This article presents information on adventure trips to Alaska offered by MV Sea Wolf for paraplegics. The Sea Wolf is a 97-foot former U.S. Navy harbor minesweeper, turned private yacht, turned charter vessel. Current owners Rusty and Kimberly Owen retrofitted the Sea Wolf to make it accessible. With the help of Mike Passo, technical consultant and paraplegic, the new boat became very doable for an adventurer who uses a chair. One reason people choose the Sea Wolf is to experience Alaska up close and personal. Kayaking is a wonderful way to blend into the environment and see wildlife at eye level. INSET: Access Anything.
