About UnCruise Adventures

Finding Our Un-ness

It took grit, hard work, and a bit of luck, but the stars aligned when UnCruise Adventures came to be. Connection and innovation have been at the heart ever since. Adventures are driven by fearless teams and a commitment of leaving the beaten path and really exploring—experiencing—what the world has to offer. UnCruise Adventures operates from its offices at historic Fishermen's Terminal in Seattle, Washington and in Juneau, Alaska.

Our mission: To provide our guests an enriching adventure travel experience and inspire an appreciation of local cultures and the natural world.

We understand that ecosystems are fragile, yet important, environments. And we know first-hand the impact our adventures have on sustaining local communities. One of the key components of our company’s mission statement is to actively promote environmental protection through education, actions, and initiatives that promote responsible travel.

In 1996, American Safari Cruises pioneered yacht cruising in Alaska and over time, added new destinations, adventures, vessels, and ultimately, changed our name to UnCruise Adventures. We can’t wait to share this unbelievable world with you.
