May - 8 Day Inside Passage with Capt Eric aboard the Alaskan Dream. This was a 50th Birthday present, something I have always wanted to do and I was not disappointed! We shared the ship with some Sitkan local legends, who added fascinating history and local knowledge to our experience. Two young men from Native Voices added Tlingit and Haida... More

We really enjoyed our nature tour on board one of the boats. We found the staff to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Each tour is different to accommodate the wildlife. We learned about the migration of bears and whales and were lucky enough to spot both. It truly was an awesome way to spend the day. The only drawback was... More

This was a side trip from our Regent SS Alaskan Cruise in September 2016 and what a highlight it was. We hadn't realised when we booked a few months previously that the 'Wildlife' was to be Whales. We were taken around the beautiful bays to rafts of the cutest Sea Otters, we spotted Eagles close up and many other birds... More

I was with a private group which booked with Allen Marine's Jet-Cat Wildlife Quest & Beach Explorer. We first saw the cutest group of sea otters that were just hanging out and enjoying the day. As we continued on than it happened we were surrounded by a pod of 20 humpback whales. It was mystical. Than our guides took us... More

My wife and I took the trip yesterday and were very largely pleased with one large gripe that made me think of giving a score of only four stars. There were maybe 35 or 40 folks aboard on a very clean double deck vessel that could have carried many more. Boarding from the Norwegian Jewel was completed in a light... More

Capt. Eric and the Crew of the Alaskan Dream did an outstanding job hosting this once in a lifetime cruise. Everything was perfect. This is the best way to see Alaska. The food was excellent and each port of call was great. I would highly recommend this boat and crew. You won't be disappointed.

recently took a small boat cruise in Alaska on ALASKA DREAM CRUISES. How they reacted to a problem was just amazing and I want to share it with you and also please let others know if they are contemplating a small boat Alaska Cruise. We were scheduled to take a 9 day cruise on their smallest boat, a catamaran. The... More

We took this trip as part of a Regent Cruise excursion. Had a great morning, spotting otters almost straightaway and then so many whales we couldn't count them. They were really up close. Also bald eagles and some sea lions. The trip was comfortable and informative. We were disappointed not to see a bear but nothing's promised and they are... More

What a wonderful 8 day trip on a small ship. Great food and service. The views are unmatched. Glaciers, whales, mountains, and other animal life was a sight to behold. Top notch company

We booked 3 tours with Allen Marine while on a recent vacation to Alaska. Our tours were in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Sitka. Each was a unique, enjoyable experience. All of our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a terrific time, and highly recommend this company if looking for tours in these areas.
