Embark on a serene two-hour marine expedition through calm waters aboard an open-air inflatable vessel. Designed for agility, this nimble boat enables the navigation of shallow waters and can explore areas beyond the reach of larger vessels. Set off in search of delightful sea otters, charming creatures renowned for their playful demeanor, back floats, and skillfully cracking open shellfish with rocks. As you cruise, be on the lookout for the majestic humpback whales, bears, eagles and sea lions that grace the vast expanse. Delve into hidden areas and witness wildlife in their undisturbed natural habitats, preserving the delicate ecosystems that surround. Throughout this immersive experience, naturalist guides will share the history of the area and the wonders of wildlife behavior, ecology and conservation efforts. Gain insights into the interconnectedness of marine and terrestrial ecosystems within this pristine Alaska environment and capture wonderful photos. Return to port.
