Both of these dramatic glacial fjords offer stunning views of tidewater glaciers. Zodiac and kayak excursions afford up-close discoveries and unmatched perspective.

6 Day 6 Frederick Sound & Baranof Warm Springs

Scout for humpback whales and other marine mammals in Frederick Sound. Humpbacks are famous for behavior that lends itself to incredible viewing and photography, such as tail lobbing, lunge feeding, pectoral slapping, breaching, and picturesque dives that showcase their massive flukes.

Experience a port call in the small town of Klawock. With a population of under 1,000 people, this charming community began as a summer fishing camp of the Tlingit people.

The town is known for its remarkable collection of 21 totem poles, which you’ll have an opportunity to view and photograph on a guided tour.
