Phillips Cruises & Tours, LLC

For the past 22 years, Phillips Cruises & Tours, LLC, has brought the splendor of Prince William Sound to travelers from around the world. The alpine, piedmont and calving tidewater glaciers plus the magnificent wild life draw people to Prince William Sound, and the folks at Phillips help provide memories that last a lifetime.

Aboard the M/V Klondike Express, a 137 foot, high-speed catamaran, passengers can relax and take in the scenery in the luxury of a heated cabin with large picture windows. There isn't a bad seat in the gallery. Cruising through the calm, protected waters of Prince William Sound, you come face- to-face with towering masses of ice, migratory whales and breathtaking Alaska scenery. This is one adventure that is fun and memorable for the whole family.

In September 2007, AIDEA participated at 90 percent with Key Bank in a business loan for the long-term refinancing of the existing debt on the M/ V Klondike Express.

Through the AIDEA and Key Bank partnership, Phillips Cruises & Tours continues to share 135 miles of glaciers, marine wildlife and some of the most breathtaking scenery on earth with Alaskans and visiting friends and relatives.

"AIDEA was easy to deal with. They were able to lower and fix the interest rate, which increased cash flow and improved the profitability of the company."
