Explore one of nature's most spectacular creations during this scenic and exhilarating cruise to Misty Fjords.
Depart the pier aboard one of Alaska's fastest and most luxurious sightseeing vessels for the scenic cruise out of Ketchikan's picturesque harbor. Along the way, you will pass by colorful fishing boats and float planes, and watch for marine and coastal wildlife.
Next, you will pass the rugged coastlines bordering Revillagigedo Channel and proceed into the Behm Canal, which is surrounded by the pristine beauty of Misty Fjords. A stop will be made to view an active bald eagle's nest and a Tlingit pictograph. You will also see New Eddystone Rock, an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea, then take a leisurely visit to Rudyerd Bay, an ice-carved masterpiece deep within the monument.
While gliding quietly beneath its 3,000-foot vertical cliffs, you will learn about the fjord's natural history, feel the mist of glistening waterfalls and listen to the call of seabirds nesting on a rock face sculpted by glacial forces.
On the cruise back to Ketchikan, you will be served a selection of snacks and beverages while watching for whales, seals, eagles and other wildlife species. Your crew will be on hand to serve you and provide interesting commentary throughout the tour. You will also have the opportunity to experience native culture and history presented by a Tlingit storyteller, observe a native artist at work or watch a tour-related video presentation.
