View Larger Map

After a lengthy evaluation process, Alaska Yacht Charters has been awarded a permit for Glacier Bay National Park. The Alaskan Story is one of only five yachts over 50 feet to be allowed to charter from June through August within the waters of the crown jewel of the our national park system.

The National Park Service made its selections based on the financial strength, experience and environmental sensitivity of the competing charter companies. We are honored to be able to offer this experience to our guests.

Glacier Bay, perhaps the most spectacular fjord complex in the world, contains 13 active, calving, tidewater glaciers. These rivers of ice are born in the Fairweather and Takhinsha mountains which surround the Bay rising 15,000 feet above sea level.
