Alaska Tours with WhaleCoast Alaska

WhaleCoast Alaska

A More Authentic
Alaskan Tour Experience

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.

Supporting Unitarian Universalist
Congregations in Alaska

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 has completed a major remodel of their church. The Juneau and Sitka congregations have used their tour income to bring professional ministry to their congregations and make building improvements. If both tours sell out this year, the Alaska UU congregations will collectively raise over $60,000. Over the past 30 years, a total of over $847,000 has been raised for the work of these congregations. Nearly 1,800 guests have visited Alaska with our program.

Guests Love Our Tours!

“Wonderful! The activities are high quality, and it is great to meet local people. We really experienced the places we visited ‘from the inside’, through the eyes of the people who live here.”

Seattle, Washington

“We had a great time with a great group and certainly appreciated your attention to detail and the variety of activities you planned. We had once thought we could do this ourselves but when we saw your WhaleCoast itinerary, we knew we’d rather have someone do all the arranging for us. And we were right!”

“Takes my breath away! Splendidly conceptualized, organized, and executed. The supporting cast of UU volunteers and their generosity, hospitality, reliability, and warmth was WOW!”
