Explore the breathtaking Misty Fjords National Monument, one of nature’s most spectacular creations, while cruising aboard our custom designed high speed 30’ ACB (Aluminum Chambered Boat).
Intimate wilderness voyage to one of Alaska’s most scenic treasures
Feel the magnitude of nature while learning the fascinating history of Rudyerd Bay, the fjords, and Punchbowl Cove.
What makes the Misty Fjords Expedition unique is that we offer the only customized boat charter to the fjords. You are the captain of your ship! If you decide you would like to stop and enjoy certain areas of the Misty Fjords longer, perhaps New Eddystone Rock, an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea, or the abundant coastal and marine wildlife including bald eagles, black and brown bears, humpback and orca whales and more, we will do so.
