Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship

The small ship, Wilderness Adventurer, is an expedition ship capable of nimble exploration through nature’s most dramatic hideaways. The shallow draft and hull design allow easy access to Southeast Alaska’s wildlife-rich shores and glacially-fed inlets and serve as ideal “launching pads” for an exciting array of daily adventure excursions. A fully-equipped fishing boat also travels with each small ship.

Life aboard the Wilderness Adventurer
The interior spaces offer contemporary colors and brushed metals that complement the wilderness outside and both the public and private spaces are loaded with special amenities.

Large flat screen TVs in the main salon are available to show personal videos captured during the excursions while everyone gathers together at night - spawning lively discussion on the most amazing encounter or the best "fish story." A large selection of micro-brews, wine and spirits are available for purchase at the bar while reliving the day's activities. Educational presentations from the onboard Naturalists are also broadcast on certain nights in the salon and into the cabins.

Evenings onboard ship offer opportunities to relax with a good book, rejuvenate with a massage or rejoice with your fellow adventurers. Each day offers a cocktail hour followed by a delicious and healthy meal, plus opportunities to learn from locals and onboard Expedition Leaders/Naturalists.

While comfortable public areas encourage engaging conversations and cozy relaxation, you may also choose to retreat to your cabin to watch a DVD or view videos taken during the day by your fellow shipmates as they are piped in from the central control station.

Each ship has a large resource library and hundreds of DVD titles.

Cabin Amenities
Each cabin offers private facilities and view windows. Each cabin also has an iPod docking station. The bathrooms feature a hair dryer and sundries such as shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion.

The ships are equipped with flat screen TVs/DVDs in each cabin. All cabins are linked electronically so that videos shot during each day can be shared across the ship on designated channels.

Daily Excursions
Wilderness Adventurer provides most of the gear required for your explorations. Each ship is equipped with kayaks, drysuits, snorkeling gear, paddle boards, inflatable boats, trekking poles, reuseable water bottles and overnight camping gear.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
