Wilderness Explorer

Daring and ambitious, and a wee bit salty. The Wilderness Explorer was destined for Alaska’s deep waters from the first moment she slid into the drink. A strong “sea boat” with feet, she is not bashful or apologetic in her unflinching drive to seek out secret niches. Embracing change, the crew is known to try the untried, whether it’s gaining access to an unexplored trail or a new recipe with locally foraged ingredients. Bold with a capital Brrr, she is also our only ship to have over-wintered in Southeast Alaska, for not one, but two wicked cold seasons. Get to know her, and she’ll warm your heart.
