Small Group Whale Watching: Climb aboard a custom vessel specifically designed for wildlife viewing in Southeast Alaska. Your professional naturalist and experienced captain will help you seek out the variety of area wildlife, be it humpback whale, orca, porpoises, sea lions, seals, sea birds, and more.

Fully Guided Rainforest Walk: Stretch your legs on a secluded trail set within a small corner of the Tongass National Forest. Begin your walk on a forested path that will open your eyes to nature’s processes by illustrating the many connections between the land and the sea. After a short distance, the canopy gives way to the glacier’s moraine with scenic views of the Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget Falls. There will be stops along the way for interpretation and opportunities to take it all in.
