“My wife and I spent the weekend in Chicago where the topic of most of our conversation was the wonderful trip provided for us by Midnight Sun; It’s hard to do the trip justice in words. Even the video falls short. Suffice to say that we truly enjoyed not only the trip and the boat but the professional and friendly manner in which the trip was conducted. Alaska is a wonderful place to visit, particularly aboard the Midnight Sun”
– Charles Barthold., Executive Editor-Yachting Magazine

“Fishing with whales all around us was unbelievable! Waterfalls, icebergs, glaciers and wildlife abounds, plus we enjoyed the best of everything on board. Thank you for such a glorious adventure, we loved every minute of it”
– Jan O. Salt Lake City
