“Dependable, comfortable PWS charter”
Review of Chugach Coastal Cruising - CLOSED

Chugach Coastal Cruising
Reviewed 26 March 2013

We chartered Chugach Coastal Cruising to transport ourselves plus freight to a Prince William Sound destination accessible only by water. Our experience was entirely enjoyable. Alcyon’s pilot was courteous and accommodated our schedule and unique needs. All communications prior to launch were clear and timely. The ride itself was very comfortable on the clean, well-maintained boat. The pilot is a competent and experienced boater who easily passes on local knowledge. Safety protocols were obvious and practiced. The ride is reasonably priced and an efficient, worry-free way to get between ports and beaches.

I work for a TV production company and we used Chugach for some filming around Valdez harbour and Columbia Glacier. They were a very experienced and professional crew and went out of their way to be helpful, also very nice people. Would highly recommend.

Chugach Coastal Cruising is an excellent choice for tours of Prince William Sound or shuttles for backcountry skiers interested in getting out of the fray of Thompson Pass. The boat is clean and comfortable and the Hocking brothers are excellent guides. Friendly, knowledgable, and professional, these guys know how to help you discover the natural beauty, birds, animals and sea life of Prince William Sound. Definitely recommend them.

We had a short stay in Valdez on our way from Fairbanks to Whittier, so we didn't have a lot of time. Still, I really wanted to see Valdez harbor since it looked so beautiful in the pictures. Unfortunately, we had the worst weather of the trip during our stay in Valdez, and I wasn't sure whether Chugach would still take us out. Scott, our captain and owner of the boat, was incredibly accommodating and was willing to either cancel the trip (risk of rough water), cut it short or re-schedule. We decided to go ahead, and Scott gave us a great, personalized tour of the harbor. His boat has an interior cabin (with a heater and a head) as well as outdoor seating. We went all around the harbor in about 2 hours, saw otters, seals, eagles and beautiful mountain ranges. It was everything I expected: an up-close view of the harbor with a friendly and knowledgable captain.
