Cruise through Misty Fjords, a waterway that ancient glaciers carved out of the rugged landscape, leaving behind a natural wonderland of sheer vertical cliffs, roaring waterfalls and endless beauty. To reach the fjords, you will pass through Revillagigedo Channel and proceed into the Behm Canal, a waterway where orcas, seals and porpoises are often spotted. The occasional stop will be made along the way to view an active bald eagle’s nest, a pictograph that the Tlingits etched into a stone cliff and New Eddystone Rock, an immense volcanic spire that rises above the sea. While cruising through Misty Fjords, the onboard naturalist will describe the fjord’s natural history and point out seabirds that may be nesting in the cliffs. You will also have the opportunity to delve into the Tlingit culture by listening to a storyteller and by watching one of the tribe’s artists at work. After your cruise, you will be dropped off in downtown Ketchikan where you can explore and shop before hopping on a free shuttle back to the ship.
