Legacy, you’re assured of a personalised voyage of discovery. Relax in luxurious surroundings whilst professional crew handle every detail. Each ship has a range of cabins available, from basic doubles and twins through to more spacious suites, all furnished with basic home comforts. Each ship features kayaks, paddleboards (except Pinta & Legacy) and skiffs, to enable you to also get out on the water and enjoy the amazing wildlife of the area up close and personal. Find yourself hiking to an amazing vista one minute and relaxing in the hot tub with cocktail in hand the next, then grab a cup of coffee and sit on the bridge trading stories with the Captain. UnCruise Adventures offer an experience you will never forget.


Unlike larger cruise liners, the manoeuvrability of UnCruise Adventures’ sleek and nimble yachts allows access to some of the most intricate and remote passages in North America. They are free to wander into unnamed coves, unsung vistas and passages, allowing you to witness spectacular scenery and come up-close to its wildlife, on itineraries through Alaska’s Inside Passage, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, the Hawaiian Islands, Coastal Washington, British Columbia, the Galapagos Islands and Costa Rica.


Enjoy the sincere welcome of local specialists and engaging experts, and benefit from their passion and knowledge for the areas visited. The Captain will often change course when whales are spotted on the horizon, or slow the engines if bears are foraging on the beach. UnCruise itineraries are designed to be flexible to allow for these opportune wildlife sightings. Once back on solid ground why not extend your holiday with one of the land itineraries? They perfectly complement any water adventure. If you have a particular passion, you may find one of the themed cruises of interest. They include ornithology, craft beers, musical entertainment, wellness, marine biology, wine and photography.
