UnCruise Adventures launches 2018 schedule

UnCruise Adventures has launched its 2018 schedule of small ship cruises highlighted by a new adventure itinerary on the Columbia and Snake Rivers, plus a fresh lineup of itineraries and an expanded selection of ships in Alaska.

The 88-guest S.S. Legacy transforms into an adventure equipped ship to offer kayaking, paddle boarding, skiff excursions, hikes on remote trails, whitewater rafting down the Deschutes River as well as other active adventures. New in 2018, the ship heads to Alaska from April through mid-August, then sails on the Columbia and Snake Rivers from August through November.

Based in Seattle, Washington, the line operates eight adventure ships, plus a partner vessel in the Galápagos, carrying 22-88 guests in Alaska, coastal Washington, British Columbia, Columbia & Snake Rivers, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Hawaii, Galápagos, Costa Rica and Panamà.

“The Columbia & Snake River system is an outdoor enthusiasts’ mecca, and extending our style of adventure there is a natural fit,” said Captain Dan Blanchard, CEO. “In order to make it an UnCruise, we need to slow down, take time to kayak, sightsee by skiff, and go hiking. We purposely build flexibility into our itineraries to make each day the best day possible.”

The 2018 itineraries include:

  • Columbia and Snake River cruise
  • Southeast Alaska
  • Costa Rica & Panama
  • Panama
  • Mexico`s Sea of Cortes
  • Galapagos Islands
  • Hawaiian Islands
  • Coastal Washington and British Columbia

With a focus on exploring nature and wildlife outside, the line carries its own adventure equipment and employs a team of knowledgeable expedition guides to lead adventures off ship. Guests are immersed in the destination and can choose from varying levels of activities—kayaking, hiking, beachcombing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, skiff excursions and wildlife searches.

Inclusive cruises are available in nine destinations and include fresh, innovative meals; all beverages including alcohol; adventure activities; transfers day of cruise and wellness amenities. Port taxes and fees are additional.

Theme cruise topics include photography, marine biology, ornithology, music, wellness, wine and craft beer. A family Discoveries program encourages families to bring children eight years and older along with a savings of $500 for kids ages eight to 13 years old.
