Alaskan Harvest Boat in AlaskaNotes and Facts from the Captain

Ninety-five percent of Alaska’s Panhandle, also known as Southeast Alaska, is covered by the Tongass National Forest, the world’s last largest, fairly intact temperate rainforest, containing 17 million acres, or over 26,000 square miles.

Its western shore, or border, is characterized by an archipelago of hundreds of islands that increase its size by almost twice, being land and ocean.

The variety of wildlife here is phenomenal including but not limited to brown bear, sea otters, eagles, black bear, whale, salmon, Sitka deer, mountain goats, orcas, puffins, sea lions, seals, all sorts of sea birds and waterfowl, wolf, moose, land otters, mink, marten, trout, porpoises, etc.

Parker Guide Service, providing excursions throughout SE Alaska since 1990, has the knowledge, experience, and accommodations to provide you with the finest in service and quality trips. In the early years we used a 60' cruiser. In August 2007, we updated our vessel to the Alaskan Harvest, a custom built 80’ luxury cruiser.

It is our experience that there are few of this size cruisers available taking only small groups of 6 guests. We specialize in getting you up close and personal with S.E. Alaska, something you won’t find on a larger group based vessel and cruise tours. We give you a very intimate experience. Exclusive cruise tours are available for your specific group. Or you can share with others and bond with new found acquaintances.
