    SNOW GOOSE

    Built with purpose, the Snow Goose was constructed in Ketchikan, Alaska in 1973 as a private yacht. She was designed by marine architect Ed Monk to cruise the Inside Passage and modified in 1983 to be a US Coast Guard inspected passenger vessel. Captain Dan Liden bought the Snow Goose in 2006 and has been putting her to work in a variety of ways ever since.

     

    The Snow Goose aims to deliver a unique and personal experience for passengers. Guided by our experienced and knowledgeable crew we take you to the remote waters, islands, and shorelines of the majestic and mysterious Southeast Alaska. Along the way we will teach you about marine mammals, wildlife and native vegetation. Whilst always providing a safe and enjoyable environment, the crew specifically aims to differentiate the Snow Goose from other vessels by enabling passengers to become involved in many aspects of boat life. From navigation to identifying plants and animals, we believe an interactive environment helps guests to experience Alaska up close and generates a sense of adventure and stewardship.

     

    In Alaska we rely on many modes of transportation and pride ourselves on the quality of equipment we provide. Our custom aluminum inflatable skiff was built locally in Washington State, specifically for operating in Alaska. The deep “V” hull and 90 hp outboard not only gets us to shore but also opens the door to exploration when on the anchor. As the ‘Gosling’ to the ‘Goose’, the skiff is extremely stable, reliable and a vital link to accessing the remote trails, rivers, and beaches we visit.

     

    As experienced kayakers, we know how a quality kayak paddles. So we’ve spared no expense on our six Carbonlite 2000 Eddyline Whisper double kayaks. They are great for beginners and advanced kayakers alike and provide the perfect way to peacefully explore remote areas on your own. We provide all the necessary equipment to make your kayaking experience the most comfortable and awe-inspiring journey possible.

     

    We explore these waters with the same spirit that the Snow Goose has maintained since 1973 as researchers, stewards, students, and awestruck explorers. It’s with great pleasure that we welcome you aboard the Snow Goose. We want the boat to truly be your home away from home and will do everything we give you the best adventure southeast Alaska has to offer.
