One of the most breathtaking spots on earth. Not kidding. You must go! It's kind of like Yosemite on steroids, but without all the people.

The lake was very clear and it was sunny, it was almost 70" and clear that day it was a great ride. Next time I hope its a little misty,

Well worth the trip-do yourself a favor and hop aboard a sea plane for this. The wildlife, beautiful snow, water, rising fog-I could go on and on. Loved it!

The view from the air was beautiful. Numerous eagles, saw a bear below, landed at a shore to just enjoy the unspoiled view. Highly recommend this area.

Incredible scenery, lots of wildlife and a great tour guide. A wonderful way to see the fiords of Alaska. And with the boat doing 35 knots, you can get to the really good parts very quickly. And you must try their salmon. It is the best smoked salmon I had anywhere in Alaska.

Amazing, but we were lucky. We sat on our Balcony and watched Rams on the fjords and icebergs float by. Really awesome!

This area was carved out of the Tongass National Forest to promote recreational access over other forest management practices but you will not see any differences in vegetation from the parent forest. Lush, verdant, rain forest growth extends down to the water's edge along sheer cliffs, absent only in infrequent vertical stripes where severe winds have blown the trees down.... More

I traveled on a 55 foot boat and have never had such an exhilarating experience. The weather was great, Captain Steve was very kind and experiened, folks were friendly. Good food served. We saw pods of orcas, beautiful circling and bubbling of humpbacks, bears, many fish and eagles...most impressive the the massive glacial explosion that just about capsized our boat;... More
