Alaska Yacht Charter Information

Alaska and the many surrounding islands, channels, straits and sounds provide excellent power yacht chartering and sailing conditions. A sailing window from spring to summer provides the best conditions. Sailing farther south around Juneau yields better conditions for later seasonal sailing with winds anywhere from 5-20 knots. Climate conditions in the winter produce erratic winds, where snow and ice can cause havoc. Yacht charter vacations in Alaska near Glacier Bay National Park through Favorite Channel and due north will take you to Skagway Alaska via the Taiya Inlet. The line-of-sight in the area is good with plenty of moorings as you come to bigger harbors. Winds are reportedly consistent and open water sailing is possible in the Gulf of Alaska.
