For the second year in a row, small yacht cruise specialists Discovery Voyages have pledged to donate one hundred percent of the trip fees from a 5 day/4 night voyage inside Alaska’s Prince William Sound to Braided River, a non-profit publisher dedicated to protecting wild places across western North America.
These “benefit cruises” are supporting the creation of a new book from Braided River which will offer a rich and evocative portrait of a “Wilderness worthy” stretch of the Chugach National Forest. Alaska-based conservation groups will be able to use this book to help rally the public support needed in order to permanently protect the 2.1 million acre Nellie Juan-College Fjord Wilderness Study Area.
This year’s benefit cruise adventure runs May 18 to 23, 2017.
Participants will get close to the unique fauna and flora of Prince William Sound with expert naturalists, including author Debbie S. Miller.
This classic encounter with the world-class beauty of Prince William Sound offers opportunities to visit wildflower meadows, hike on rainforest trails, see calving glaciers, watch whales and other marine mammals, and exlpore rich tidewaters through kayaking.
For those on board, it is an incredible opportunity to enjoy a memorable vacation in Prince William Sound aboard a ship with just 11 other passengers while supporting important conservation work at the same time.
The $4,000 per person price is all-inclusive, and includes accommodations in downtown Anchorage on May 18 and May 23, and four nights lodging aboard the M/V Discovery. All activity levels welcomed. Two berths were still available as of April 17, 2017.
