Whales, Glaciers, Hiking and More!

We offer full day and half day adventures aboard the 'Pelican'. Whale watching, glacier tours and hiking are just some of the options. Petersburg is located in the heart of the Alaska Inside Passage. It is a great jumping off place for all sorts of Alaskan adventures.

The 'Pelican' is a sturdy, 26 foot aluminum landing craft with heated cabin aft for a comfortable ride. The front deck has lots of open space for observation and photography or gear transport. The bow has a drop down ramp perfect for wilderness beachcombing or unloading kayaks and gear.
