The 76-guest Wilderness Explorer is equipped for action, adventure, and exploration. As with our other expedition vessels, its interior complements the outside and public and private spaces are loaded with amenities. The vessel offers a main lounge featuring a Douglas fir bar top, dining room, and ample space on deck for taking in the great outdoors.

Three accessible decks are fully equipped for comfort and action. Guests enjoy over-the-top views from the bow or from under-the-stars in the hot tub (Alaska); on-deck sauna and fitness equipment; and the EZ Dock launch platform makes getting in the water a cinch, even for a novice. Onboard are kayaks; stand-up paddle boards; inflatable skiffs; hiking poles; yoga mats; and a hydrophone for listening below-surface.

The three cabin categories aboard the Wilderness Explorer: Trailblazer; Pathfinder; and Explorer provide single and double accommodation.

Common to all Wilderness Explorer cabins are: Flat-screen TV/DVD; and iPod docking station.
