Similarly to our other Ketchikan Alaska tours, you’ll begin your day on the water with complimentary pick-up at the cruise docks. Upon arrival at the Misty Fjords base, you’ll become acquainted with your knowledgeable naturalist guide and hop onto a custom catamaran designed to give you ideal views of this inspiring area. You’ll enjoy complimentary beverages and food as you head out among ancient glacier-cut fjords and falls that tumble a thousand feet into the sea: it’s no wonder Misty Fjords is often called the “Yosemite of the North”! But don’t forget to scan the emerald waters below for wildlife as you weave between eagles’ nests, mysterious Native American pictographs, and neon moss-colonized bluffs.
You’ll encounter a number of unique natural wonders here, like a remnant volcanic plug, called New Eddystone Rock, that stretches some 240 feet out of the sea, as well as Punchbowl Cove’s famous columnar basalt! You won’t want to forget extra film for this one, as it’s one of the absolute best shore excursions in Alaska for folks who love the natural world. After all, it could be your chance for the photo of a lifetime! There aren’t many shore excursions in Alaska as visually inspiring as this one.
If you dream of experiencing Misty Fjords from high above, you may also want to explore our other Ketchikan Alaska tours, such as the new combo Misty Fjords Cruise & Flightseeing Tour and the classic, hard-to-beat Misty Fjords Flightseeing Tour.
