Alaskan Dream Cruises

Alaskan Dream Cruises explores Alaska through the lens of authentic Alaskans. By meeting and spending time with real Alaskans, Alaskan Dream guests experience an unfiltered Alaska.

Alaskan Dream Cruises History

Allen Marine, the parent company of Alaskan Dream Cruises, pioneered aluminum high-speed passenger vessels with water jet propulsion systems. The company was started 1967 by Bob and Betty Allen with deep Alaskan roots running through exploration, industry and the Tlingit Kaagwaantaan Clan. The company’s operation of 27 day boats also provides an important infrastructure for the success of Alaskan Dream Cruises. The company began multi-night Alaskan cruises in 2010 after they acquired two former Cruise West small ships and a high-speed catamaran formerly operated by Glacier Bay Tours and Cruises. 

Alaskan Dream Cruises

Alaskan Dream Cruises operates intimate, newly renovated small ships ideally suited for exploring off the beaten path. The fleet includes the 42-guest Alaskan Dream, the 66-guest Admiralty Dream and the 49-guest Baranof Dream.

Thoughtful handcrafted itineraries include marquee attractions like Glacier Bay National Park, Tracy Arm and Misty Fjords plus rare, out-of-the-way places like Kasaan, Kake, Thorne Bay and a private calling at Hobart Bay. Explore the Alaska less traveled on itineraries that spend more time in those rare, authentic places with extraordinary scenic qualities, historical significance and abundant wildlife. Enjoy at least one and sometimes two intriguing shore excursions in each port of call that showcase true Alaskan adventure and colorful native heritage.
