Dear UnCruise Family, Thank you for being with us through so much in the past two years , and adventuring with us for the past twenty five. I know th at t ravel is something that will continue to bring us together. As we begin to see more normalcy in the small ship industry and get back to more of our own travels, it has warmed my heart to welcome each guest I've seen in Juneau and our other destinations. Greeting my fellow adventurers face to face is one of the driving reasons I continue to do what I do. We've experienced numerous changes over the years, with the special challenge of COVID , and we've come out of it for the better. Leading trends in our industry, adding more destinations and itineraries, refurbishing our vessels, and becoming m ore nimble and diversified than ever before. As we progress from 2022 to 2023 we've seen features in local, national and international press and have been recognized as one the best adventure cruise lines. Later this year we p repare to release UnJourney, a new video series that highlights my visions and our journey forward. In addition over the past couple of years, we've r echristened one of our beloved boats with a new name, the Wilderness Legacy, have refurbished three of our vessels this season, and have partnered with new industry names from IRONMAN Juneau to REI CO-O P . We will have more digital tools and conveniences for our guests online . Plus our training and safety protocols are top priority for guests and crew. We have embraced small boat, small group, small footprint leadership since starting in 1996. In 2021 we celebrate d our 25th anniversary bringing us into a new era. I can't help but be excited about the growth and possibilities in a re-imagined world of remote adventure travel and c ontinuing to create adventure. With that, we look forward to more growth in our operations, as we n avigate the new travel landscape and the return of travel. My long term business partner and colleague, Mr. Tim Jacox retired in May 2020 and continues with us on our board of advisors. Tim, like so many, will always be a p a rt of the UnCruise family. Looking forward, we will stay committed to our message, our core values and our company culture that make us who we are. A company that supports our communities, our planet and each other. Our focus on UnTourism and remote adventures leads the way for the next generation of UnCruising. One that creates conscious adventurers. I'm living the dream I envisioned while sailing the world on my sailboat so many years ago, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Over and out for now, UnCruisers. I can't wait to see you onboard.

Captain Dan Blanchard Owner and CEO

“How is it you can board a vessel and feel like your best friends invited you?…You folks gave me a well needed vacation with great adventure and happiness.”

Adventure Our name and our passion. Uncovering playgrounds that offer rich experiences by hike, paddle, and with locals. It’s all included, and there’s something for everyone. Bushwhack in Alaska. Hike like mountain goats along the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Kayak through mist in the Salish Sea. Monkey around in lively, lush Costa Rican jungles. Snorkel among turtles, penguins, and a rainbow of fish in Hawaii, Baja, Belize, the Galápagos, or Panamá. Hard-charging or slow- paced, place your adventure order—it’s time to explore and go wild. Place More than locations. They’re corners and coves to get a little lost in. So small against a big land. So deep in another culture. We really do mean wild, too: a private beach on a deserted island, a thick, old-growth forest where the only trails are from wildlife, a mule ride with local rancheros through a Baja oasis. Places so tucked away our small boats fit in just right. “Ports of call” that are unusual and uncrowded. You hold the ultimate backstage pass. Scenic bays and culturally immersive excursions offer windows into worlds most travelers don’t ever see. These are the special, out-of-the-way places that only a few know about. Connection Meet your people. Small boats acquaint you with like-minded travelers and places that tug at your heartstrings. Bonds are hard to define but easy to spot sharing tears at the end—from co-explorers and crew members to friends for life. Form authentic bonds as a Tlingit tribal member lets you in on the story told on an Alaskan totem, or a Hawaiian elder shares the mana of aloha. Genuine experiences take hold of your senses, asking you to linger and remember people and places long after you’ve said farewell.

Our Commitment Small is big these days, but being small is who we are. In 2021, we celebrated 25 years of discoveries. As a small American business, and the top, award winning small boat cruise line for adventure, we know that flexibility is the ticket to big experiences. That’s why within our routes we’re ready to turn, pause, and seize opportunity. Linger for whale sprays or a lesson in net fishing. Good day for a beach party on a deserted island? Why not! Our commitment to going places and doing things others can’t—and our exceptional crew… and food… and creating a safe environment—sets us apart. Our mission: To provide enriching adventure travel experiences that inspire an appreciation of local cultures and the natural world. We also recognize the importance of being a good citizen—having respect for the environment and one another . At UnCruise Adventures, we don’t just talk the talk. Be good to each other. Get a little better every day. Make different mistakes. Do the right thing. These are the core values that guide us whether we are out in the field or working magic behind the scenes. Access by small boat (86 guests, tops) enables you to wrap yourself in the adventure. With a near obsession about being accommodating, we make it easy to try something new. No hidden costs, either, so you can so you can focus on what’s important. From photos of your trip to excursions, presentations, and yes, food and beverages (alcohol too), it’s all covered in the fare.

“Being on a small ship with great friends (new) and being the ONLY ship or vessel of any kind around us. …Unforgettable.”

— Diane N; Port Angeles, WA (Alaska, 2019)

First in Adventure

Hearty, active adventures are rooted in our core. So is watching for wildlife, time spent with locals, and digging into the culture and history of the places you visit. You might be snorkeling with dozens of sea turtles in the morning and joining a cultural ambassador like Danny Akaka to talk story in the afternoon. The spirit of the islands—in all our destinations—is alive and well. In Baja, the Romero family has been leading mule rides across Bahia Agua Verde for generations. Saddle up, sit tight, and wind your way through desert, beach, and a green oasis. On Molokai, Greg and Anakala Pilipo welcome you to the Halawa Valley where they farm, hunt, and fish. Sidle up to a park ranger in Alaska or visit Panamá’s historic Coiba National Park. These are some of the people and pulse of a place. The spirit of adventure soars. Each night your expedition team lays out the choices for the next day: hiking, beach combing, kayaking, skiffing, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are all possibilities. Place your adventure order. From slow beachcombing to hard-charging hikes, there’s something for everyone. And with small group excursions (usually a dozen or so guests) it’s easy to chat up your guides and pause for pictures and reflection. “ Can’t praise the all inclusive small boat experience with UnCruise Adventures enough - 2 epic outdoor adventures each day with knowledgeable and personable guides buffered by gourmet chef prepared meals and open bar." — Steven L. (Alaska 2022 )

Come Play Hikes

Snapshot: Yay to a day of play.

Ascend a desert ridge in Baja or Galápagos. Tackle a switchback in the Pacific Northwest. Delve into Costa Rican jungle and sniff out a jaguar trail in Belize. Or meet the Alaskan bushwhack: a wild and woolly trek over logs and through brush. From an intertidal shore walk or stroll in town to an hours-long summit, hikes are as hard-charging or as slow- paced as you like. It’s up to you. We have hiking poles so you can head out with confidence. Kayaking & paddle boarding From guided Kayaking 101 to an afternoon open paddle, settle in and explore. While open paddling is offered, most kayak outings are guided. In Alaska, challenge yourself to a yak-n-whack: a kayak and bushwhack all-day land and water excursion and UnCruise original. Paddle boards are also available in most destinations. If the water’s calm, keep your eyes on the horizon and give it a go. S kiff rides Let our drivers shuttle you to shore for another excursion or power up and head around the bend to get a better look at sea otters cracking open a shell, iguanas on the move, or birds soaring above the treetops. Climb in, binoculars ready. The skiff’s the thing for covering serious ground with little effort. Snorkeling & polar plunges Immersive in every way and—like all our excursions—snorkeling ranges from intro lessons along shore to deep water jump and go. Noodles are provided if needed, and wet suits are also available in some destinations. For those seeking an extra thrill, try Alaska’s polar plunge—a leap off the fantail and a fun, frigid experience. Chances are you’ll watch your captain jump in too.

Unparalleled Value From your very first inquiry, expect personalized service and expertise—and a host of benefits that make us unique.

Backstage pass

Seriously—they’re aces. Our guides have vast and deep experience, plus an impressive collection of advanced degrees in curiosity-piquing subjects from whales to fungi to geology. Their enthusiasm is intoxicating. Small group travel—from the boat itself to groups of a dozen or so afield—puts you in on the action (not watching from afar), with AHA ! and “I-can’t-believe-I-just-did- that” moments around every corner.

Expert guides

Home away from home

Boats are comfortable, welcoming, and unique in style and personality. All are adventure-ready for gearing up, kicking back, and mixing and mingling.

Adventure for all

Kayak or paddle board. Snorkel or skiff. Beach stroll, hike, or mountain goat climb. There are plenty of options and equipment for everyone to join in the fun.

Active as you like it

You didn’t know it would be this good. Chefs (including pastry chefs) impress, meal after meal, with locally sourced ingredients and swoon-worthy baked- onboard desserts and breads. Do as much or as little as you like. On top of the daily activities, ease into the day with sunrise stretches on the top deck. There’s exercise equipment at the ready, anytime. Or just watch the landscape go by. An astounding array of beverage options, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic (signature cocktails every night!), mean you’re never far from a toast. And it’s all included. Dietary restrictions? Special occasion? Need a little extra help on a hike? It’s our business to make sure your adventure not only matches your needs and expectations but surpasses them. Just ask and we’ll do our best! What most defines your trip is included in the fare—excursions, adventure equipment, transfers, and baggage handling. Put your wallet away (until it’s time to recognize your topnotch crew). We’re all in the same boat. Crew and guests alike, wide-eyed with wonder and childlike curiosity—and it shows. The excitement. Collective energy. Laughs and camaraderie throughout your adventure.

Fresh, hand-crafted cuisine

Cheers to that!

Your Crew

The best of the best, experts in the industry, and just plain fun. Your onboard team includes the captain, mates, engineers, chefs, expedition guides, and hotel, galley and deck staff. Each team member is hand-picked for their astounding knowledge, experience, customer service, and safety skills—plus their “can do” attitude and genuine spirit. They undergo training in areas such as leadership, CPR, wilderness response, safety, guest services, and “Leave No Trace” practices. They’ve got you covered. But it’s more than that. Crew knows your name, quickly learns your activity style, and even your drink order. When trying something new, they’ll hold your hand (with sanitizer) until you get the knack. Guides are trained to protect you from wild things, and they’re full of facts and eager to share. So fire off your questions about the funny-looking bird. Sit in on an after-dinner talk about glaciology or whale migration. And don’t be shy about asking for what you need in your cabin or with your meal. Requests are happily met with a “let me see what I can do.” It’s crew’s unique talents, love of travel, and a deep respect and appreciation for the places we visit that shape your adventures. Trust us— you’ll be raving, too.

“You have terrific staff with amazing knowledge. They are talented and good storytellers—your staff all around enhanced my experience—from housekeeping, restaurant, bar, guides and boat captains, they all excel in what they do.”

— Caroline B; New Brighton, MN (Alaska 2019)

Safe & Sound It’s a safe environment. Your own bubble in the wild. And we’ll do our darndest to keep it that way. Prior to getting on board an UnCruise, precautions are taken to ensure guests and crew alike arrive healthy and the risk of spreading a bug is minimized during your cruise. Crew members are fastidious about cleaning and safety protocols. There are no buffets during meals and social hour appetizers are individually served. Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout each boat, and depending on what’s happening in the world, our crew will even mask up, and ask you to do likewise. Your captain and crew even conduct safety drills and demonstrate the best maneuvers that’ll have you as surefooted as a goat. The beauty of small boats (one of many) is you travel in small groups. No queuing up hoping to get in on the action or FOMO. There is room for everybody no matter how you choose to spend your time. Kicked back or go, go, go. Presentations from your expedition team can happen outside on deck or in the lounge. And on most boats, you can even listen in from your cabin. Questions about the wildlife? Just ask (or, seek your answer in the onboard library). Want to up your knot tying skills? Grab a rope and head to the deck. Meet your new BFF? It’s likely. Life on board really does create bonds. Life on board is relaxing, too. From the cozy Safari Quest to big sister Wilderness Legacy , every boat creates community and the atmosphere is casual and intimate. Share a laugh and cocktail in the lounge with your new adventure community . Chat up your captain and mates on the open bridge. Watch for wildlife or take a quiet moment on the bow. There is something for everyone, from ages 8 - 88 and on.

“I am, each time, very impressed by your work, health, and safety standards and practices for both guests and staff alike. …Very enjoyable, relaxing, and safe, from the captain down! Cheers!”

—Sara S; Crafers West, Australia (Mexico, 2019)

Sustainability For 25 years, we’ve delivered experiences that enable us to make a difference. These encounters leave a lasting impact and, we hope, encourage our guests to care more about protecting the environment the way we do. We’ve implemented responsible practices to lessen our footprint. Replacing engines for more efficient models, eliminating single-use water bottles by offering refillable bottles instead, providing reef-safe sunscreen, and removing trash left by others. Sometimes it’s not good enough to leave a place the way we found it. Leave no trace, ours or otherwise — that’s our intention, wherever we travel. At UnCruise Adventures, we evaluate our actions every step of the way. From itinerary planning and operations management to adhering to codes of conduct that protect wildlife like the Marine Mammal Protection Act and NOAA Humpback Whale Approach Regulations. And, we work with partners like the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program to ensure best practices Our adventures also impact local communities. From sourcing fresh ingredients from local farmers and fishermen, to partnering with native groups for cultural exchanges, we look for ways to share the wealth and support the lives of those we meet. At our core all team members believe we are stewards of the lands where we travel. “Take only photographs, leave only footprints, make unforgettable memories.” You can download our sustainability protocols on our press page and view our local and sustainable partnerships that are making a difference for our company, our crew and the communities we work in. “Greatly appreciated the focus on environmentally friendly practices. H2O bottles, cleaning products, paper straws, etc. mean a great deal to us. The care and compassion shared by all staff with our family was utterly extraordinary.”

— Marc C; San Diego, CA (Costa Rica Panamá 2019)

Local. Fresh. Inspired. Taste where you travel. Along the Sea of Cortés, a dedicated plot of land supplies your boat with the brightest beets and a rainbow of carrots. In Hawaii, a small organic Molokai farm grows your purple sweet potato—then it’s roasted with chimichurri sauce—and their pineapple, topped with mascarpone ice cream and a banana bread crumble. Yum. In Costa Rica, locally grown plantains, patacones, are sliced and fried for a tasty treat. Further north in Alaska, a micro-grower out of Juneau provides greens with a sweetness and spiciness that makes what’s on your plate pop. Small greens, BIG flavors. In the water yesterday, and in the galley today, we believe in keeping it fresh and sourced from the best local partners in our communities. At sea in our tropical destinations, red snapper and seabass are hand caught by local fishermen—one line, one hook, and live bait. Fish caught within miles of where you sail. Shift your latitude, and Alaska’s Icy Strait provides sustainable seafood caught by generations o locals. As the first cruise line ever to participate in the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program, we’re proud to be a sustaining partner serving only seafood they list as a “Best Choice” or “Good Alternative” aboard our vessels. Our “local” means relationships with local families and small-scale fishermen that support the community. Good for our land and oceans, as well our chefs who prepare it —and good for you, too. Inspiration is from our hearts: ocean-friendly, field to table, and baked-onboard breads and desserts with the pastry chef’s personal flair. Sample the region and taste the love.

On the Menu Big days and full bellies. Early-riser breakfast in the lounge? Of course. Or, head to the dining room for the full deal. Lunches and dinners are created with thoughtfulness given to the region, weather, and activities: a glacier skiff ride and a hot bowl of soup, or a sun-blanketed hike paired with a cooling gazpacho. And sweet treats like chocolate opera cake, decadent chocolates and sweet cakes are whipped up for you twice a day. Unless there’s a special barbecue or lunch on shore, most dinners are served over several courses. You’ll be constantly amazed at what our chefs prepare in a tiny galley… but you can always count on options. All meals offer a choice of seafood, meat, and vegetarian dishes. If you can’t decide, try a sampling of two or three! And yes, with advanced notice special dietary needs are affably accommodated—and delicious. Celebrating a special occasion on board? Let us know when you book. Our expert pastry chefs are happy to help you commemorate the day. — Sample Breakfast Menu — Avocado toast topped with pesto, grilled tomato, poached eggs & red pepper sabayon. Prosciutto, asparagus & goat cheese omelet. Banana pecanpancakes. Roasted sweet potato. Sausage, bacon & ham or fresh baked pastries.

— Sample Dinner Menu — Field greens with fresh berries, goat cheese, crispy almonds & roasted shallot vinaigrette Baked-on-board rosemary focaccia finished with caramelized onions & extra virgin olive oil Seared Alaskan sockeye salmon with glazed fennel, lentils, roasted cauliflower & lemon crème fraîche — or — Roasted beef tenderloin with roasted fingerlings, asparagus, red onion jam & shallot demi-glace — or — Summer squash and tomato Napoleon layered with boursin & pomegranate balsamico Caramel chocolate ganache tart with orange segments, salted pistachios & sage whipped cream

Spirit of the Bar The ship’s lounge quickly becomes your local—familiar faces and local beverages. Sample a beer from a regional brewer or our other rotating taps. Taste your way through cask wines like Washington and Oregon varietals. No matter the style of the bar—from the Wilderness Discoverer’s beautiful bar top carved from Alaskan cedar to La Pinta’s elegant Sky Lounge—each lounge has its own vibe. And its own expert bartender. Classic cocktails come with inventive twists, innovative tiki drinks showcase fresh fruit juices, and gin and vodka from our favorite Juneau distillery make for endless experimentations. Yup, even the drinks are local, right down to the blackberry liquor and house-made mixers. Bartenders are happy to shake up (or stir) your requests, but what they really love to do is learn what you like and impress. Inspiration for the cocktail of the day comes from your adventures. Top off a bushwhack with a bramble cocktail, toast with your kayaking buddy to an afternoon well spent, or try out a local rum with your dinner companion. Pick your pleasure and cheers to adventure: all beverages are included in the fare. May every sip be flavorful and filled with stories to share!

“OMG. We are happy foodies. Nice wine selection, love the local influence and applied creativity in the bar.”

— Jeanine R; Ft. Knox, KY (Alaska 2018)

Solo Travel Introspection and easy connections. Traveling solo means all the alone time, curling up with a good book, and reflection you crave with the bonus of being surrounded by like-minded explorers. Like “summer camp for adults!” some say, and we agree. The logistics are planned, but beyond that it’s up to you what to do. Guides and crew know you by name and it’s not long before you and your shipmates are on a first-name basis. Be ready for discovery, connection, and laughter—meeting fellow adventurers over shared experiences.

Making Solo Travel Better:

Friendly rates (you don’t pay double!) Safe, comfortable environment

• •

• Buddy system during adventure activities—snorkeling, kayaking, hiking • Time for beach walks, stargazing, and hikes in small groups • Freedom to find quiet solitude, or the company of others, when you want it

“I was coming as a single and wondered if I’d fit in, could I keep up, etc. But these concerns vanished immediately. The atmosphere on board is relaxed and warm.”

Alaska

As the morning mist rises, climb in a skiff and head for the glacier. Feel the chill winding through icebergs, like tiny frozen islands. Curious seals bob their heads and sea lions flash their telltale pointy ears letting you know you’re on track—chasing a wall of ice back in time. Your skiff’s “ ooohs ” and “ aahs” at these “Alaska natives” get bigger, when there’s the biggest “ah” of all: Dawes Glacier. With a thunderous crack, ice crashes down. Grab your gear and suit up. Rain or shine, it’s time to live life on the outside. From skiff and beachcomb to bushwhack and kayak, Alaska’s expansive landscape is where it all began for UnCruise Adventures. Yet we’ve never lost our fascination for this wild place. We still gasp at the greatness of Glacier Bay National Park. You will too. And with remote adventures, there are even more places to be found. We launch kayaks, skiffs, and paddle boards right from our vessels. Paddle in a tiny cove or pull on your rubber boots and head to the forest. Chattering seabirds, and pure curiosity, lead the way. Alaska is the perfect bucket list place for families, groups, couples, and solo travelers to create adventure. Our small group sailings take you places others can’t. Join us for early Spring adventures that go beyond expectation with Alaska Awakening April to mid-May. Discover dancing Northern Lights, awakening wildlife, and winter playgrounds in remote locations. We create unparalleled value. From your very first in q uiry, expect personalized service and expertise—and a host of benefits that make us uni qu e. Think big by cruising small.

Vancouver Island

Pacific Northwest

A kayaker’s heaven. Eagles above lure you around the bend for a quiet communing with nature. That is, until your expedition guide gives a shout alerting you to petroglyphs on the canyon wall or “orcas at three o’clock!” Circle up and check it out. Life’s little surprises have a lot to say. From the graceful winding channels of the San Juan Islands to the steep walls of the Columbia River Gorge, meanderings in the Pacific Northwest put you somewhere unique. Paddle up to a bird rookery, examine rock formations from the skiff, or get an adrenaline rush in class III whitewater rapids. Out here, a hike for every level means just that. Casual beachcombers can poke around tide pools and panoramic views reward from high above the river. Spot a bald eagle snatching a live salmon. Hear a chorus of sea lions bark. Temperate rainforest, canyons, vineyards, and waterfalls. Listen and find your place.

Snorkel and kayak with neon fish and green sea turtles. Cruise the Humpback National Marine Sanctuary watching for wildlife. Hike over fields of lava, to a waterfall, or to view Lana‘i’s sweetheart rock. Tour a coffee plantation. Talk story with locals as they pound taro into poi.
