I interviewed UnCruise Adventures owner and CEO, Dan Blanchard on the podcast today.
We’re pleased to welcome UnCruise Adventures CEO and Owner Dan Blanchard to the podcast today. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this incredible cruise experience focused on exploration, UnCruise offers Small boat adventure cruises which sail in Alaska, Mexico’s Sea of Cortes, Hawaii, Columbia and Snake Rivers, Pacific Northwest, Costa Rica, Panama, Belize, Colombia, and the Galápagos. In fact, Uncruise has been back in service for months with voyages in Alaska.
Captain Dan Blanchard grew up in Washington State, living and working on boats since he was a kid. He spent years exploring winding waterways, beachcombing on remote shores, oyster picking and clam digging, and learning to skin dive. Dan also has a podcast called No Ordinary Adventure, where he shares stories about his time on the sea, sustainable travel, industry news, travel tips and more. Dan has built a dream out of his passions!
We have the opportunity ask Dan some interesting questions, and by the end of this podcast, you’ll have a feel for what Uncruise offers, and who these small ship experiences are right for. Let’s get into the interview!
Here’s a few of the questions I’ll be asking Dan in this interview
- Tell us a little about the UnCruise experience and your vessels.
- What is life onboard like, and how is it different from a typical “cruise”?
- Last year, you celebrated your 25th anniversary as a company. It must feel incredible to be getting back to cruising in 2021, but what has the last year and a half looked like for UnCruise?
- What surprises guests the most about your voyages?
- What type of traveler will enjoy this type of cruise?
- What are your PERSONAL “top two” destinations that UnCruise visits?
- I understand that in 2013, you were adopted into a native Alaskan Tlingit tribe- tell us more about that!
- Where can we find you on social media and the web?

Here’s what people are saying about the CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast
- Newbie CruiserJune 25, 2022 by Bizymom3kids from United States
I have been a quite admirer(almost said secret but that sounds creepy) for over 3 months now! Sheri you’ve given birth to another child! This newborn cruiser is ready for our first cruise from Galveston on board Carnival Breeze in August, thanks to you and your phenomenal family! I have officially listened to every podcast and watched every video! I feel like an expert cruiser and I have not even walked the gangway yet! I absolutely love your positive and sweet approach to all things! Love you all so much!
- Top of the Line Cruise PodcastJune 21, 2022 by LisaContreras808 from United States
This awesome 5 STAR team creates the best format for information, listening ease, and a positive atmosphere. I learn so much that I am immediately able to use. I find myself revisiting topics as needed, which really enhances my cruise planning. My husband is surprised and pleased with my newfound efficient packing skills! I feel prepared and energized by the pre-cruise experience. Most of all, Sheri, Mr. CruiseTipsTV and Junior are down to earth, inspiring, warm and funny. Thank you so much for sharing yourselves and your experiences with us!

Really enjoy your content as it covers more than one brand! We especially find information on Alaska cruises helpful as we are doing Alaska this summer on Ruby Princess in an aft facing suite! Would love to get more content on Celebrity cruises as we tend to cruise more on Royal and Celebrity. We really don’t like Carnival.
