We were nice and warm in the cabin.They served coffee and hot chocolate. They also gave us snacks if you wanted them and they had other food and drinks... More

This tour offers guaranteed sitings of otters, raptors, and bears. The latter two are guaranteed because they take you to the Alaska Raptor Center and the Fortress of the Bear - both animal rescue and rehabilitation sites. However, we saw ALL of them on the water tour. Coastal brown bear with her two cubs, black tailed deer, loads of sea... More

We were actually on a John Hall's Alaska trip that takes place on the American Dream Cruise boat. It was wonderful. We started on an Allen Marine Tour boat that cruised the waters for about 4 hours and delivered us to our waiting "Baranof Dream" ship. This is not a "fancy" cruise. Everything is very casual. However, it being a... More

We had a wonderful time on this tour. The naturalist was very informative and the crew was great. It was a clear, warm, beautiful day as well.

After the first amazing day of our nine-day cruise, we were told that every day would be better than the last. Yeah, right... But it was true! We saw 100+ humpback whales, dozens of bald eagles ("Oh another bald eagle..."), mountain goats, otters, puffins, brown bears (Grizzlies), and lots of other birds. Spectacular scenery, including calving glaciers and blue icebergs.... More

We've travelled alot and this trip was one of our all time favourites! Alaskan Dream Cruises have mastered the small boat adventures. From the second you land in Sitka to the time you fly away after your cruise everything is exceptionally done. The crew lead by Captain Stu, our guides Steph and Lee were amazing. They're all so passionate about... More

We booked a last minute trip with our cruiseline with Allen Tours and it was a great time and we saw lots of wildlife (whales and otters) and lots of gorgeous scenery. The guides were knowledgeable and pointed out everything to everyone. Unfortunately for me I came down with the flu that morning and was miserable, I almost didn't go,... More

We bought the 'Sea Otter and Wildlife Quest' as a part of the cruise line bundle that included two other attractions - the Alaska Raptor Center and Fortress of the Bear. All three were top notch, but this review is about Allen Marine. As it turned out, the Allen Marine experience was the perfect way to start the day. The... More

My husband and I have just finished our Alaskan cruise of the inside passage with Alaskan Dream Cruises. I found it difficult to find a small boat cruise from Australia as the big cruise lines buy a load of internet space. Found Alaskan Dream Cruises and received information straight away and the staff were easy to deal with as was... More
