88' Sparkman & Stephens ketch

  SEA ANGEL - Cruising in Alaska summer 2007

Enjoy the luxury of choosing your own sailing companions, itinerary and schedule aboard this classic gentleman's yacht.  Popular starting points are Juneau, Petersburg and Sitka.  Here are two suggested routes:

      1.  Pick-up in Juneau.  Visit the glacier in Tracy Arm (by way of Stephens Passage) to hear the sound of calving ice fields, view countless water falls and enjoy smooth water.  Sail down to visit the bears on Admiralty Island, travel through Frederick Sound where the humpback whales breed, then on to Sitka to visit the historic Russian Orthodox Church and museum.  There is a rain forest trail lined with totem poles.

     2.  Pick-up in Petersburg.  Anchor in Le Conte Bay and visit the glacier by dinghy.  Travel through Frederick Sound to see the humpback whales and Stellar sea lions, maybe even killer whales.  Anchor off Admiralty Island at Kootznahoo, "fortress of the bear", to view the bears.  The next day, visit the small native Tlingit community, Kake and go on to Kuiu Island.  The drop-off in Kake or Petersburg.

Whatever the weather conditions, the spectacular scenery is easily viewed from the covered wheelhouse (which can be enclosed with roll-down plastic curtains) or snug inside through the deck saloon's large windows. 

Sea Angel's master suite extends the full width of the yacht and is appointed with a lady's dressing table, hanging closet and drawers built into the starboard side.   To port are identical drawers and closet plus a gentleman's desk.   There are 'his and hers' baths separated by a tub/shower.

Guest accommodations for four are in two identical en suite cabins with twin lower singles. 

Summer 2007 Rates    $23,500/4    $25,500/6 - plus all expenses

 Depart Ft. Lauderdale, March 28, 2007 - Arrive April 27 in Lisbon with stops in Bermuda and the Azores (Horta)

If you think making a transatlantic crossing means a 45' boat and hot-bunking (coming off watch and crawling into a berth someone has just left to go stand their watch) or sharing the solitude of the open sea with 800 other passengers, have we got an offer for you!

Join the 30 professional crew members on this beautiful, three-masted square rigger that can reach 17 knots under sail - 29 sails, actually.   Working on one of three watches, you will be actively involved with setting the sails, taking the helm and maybe even helping in the galley!  Fourteen air-conditioned luxury passenger suites each have two twin bunks (plus two Pullman berths), a writing desk and a very large bathroom.   

After dinner, enjoy evening presentations in the Long Room, including the captain's "recap of the day and position report", murder mysteries and the camaraderie of sailors from many different countries and walks of life.

"A great part of my unique experience was thanks to the crew. I wondered where they had found such friendly, enchanting, and helpful people".
