Why We Are Different from Other Alaska Inside Passage Cruises

 It is our experience that there are few small cruisers like ours (80 feet) available in Alaska’s Inside Passage which can take small groups of 8 to 12 guests. We specialize in giving you an authentic and “up close and personal” more intimate visit with the glaciers, wildlife, and more which is something you won’t find on a larger cruise ships.


Our team at Alaska Boat Cruises (an operation of Parker Guide Services), has led excursions throughout the Inside Passage of Alaska since 1990, and has the knowledge, experience, and accommodations to provide you with the finest in service and quality trips. We are committed to offering you the finest in travel and adventure opportunities, with luxurious, spacious accommodations and very personalized service aboard the M/V Alaskan Harvest. We have worked hard for many years to provide our guest with a rewarding and fulfilling, fully catered experience that gives insight to Alaska’s many natural treasures as well as entertaining you, no matter what part of the world you are from or how many times you have been to Alaska. We are confident that an adventure with us will provide you with fond memories to last a lifetime.


Customized Inside Passage Cruises

We give you a very personalized and customized experience with a high degree of flexibility to ensure you get exactly the style of cruise adventure you desire. Trip dates, arrivals and departures, are about the only portions of your trip that are fixed. We enjoy letting our guest interests steer each specific trip. While cruising, we will always tend to stop and watch sea life we encounter, i.e. whales, sea lions, etc. We like to keep approximately half our trip time cruising and the other engaging in activities of our guests’ choice. We aim to fulfill the needs and desires of each guest on these excursions.


Exclusive Alaska Inside Passage cruise tours are available for your specific group or you can share your cruise experience with others and bond with fellow travelers in new found acquaintances.
