Explore the beauty that is Southeast Alaska
the last great frontier
Cruising the waters of southeast Alaska is like being on no other body of water. The inland waterways are protected by the outer islands yet team with ocean life. It is not uncommon to gaze out 360 degrees and see no other sign of human habitation beyond the Alaskan Legend. A charter on the Alaskan Legend allows you to commune with nature at its most spectacular.
The water, wildlife, fishing, kayaking, and adventure all await you on board the Alaskan Legend. We promise you’ll enjoy the trip of a lifetime experiencing Alaska’s premier wilderness aboard the Alaskan Legend yacht!
The 87’ long Alaskan Legend is an ocean capable expedition yacht, properly outfitted, comfortably appointed, professionally staffed, and well suited to exploring the coastal waters of Southeast Alaska and the Tongass wilderness.
Our Captain has lived in Alaska the past 39+ years and has worked these waters for as many years. With intimate local knowledge he will guide you to the best that southeast Alaska has to offer while you enjoy the Alaskan Legend.
Southeast alaska and the tongass national forest
The Tongass is the world largest remaining temperate rain forest and is the largest national forest in the United States. Spanning 17 million acres and containing 19 designated Wilderness Areas, the coastal mountainous terrain of the Tongass encompasses the 1,100 island Alexander Archipelago. With vast glacial fjords and transboundary river systems, the 11,000 miles of Tongass shoreline sustains a diversity of habitats supporting abundant flora, wildlife and healthy populations of sea-birds and marine mammals.
The Alaskan Legend’s philosophy is to engage our guests in experiencing the natural wonders of Southeast Alaska. We support protection of the remarkable wilderness within the Tongass, believe in sustainable communities and business practices, and manage the vessel in an environmentally responsible and friendly manner.
