Complete instruction, in-water supervision and entertaining narrative make this award-winning excursion suitable for beginners and experienced snorkelers alike.
Your excursion begins with a short drive from the pier to the snorkel shop, where you'll slip into your wetsuit in the comfort of a heated dressing room. You'll be toasty warm in this state-of-the-art, ¼-inch (7mm) wetsuit complete with hood, boots and gloves as you hover among Alaska's diverse and colorful marine life. Thanks to the Japanese Kiroshio current, long summer days and the lack of glaciers in this area, water temperatures reach a surprising 65 degrees Fahrenheit in summer.
Mountain Point is southeast Alaska's premier snorkeling destination. The shallow tide pools teem with marine life and steep underwater rock walls allow for free diving. Your guides, highly trained PADI professionals, equip you with prescription masks, Scubapro Twin Jet fins and optional weight belts for free diving.
Together, you'll climb down a rocky slope to the shore and enter the water from a protected beach. You'll observe and handle a variety of multicolored sea stars, urchins, sea cucumbers and the giant sunflower star during this one-hour guided marine-life tour. You'll discover the myriad of fish and colorful invertebrates that inhabit these waters while you snorkel over a kelp forest.
Back at the shop, you'll enjoy a hot beverage before returning to your ship.
This excursion was chosen last season by Princess passengers for overall tour quality and outstanding customer service and awarded Tour Guide of the Season in Ketchikan.
