Description

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

This leisurely tour of the awe-inspiring Misty Fjords begins when you depart Ketchikan's picturesque harbor, passing colorful floatplanes and fishing boats en route to a wilderness experience you'll never forget. "Flying" at sea level along the rugged coastlines, your vessel will stop to enable you to view an active bald eagle's nest and a Tlingit pictograph. Admire New Eddystone Rock, an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea and learn the natural history of the fjords while gliding quietly beneath 3,000-foot vertical cliffs. Feel the mist from glistening waterfalls and hear the call of seabirds nesting on rock faces sculpted by glacial forces. Then enjoy a selection of snacks and beverages while watching for whales, seals, eagles and other wildlife before returning to Ketchikan. On this latter part of the tour experience Native culture and history from a storyteller, artist at work or video presentation.

Special Notes:

Wildlife sightings are frequent, but not guaranteed. If wildlife is spotted and extra viewing time is provided, the Tlingit pictograph may be omitted. Dress warmly in layers to enjoy viewing and photography from the open-air observation deck.

Unaccompanied Minor Policy: Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
