During two-hour tours—which can take place anytime between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. depending on availability—an American Sailing Association instructor welcomes groups of two or four aboard a 25-foot or larger Catalina or Beneteau sailboat. Passengers have the chance to help sail the boat as they view Resurrection Bay's deserted coves and the giant ice machine that creates its glaciers. Sailing, Inc., also lets groups bring food and beverages.
Crashing waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, and breathtaking glaciers surround Resurrection Bay. Sailing, Inc., an instructional academy and member of the American Sailing Association, calls this slice of the Alaskan coastline its home. On the water, certified instructors teach beginners' to advanced courses, covering everything from navigating moderate sea conditions in basic keelboat classes to sailing past a boat's bedtime in nighttime advanced coastal cruising classes. The captains occasionally take breaks from instruction to charter sailing tours. On these excursions, wind sweeps through passengers' hair as they explore deserted coves or wait for the warm glow of a midnight sunset to turn the boat back into a pumpkin.
