*Misty Fjords & Wilderness Explorer - 4.5 hour Day Tour* Explore Misty Fjords, one of nature's most spectacular creations, while cruising in luxury aboard one of the fastest sightseeing vessels in Alaska. You'll stop to view an active bald eagle's nest, a Tlingit pictograph, and New Eddystone Rock; an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea. Delight in the unhurried exploration of Rudyerd Bay and learn the natural history of the fjords while gliding quietly near 3,000-foot vertical cliffs and glistening waterfalls.

I'm not quite sure how to rate this. The tour itself was fine: the boat was comfortable, the crew was nice, the food was decent, and the scenery was beautiful. But I hadn't realized that it was going to be almost four hours of riding...More
