Don your waterproof gear (provided), and set off on a thrilling adventure aboard a high-speed marine expedition vessel. The boat offers an exhilarating way to explore the network of dozens of scenic islands that provide a barrier from the swell of the open Pacific Ocean. Your captain navigates the agile vessel for up-close views of reefs and rock pinnacles. In shallow-water areas inaccessible to larger craft, you'll have a chance to see natural wonders, such as kelp forests, sea stars and anemones. This area is teeming with wildlife. Your captain is trained to approach animals in a way that will not disturb their natural behavior, providing excellent photography and viewing opportunities. Arrive at Fin Island Lodge, where you'll be treated to a delicious Alaska feast served up amidst the spectacular views of this exclusive island. Satiated, take a little walk through the natural terrain or along the shoreline, then warm up next to the cozy beach fire. Enjoy the short cruise back to port.
