Wildlife and Waterfalls Cruise

Menu ≡

Truly unique Alaskan adventure!

Set out on a private cruise of Kachemak Bay with your friends and family aboard the Wilderness Explorer or the Alaska Endeavor!  Our luxury vessels are gyro stabilized with Seakeeper 6 systems that nearly eliminate the roll that causes motion sickness.  Stablized boats have virtually no lateral roll and make them perfect platforms for the avid wildlife photographers or guests that struggles with motion sickness.  Sit back and relax while becoming fully immersed in the scenery and biodiversity of the Alaska coastline. Our professional crew is knowledgeable in the wildlife and history that surrounds this area. Want to see an amazing waterfall?  We’ll cruise to the head of Tutka Bay and pull up to a 100’ waterfall that begins high in the snowcapped mountains of the Kenai Range.  Keep a close eye out for whales breaching and spouting.  The last few years have seen an increase in Humpback, Orca, and Minke whale sightings in and around Kachemak Bay.  This area is rich with fuzzy Sea Otters deep diving for mussels and Tanner crabs, and many times you’ll see a baby otter soaking up the sun and sleeping comfortably on the belly of its mother.  How about Puffins?  Yep…. we got ‘em.  Our area of Alaska is home to one of the largest varieties of sea birds in the world.  After a morning of cruising and wildlife viewing, we’ll head into Seldovia Harbor where you’ll have a chance to walk around this quaint Alaska village while the crew is setting up for your meal.  Take this 45 minute opportunity to check out several shops and stores along main street or peruse the boat harbor and chat with the locals.  Now, jump back on board and we’ll head for one of our favorite scenic coves where you’ll have an opportunity to relax, glass for wildlife, take photos and eat!  You’ll start off with a crisp vegetable tray and jumbo shrimp appetizer, followed by your choice of grilled New York Steak or Marinated Chicken.  Also on the menu, parmesan crusted asparagus, cheese covered broccoli, and Alaska red skinned potatoes baked to perfection.  As a bonus, a heaping plate of steamed Alaska Crab and melted butter will be center-table!  Top it all off with caramel drizzled cheesecake or warm pie with vanilla ice cream.  Relax on the deck with a cup of coffee, tea, or your favorite beverage and take in the view while the crew cleans up before our cruise back to Homer. Our full day wildlife cruise with gourmet meal is offered daily on a private charter basis and is ideal for families and friends alike that want to relax and take in all of the beauty that coastal Alaska has to offer while enjoying a meal fit for a king!
