The ultimate experience to see one of the most majestic creations on earth is by both boat and plane. You can have it all, a cruise and flightseeing trip. Your excursion through Misty Fjords National Monument provides the opportunity to enjoy both perspectives of this magnificent creation through a unique Alaskan journey. During your voyage, keep a sharp eye out for bears and whales. Encounter the Monument up close during your cruise to the far reaches of Rudyerd Bay, the heart of the Monument where your vessel will slip into a floating dock and you’ll transfer to an authentic Alaska floatplane.
From the air, you'll be able to truly appreciate the magnitude and majesty of Rudyerd Bay, the crown jewel of this two million acre monument. Soar over pristine wilderness and enjoy dramatic waterfalls and unspoiled forests, lakes and muskeg bogs. Upon your return you’ll see a wide, panoramic view of the city of Ketchikan before making an exhilarating water landing. Guests are provided with a headset to hear the recorded narration and music.
