Celebrating 25 Years
Alaska may be North America’s last frontier, but here at UnCruise Adventures, it was our first—that was 25 years ago. Ever since, we’ve made it our business (quite literally) to go in search of fun and active adventure in spots where others can’t or don’t. Decades later, we’re proud to say we’re still doing it! Getting our start in 1996 as a small USA business, we pioneered yacht cruising in Alaska as American Safari Cruises with one small yacht. By 1999, two more small yachts had been acquired and our fearless leader Captain Dan Blanchard had joined the company as CEO. Fast forward to 2008, when Dan formed InnerSea Discoveries, LLC with longtime partner Tim Jacox (who retired in 2020) and they purchased American Safari Cruises. Their new venture included a name change in January 2013, from American Safari Cruises to UnCruise Adventures—we’re no ordinary cruise line—and there you have it. In line with our spirit of innovation, our fleet expanded over the years. First with smaller boutique-style yachts accommodating 12-36 guests, but 2009 began their foray with slightly larger boats—60-86 guests—that fulfilled a more ambitious vision of active small boat adventure cruises. The last vessel was acquired in 2013. By then, every boat in the fleet had amped up the adventure (in fact, it was more like a competition to see who could uncover the best kept secrets and do what their sister boats hadn’t). Along with our growing fleet, we’ve expanded the places we explore, too. Our operations grew beyond Alaska to include cruises in Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Hawaiian Islands, Pacific Northwest along the Columbia and Snake Rivers and the Salish Sea in Washington State, and a few more bucket-list adventures— Galápagos Islands, Costa Rica and Panamá (with a full transit of the Panamá Canal), and Belize and Guatemala. In 2021, there’s sure to be pent-up demand with others like yourself hankering to travel again. Come join us in our celebration of 25 years, we’d love to welcome you aboard.
