Endicott Arm / Fords Terror
Snow covered mountains, glowing blues and the white thunder of calving ice take your breath away at the face of Dawes Glacier. As you glide through Endicott Arm, you'll likely spy harbor seals. Tides permitting, explore the narrow passageway of Fords Terror.
As your captain navigates through Southeast's remote fjords, watch for humpback and orca whales. Take a hike, kayak or paddleboard while you stay on the lookout for bears, heron, moose, mink and harbor seals. This magical landscape is defined by hanging waterfalls and lush shades of green.
Thomas Bay / Wrangell Narrows
Step into the backcountry of Alaska's wilderness in an area known for glaciers, rich gold and quartz. Explore glacial landscapes marked by moraines and muskegs. Kayak and skiff in water almost as clear as glass while the mirror image of fjord walls reflect on the water's surface. Hike through the outwash of Baird Glacier, or keep it green by walking through a grassy meadow into the forest. Today's options are endless. Later, pass by the fishing town of Petersburg and wind through the Wrangell Narrows. Abundant bright red and green navigation lights guide the way, inspiring the nickname "Christmas Tree Lane".
Home to native culture and wildlife, Wrangell is one of the oldest towns in Alaska and the only one ever governed by four nations. Learn about the local Tlingit culture, view recently carved totem poles at Kiksetti Totem Park and step inside the historic Chief Shakes Tribal House.
Wildlife abounds in Behm Canal and the surrounding Tongass National Forest. In the water orca, porpoises, seals and otters go about their business as you take part in a guided paddle along the canal. Or, venture out on an intertidal shore walk or low-elevation trek on the Cleveland Peninsula and enjoy wide-stretching views of Southeast Alaska.
Misty Fjords National Monument
Also called "the Yosemite of the North", Misty Fjords National Monument represents nearly every ecosystem found in Southeast Alaska and is a sight that cannot be missed. Glacial valleys filled with sea water and steep, sometimes sheer, walls are a haven for sea birds, bears, mountain goats, Sitka black-tailed deer, mink, moose, river otters and other wildllife. Kayak in Walker Cove or Rudyerd Bay and you'll find it just as easy to paddle and go as it is to sit and take it all in. Or, skiff to the base of a waterfall for a fjord-released shower. Either way, it's an amazing end to your week. This evening, join the captain in a farewell toast and a delicious dinner.
After breakfast this morning, disembark in Ketchikan at about 9:00am. A transfer to the airport or the Un-Cruise hospitality area is provided. (Please arrange a departure no earlier than 11:30am today)
