Auklet Charter Services is different from other charter operations that run on set routes and schedules. The way we book our trips is affected by the specialized and custom nature of our services, especially in relation to our continuing involvement with agency and research work. Often our schedule does not begin to settle out until after the first of the year. Please contact us for details.

There have been tremendous improvements to cell phone and internet coverage in Prince William Sound. There are still gaps in the coverage. Depending on our route it may take a day or two to respond to an email or voice message.

Auklet Charter Services is based in Cordova but we work out of all Prince William Sound ports: Cordova, Valdez and Whittier. This means your trip does not have to start and finish in the same community.
