Excursion Description

Explore Misty Fjords while cruising in luxury aboard one of the fastest sightseeing vessels in Alaska.

On this excursion you will:

  • Begin your adventure as soon as you leave Ketchikan's picturesque harbor, passing by colorful fishing boats and float planes, en route to a wilderness experience you will never forget.
  • Keep a sharp eye out for whales, porpoise and sea lions as the water jet-powered catamaran "flies" at sea level past rugged coastlines.
  • Cruise into into Behm Canal surrounded by the pristine beauty of Misty Fjords, stop to view an active bald eagle's nest and a Tlingit pictograph.
  • Admire New Eddystone Rock, an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea.
  • Delight in the unhurried exploration of Rudyerd Bay, an ice-carved masterpiece deep within the monument.
  • Learn the natural history of the fjords while gliding quietly beneath 3,000-foot vertical cliffs.
  • Feel the mist of glistening waterfalls and listen to the call of seabirds nesting on a rock face sculpted by glacial forces.
  • Cruise south from Rudyerd Bay to view a gathering of harbor seals.
  • Enjoy a selection of complimentary snacks and beverages while watching for other species of wildlife that thrive here.
  • While en route to Ketchikan, have the opportunity to experience native culture and history presented by a Tlingit storyteller, watch a native artist at work, or enjoy a tour-related video presentation.

Note: Be sure to bring a warm, waterproof jacket to wear on the topside observation decks and remember to bring your camera!

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
