Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This adventure begins as soon as you leave Ketchikan's picturesque harbor, passing colorful float planes and fishing boats en route to a wilderness experience you'll never forget. Enjoy the service and narrative provided by your crew, and watch for marine and coastal wildlife as you "fly" at sea level past the rugged coastlines bordering Revillagigedo Channel.

Voyage into Behm Canal, surrounded by the pristine beauty of Misty Fjords. Along the way you'll stop to view an active bald eagle's nest, a Tlingit pictograph and New Eddystone Rock: an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea. Delight in the unhurried exploration of Rudyerd Bay, an ice-carved masterpiece deep within the monument. Here, you'll learn the natural history of the fjords, listen to the call of nesting seabirds, and feel the mist of glistening waterfalls.


Watch for seabirds that nest on rock faces sculpted by glacial forces and listen to their calls. On the cruise back to Ketchikan, enjoy a selection of snacks and beverages while watching for whales, seals, eagles and other of wildlife. You'll also have the opportunity to experience culture and history presented by a Native storyteller and artist, or enjoy a tour-related video presentation.
