Review of Wilderness Discoverer

Wilderness Discoverer was built in 1992 by “Blount Boats” ship building company.

Ship’s hull design and her shallow draft allow easy access to Alaska’s wildlife and a variety of adventure excursions. Each Un-Cruise Adventures’ ship navigates together with a fishing boat that is fully-equipped.Wilderness Discoverer
