Misty Fjords Cruise and Fly Combo

Welcome

Set sail on a high-speed catamaran from the downtown waterfront of Alaska’s first city, Ketchikan to Misty Fjords National Monument. After entering this majestic wilderness area at the entrance to Rudyerd Bay you will be surrounded by towering cliffs, sheer rock faces and waterfalls cascading into emerald lakes and fjords. Your vessel pauses at a mysterious Native pictograph, before visiting Punchbowl Cove with its columnar basalt formations and the colorful Mossy Wall bird rookery. The towering volcanic spire known as New Eddystone Rock calls to mind the dramatic geological forces that shaped this area six million years ago. A knowledgeable naturalist will provide in-depth commentary on the natural history of the area. Sightings can never be guaranteed, however be on the lookout for bears, mountain goats, seals, sea lions, and humpback and killer whales. You may also get to view an active eagle’s nest. Sit back and relax on the return journey to Ketchikan.

What to Bring: Since weather can be unpredictable in Southeast Alaska, we recommend dressing in layers, wearing comfortable shoes and bringing a waterproof jacket. Don't forget your camera, binoculars and sunglasses.
