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.

Designated an operator of “Best of the World” trips by National Geographic Traveler, Maple Leaf Adventures has provided conservation-focused, boutique expedition cruises since 1986. With a reputation as one of the west coast’s top sustainable tour operators, its multi-day excursions give guests one-of-a-kind experiences in some of the most beautiful and rare places in the world, often in areas that were once under threat of destruction or in dire need of protection. Maple Leaf was awarded the Parks Canada Sustainable Tourism Award for promoting the appreciation and protection of Canada’s natural, cultural and aesthetic heritage. As a long-time practitioner of ecotourism, Maple Leaf Adventures pioneered small-boat travel in Alaska, BC’s Great Bear Rainforest and northwestern Vancouver Island, and allocates significant resources to support and build the industry. Maple Leaf’s leaders are fuelled by their education in environmental studies and social responsibility. Their vision is to help create a made-on-the-coast, high-quality nature-based tourism industry, that has a symbiotic relationship with coastal ecosystems and cultures and that integrates with both indigenous and western cultures along the coast.
Ursa Major Charters specializes in customized 8-day adventure trips for 4-6 guests in southeast Alaska. Our Alaska trips are multi-activity trips aboard the beautiful motor yacht Ursa Major, and include sea kayaking, hiking, and wildlife viewing. We feel Alaska is not a shopping destination, but a chance to experience nature untrammeled by people. We cater specifically to guests who wish to experience Alaska in both adventure and comfort. The majority of the excursions during our adventure trips are non-motorized, and focus on no-trace kayaking. Aboard the Ursa Major, we turn off our power-generating systems at night to not only save on fuel, but to ensure our guests will experience Alaska without noise pollution in a tranquil setting. Ursa Major Charters holds one of the few U.S. Forest Service “Special Use Permits” for shore excursions in the Tongass National Forest. This “no-trace principle” permit allows us to hike ashore and explore places few other visitors ever experience first-hand. We offer Alaskan adventure trips, trawler training trips, whale watching trips, and glacier viewing trips all throughout the summer season in southeast Alaska, from May to early September.
