Cruises from Misty Fjords
Misty Fjords National Monument is a region of 928,000 ha along the Inside Passage coast in extreme southeastern Alaska. It lies about 60 km east of Ketchikan, Alaska. Because of the remoteness of the area, most visitors arrive by cruise ship or fly over the monument in tourist aircraft from Ketchikan or Juneau. More adventurous travellers choose an overnight charter service or spend days exploring by kayak.
Many of the glacial valleys are filled with sea water, and the walls are near-vertical that rise up to 600-900m above sea level, and drop 300m below it.
