You’ll be aboard the Veronica Mae, a 38-foot former commercial fishing boat from Kodiak that’s now a comfy vessel, complete with warm cabin, to take in the incredible scenery. The boat even has some of the old rigging on it, imbuing it with the charm of an Alaskan fishing village. And with a maximum of 6 passengers and a minimum of 4, you’ll be assured that your group will have an intimate experience.

Along the way, you’ll be keeping an eye out for a wide variety of wildlife, that might include sea otters, harbor seals, orcas, whales, puffins, bald eagles, Dall porpoise, and even the occasional bear.

You’ll also enjoy a delicious lunch by the glacier. Thanks to a full galley, owners Ginger and Jake will personally prepare a customized meal, which may include items like moose sausage, salmon burgers, pasta, and quinoa salad, plus desserts and snacks for the ride there and back.

This is the first year of operation for Sound Adventure Charters, but Ginger and Jake are longtime pros in the boating, tourism, and fishing businesses. They’re passionate and knowledgeable about the Prince William Sound area and will fill you in on everything there is to know about the glaciers and wildlife.
