Allen Marine Tours

The best way to experience Southeast Alaska’s majestic scenery, amazing wildlife, Native history, and frontier lifestyle is on the water. Almost every feature of this vast coastal wilderness is shaped by water and ice. And almost every community – of both animals and man – is nourished by the bounty of the sea. In this paradise of countless islands, the surest formula for having the adventure of a lifetime is to just add water! Allen Marine Tours is a family-owned company based in Sitka that has been conducting day-cruises for Alaska’s visitors since 1970. Three generations of the Allen family are active in the company. With a fleet of over 25 vessels – and operations based in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka – we are the largest and most experienced day-cruise company in Alaska.

All of the vessels we operate were built by us in our Sitka shipyard. Catamarans dominate our fleet. The superior speed, maneuverability and stability of their twin-hull design is perfect for Alaskan waters. Our many years of sightseeing experience are evident in each vessel we design and build. Our highest priorities are safety, comfort, panoramic viewing, and exceeding your expectations.

Custom Alaska Cruises

Join us aboard our custom 70 foot expedition cruise vessel or our 100 ft private yacht, each vessel with four private guest suites, ensuite bathrooms for each stateroom, first class chef and full staff to meet all your needs. Experience Alaska in luxury. Kayaking, whale watching, glacier viewing, fishing, and many more enticing expeditions.

The Sikumi was custom built expressly for service in Alaska by one of the Northwest’s most renowned ship builders, and while finished for luxury, it was built tough. From the panoramic views at the galley table to the fully covered upper viewing deck, nothing was spared in creating a comfortable environment for our guests.

Motor yacht (M/Y) Golden Eagle, was added to our fleet in 2017. Built by Broward in the United States, the Golden Eagle was designed with luxury and sophistication in mind. With a spacious main salon and dining area there is no doubt our guests will find comfort while cruising through deep fjords and secluded coves. There are multiple covered outdoor seating areas to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and wildlife in Southeast Alaska.

A typical cruise will only have 8 adults onboard, and possibly some young sailors (we do offer adult only cruises as well). If you would like to bring up to 12 guests, you can charter the entire boat for the week. The highest crew to guest ratio, (5 crew to 8 guests) we are able to offer first class service, while truly experiencing Alaska. Our Alaska based captain will show you the real wilderness of Alaska.
Our Custom Alaska Cruises not only feature spectacular wildlife and scenery viewing, but we may be best known for our cuisine. Our on board 5 star professional chef will prepare one culinary delight after another for you, showcasing Alaska Seafood, catering to any special food needs, diets or allergies.
