The Alaskan Panhandle is an isolated part of the state, making it an excellent private getaway—and an even more private way to see it is via a private yacht charter. During the summer months, temperatures are milder than the frigid winter months, which makes it an optimal time to visit. It is best visited onboard a private yacht, in order to visit areas not easily accessible by the larger mega cruise ships. WiFi is very limited when sailing throughout the remote parts of Alaska, so this will give you a chance to truly disconnect from the world and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

Animal lovers will be in paradise with the chance to see Alaska’s wild animals, including mammals and birds ranging freely in the open. Encounter some of the most treasured Alaskan animals, such as bears hunting for salmon, sea lions swimming about in open waters, or magnificent bald eagles gliding high in the sky. Perhaps one of the most sought-after animals to see in Alaska though, is the humpback whale. If you’re lucky enough to see them during a bubble-net feeding, it will be an amazing opportunity to see this age-old dance done harmoniously by a group of humpback whales, showcasing how they feed in their natural habitat. Take the time to soak in this glorious, memorable event.
