The Island Spirit carries up to 32 passengers overnight in 17 comfortable staterooms. Each room has a private bath and shower, as well as a minimum of one large opening window for wonderful views and fresh air ventilation during your Alaska cruise.

The Island Spirit is a three deck U.S. Coast Guard licensed and inspected passenger vessel. Originally built in 1978 as an oil field supply vessel, she is all-aluminum and heavily constructed. There are two staircases for access between decks. The stairs are brightly lit and are easy to navigate with handrails.

Although the Island Spirit cruises in primarily protected waterways, the Island Spirit has been upgraded to 2010 USCG vessel standards. The vessel utilizes fin stabilizers and a reshaped hull for extra stability and cruising comfort.

This Vessel Is Blue, But the Impact Is Green!
The vessel was completely rebuilt and re-powered in 2002 with Caterpillar marine engines. These new state-of-the-art engines meet all existing EPA low pollution standards. The Island Spirit continues to set the benchmark for low impact on the environment.

The Island Spirit is the only US Coast Guard licensed small ship to power guest and public areas by batteries at night. The Island Spirit utilizes excess power during the day to charge up for super quiet evenings. Engines are not run at night so you'll sleep right. Imagine anchoring in pristine Alaskan bays on such a quiet vessel.

On the Island Spirit, all of the ship's liquids are treated prior to discharge — even your shower and sink water. All galley sinks are also treated.
