WhaleCoast Alaska

WhaleCoast Alaska is a Unitarian Universalist eco-cultural and spiritual program for people who are looking for a more authentic Alaskan experience. WhaleCoast Alaska is operated in cooperation with four UU Alaska fellowships – Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and Sitka – that provide home stays, dinner parties, activities, and transportation for the guests.

Significant funds raised through WhaleCoast Alaska helped finance the construction of the farthest north UU church in the world in Fairbanks. The Anchorage UU congregation recently moved into a beautiful new sanctuary with the help of tour proceeds. In 2015, the participating Alaska congregations raised over $36,000 through WhaleCoast Alaska. Over the past 23 years, a total of over $430,000 has been raised for the work of these congregations. Over a thousand guests have visited Alaska with our program.

We travel throughout Alaska to see wildlife in their natural habitats – humpback and killer whales, sea lions, seals and sea otters; bears, wolves, moose, caribou, Dall sheep, eagles, murres, puffins and other birds in some of North America's most beautiful scenery. We have planned two exciting tours for 2016:
