Swan Counting from Alaska

Okay, I know there's a swan count. I know that, by custom only the royals in the UK are allowed to --though they do not -- eat swans (with apparently a few exceptions, such as possibly St John's College Cambridge). But why is the Queen, on swan counting day, riding on a steamer -- and especially one named Alaska?
