guests will get up-close-and-personal with bears, moose, otters, bald eagles, humpback whales, orcas and porpoises."
