Wild Alaska Escape: LeConte Bay, Wrangell & the Misty Fjords

Witness Nature's Frozen Sculpture Garden

Thousands of feet up in Alaska's Coastal Range, LeConte Glacier has an uncanny ability to produce larger than life icebergs in every shade of blue the eye can see. Often called the Iceberg Museum, LeConte Bay's countless bergs captivate and the active sea life provides the only distraction.

 

“Rorschach interpretations of the ice formations offer insight into the minds of the naturalists and guests alike.” --Daniel Baldwin, Naturalist, 8/19/2021

Discover an authentic, wild Alaska unreachable by the big ships

Exploring the southern regions of Southeast Alaska on our expedition is an unrivalled experience. Navigate narrow channels like Behm and Blake, Walker Cove in Misty Fjords, Eastern Passage, and Wrangell Narrows. Lower Zodiacs to explore places like Hole in the Wall State Marine Park on Prince of Wales Island and drop kayaks and paddleboards into salmon-studded waters to trace the rugged, wildlife-rich shorelines of Kupreanof and Kuiu Islands.

  • Leave the ship every day with active options for exploring Alaska's wildness up close

  • Venture by Zodiac into a fjord choked with blue ice from Leconte or Baird Glacier and walk along the shoreline among the ice sculptures stranded on the beach

  • Sail Behm Canal into Misty Fjords National Monument in search of humpbacks, killer whales and sea lions, then hike the moss-draped cedar and Sitka spruce forest of nearby islands

  • Visit a tribal house and a beach famous for native petroglyphs on remote Wrangell Island, or take a jet boat excursion up the Stikine River

  • Whale-watch daily from the bow, keeping eyes peeled for orcas on the hunt

  • Explore Ketchikan’s local port with its vast fleet and thriving commercial fishery
