About Sail Alaska Bob
Treat yourself to a sailing vacation along the scenic waters of Southeast Alaska! Enjoy the beauty of the Tongass National Forest–majestic mountains and undeveloped waterways. We will sail silently among the straits, bays, and inlets of the protected Inside Passage. S/V Bob is an efficient, powerful, modern 50 foot sloop which allows us to take advantage of any breeze to sail between the beautiful anchorages of Alaska. This is one of the most amazing Alaska activities imaginable - and you will not forget sailing with us. Don’t miss the boat! We offer captained & crewed charters between Sitka, Juneau, Petersburg, and Glacier Bay. Sit back and enjoy watching for whales, spotting bears and seabirds, or lend a hand with the salmon and halibut fishing, help pull the crab and shrimp pots, or trim the sails. Be as active as you'd like. As naturalists, we love to hike, kayak, and explore the remote wilderness beaches of Alaska with you. Limited to six passengers in 3 double private cabins.

We recently completed a week long photo based trip on sailboat Bob with Captain Blaine and his wife Monique. Along with another couple and photo workshop leader Barbara Eddy we had an amazing experience. Blaine and Mo have an amazing boat and were amazing hosts. If you are considering sailing the inside passage on a first class boat with a first class crew, do not overlook sailboat Bob. It will be a trip to remember forever.

It's not an exaggeration to say that cruising with Bob was a once in a lifetime experience. It's a perfect combination of fun and education, comfort and adventure, relaxation and excitement...if you can imagine experiencing the wildness and tranquillity of Alaska up close and personal, you'll probably get close to reality, but the reality of the trip is still better. My family, friends and I took Bob's Glacier Bay National Park tour in early August for ten days. I first got acquainted with Captain Blain Anderson when I made the inquiry about the trip beforehand, and he was so responsive and fun in our email exchanges that it was like a reunion with old friends when we finally met the Captain and his wife, Monique in person. Bob was very clean and well kept. The sitting room was spacious and comfortable. Each berth had its own head and shower. With a small but well-equipped kitchen both Monique and Blain made delicious and healthy food meal after meal, day after day. The trip was well planned. Each day was a combination of cruising and activities, such as fishing, kayaking, or hiking. We visited some historical sites, did berry-picking trips, caught halibut and a lot of Dungeness crabs, hiked in a rainforest, etc. In addition to countless humpback whales, we also saw Orcas, sea lions, sea otters, bears, goats - Blain and Monique knew where to look for the wild animals and pointed them out for us so we wouldn't miss a thing. By the end of the trip we saw all of the animals in the Glacier Bay National Park except one, porcupine. Blain and Monique were also the best naturalists. They knew the names of all sorts of vegetation in the forest. It was a lot of fun to walk on the trail and pick and eat wild berries left and right. Bob also had a full collection of books about Alaska, which gave us more opportunities to learn more. Blain and Monique patiently showed me the gauges on the boat, the sheets for different sails and some basic concepts of sailing. It was such a luxury to linger in one area and wait for humpback whales breaching, or hang out in front of a glacier and expect another big calving, or observing 13 mountain goats on one hill side quietly... I cannot speak highly enough about the wonderful time I had on Bob. I still keep the Bob website open on my computer and believe I will sail with Blain and Monique on Bob again.

This was the trip of a lifetime. It was the perfect mix of relaxation and more active days and I felt so rejuvenated after our 9-day trip. Captain Anderson and Monique are perfect hosts - I don't know how they make you feel so at ease. And they are fantastic chefs - we ate so well and everything was so fresh healthy and delicious. The majestic scenery and Alaskan wildlife....we were simply blown away by the beauty of it all. I was worried about a couple of things - being "stuck" on a boat for 9 days, and whether the accommodations would be comfortable. On both fronts, I was so pleasantly surprised. We were able to go ashore most days and go hiking, beachcombing, kayaking, etc. I never felt bored and we were also able to customize our level of activity each day. And I was impressed with the accommodations. Every cabin has its own private bathroom and shower and the rooms were surprisingly comfortable. I slept so well! All in all, highly recommend and I already want to go back!

This was an active trip with daily hikes, beach exploration, fishing, wildlife sightings and blissful sailing when winds were available. The host couple , both capable sailors, created an amazingly casual atmosphere aboard and yet were clearly in charge of guiding us through waters they knew well. The food was superb! We ended our week thinking when can we go on another of the sailboat BOB cruises.
