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.

Discovery Voyages is one of Alaska’s oldest and most respected eco-tour operators. Dean Rand, captain and owner of Discovery Voyages, offers week-long natural history, hiking, photography, kayaking, and outdoor education tours in the fjords and wilderness waters of Prince William Sound.
During the past 15 years, Dean and his staff have become increasingly concerned about the melting of glacial ice, the introduction of never-before-seen pathogens in shellfish, and the loss of critical wildlife habitat–all due to global warming. At the same time, they recognize that wilderness cruises, by their very nature, require the consumption of some fossil fuel and the addition of greenhouses gases into the atmosphere.
As a result, Discovery Voyages has looked at its own actions and sought to take responsibility by being as energy efficient as possible. In addition, it has partnered with Native Energy to offset its carbon use and to give passengers the opportunity to contribute to the carbon offset program and promote energy independence and clean emissions.
