The Yacht – After cruising in SE Alaska for several years, we named our current boat Quiet Chaos.  The name says it all.  Cruising in SE Alaska is long periods of serene peace and quiet, interrupted by moments of adrenaline surging chaos.   That is what we love about it.  There is always something different to see and somewhere new  to explore.

Fishing Boat – Our fishing boat is Reel Chaos, an 25′ custom built aluminum boat with fully enclosed cabin for up to 6.  This is where the most of the chaos happens.  Whether it is fighting a big king, landing a halibut that barely fits in the boat, getting up close to whales, or nudging amazing blue icebergs.  Reel Chaos can take you there.  We also team with the best local guides for private fishing excursions.

Dinghy – Then there is our 10′ dinghy, Little Chaos.  This is the perfect landing craft for taking to shore to do a day hike or exploring.  The dinghy is the perfect way to cruise the shorelines and rocks.  We frequently will catch salmon from the dinghy, which is more fun than you can imagine.
