Three Port Best of Alaska Adventure Package
Whale Watching in Juneau
Your Alaska Whale Watching Cruise adventure begins with a short drive to a scenic harbor. Here, you will board a mammal-friendly jet boat equipped with water jet drives to ensure a quiet underwater operation without dangerous propellers that may frighten or harm the animals. The boats have an enclosed and heated cabin, complete with indoor plumbing. In addition, the boat only holds a maximum of 40 guests. There are large viewing windows and an outdoor viewing deck that provide an up-close and personal experience while you observe and photograph the animals in their natural surroundings.
You will be on the boat for approximately two hours on this Juneau cruise excursion, in an area that the whales frequent every summer. After the whale watching tour, your transportation will take you back to downtown Juneau.
Incredible Ketchikan Excursion Discovering Misty Fjords National Monument by Floatplane
The Misty Fjords National Monument in Alaska has been carved to impressive perfection by millions of years of glacial activity. On this popular flightseeing Ketchikan excursion, it will take you only the blink of an eye to appreciate nature's handiwork.
The Misty Fjords National Monument is a 2.3 million-acre piece of pristine wilderness that must be viewed by floatplane to truly take in its majesty: soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords and miles of glacier-carved gorges.
While you take in the enormity of the Misty Fjords National Monument from above, you will listen to information on the area, as well as appropriate music over your noise-reducing headphones. While taking you on the most scenic flight possible based on that day's weather conditions, your pilot will keep an eye open for wildlife below. While wildlife spotting is never guaranteed on the Ketchikan tour, keep scanning the scenery below, where you may see creatures big and small, from burly brown bears to agile mountain goats; from harbor seals to humpback whales. Depending on the visibility that day, your pilot usually tries to stay approximately 1000 feet above the scenery, offering you the best up-close view from a safe distance. The maximum altitude reached is approximately 4,000 feet above sea level. A water landing on a mountain lake for photos and reflection is included.
The Spectacular Misty Fjords Flightseeing Ketchikan Tour is a must-see experience that will provide a lifetime of memories.
For safety reasons, talking to the pilot during the flight is not possible. Questions can be asked while at the lake landing and after the flight.
Total flying time, including the water landing time, is approximately 1.5 hours.
Please Note: Large bags and backpacks are not permitted on the aircraft but can be safely stored in the office. Small purses can be brought on board the plane.
