American Safari Cruises specializes in intimate, active, luxury yacht cruises. Itineraries focus on close-up viewing of wildlife, fine dining, and activities such as kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, sailing, and exploration by motorized Zodiac inflatables.
ASC was founded in 1996 to provide up-scale luxurious yacht cruises in Alaska's Inside Passage. The first season was in 1997 with a single yacht. In 1998, the company added a second yacht and a second Alaska itinerary. In 1999/2000, the company completed major refitting and interior redesign, adding staterooms on both yachts. The total cost was approximately $1 million per yacht. A third yacht was added to the fleet in 2001 with two more yachts added in 2007.
