At 104 feet in length, the Alaskan Dream is an innovative, streamlined catamaran. Designed especially to allow the vessel to easily navigate narrow channels and passages like a yacht, while at the same time providing the comforts you would expect aboard a much larger ship.

Ship Amenities
The Alaskan Dream is built to provide the most of the Alaskan experience. The public lounge faces forward with the same view as the Captain, affording spectacular views of the scenery, ports and wildlife along the way. A selection of library of books that pertain to many aspects of Alaska such as history, geology, marine and wildlife is provided in the lounge, which is specially designed for marine and wildlife viewing. Afternoon and evening lecturers are offered to educate guests on the many fascinating aspects of Alaska history, geology, marine and wildlife.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
