Small Ships. Big Adventures.

With Uncruise Adventures

UnCruise defines adventure. The splash of a whale tail, sparkling bioluminescence, calving glaciers, howler monkeys, and the scent of plumeria in the valley. Explore playgrounds that offer the richest, wildest connections by hike, paddle, skiff, and with locals. Places so tucked away that UnCruise’s cozy boats fit in just right. Throughout your cruise, you’ll receive welcoming, friendly, personalized service – and a host of benefits you won’t find on most other ships. 

On a journey this intimate, you can’t help but feel connected – to the earth, to yourself, and to friends new and old.

Here’s Why Travelers Choose to UnCruise:

Flexibility to do as much or as little as you like; small group travel puts you in on the action. And, within itinerary routes, your captain and crew are ready to turn, pause, and seize opportunity, lingering for whale sprays, bow riding dolphins or fascinating wildlife.

Expedition vessels are well-appointed and very comfortable.

Every fare includes: excursions, all from-the-vessel activities and equipment; hand-crafted cuisine, a wide array of beverage options (including alcohol), transfers, and baggage handling.

Exciting adventures destinations include: Alaska, Columbia & Snake Rivers, Central America, Galápagos, Hawaiian Islands, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Northwest.
