ShoreTrips says...

The Misty Fjords National Monument has been carved to impressive perfection by millions of years of glacial activity. It will take you only the blink of an eye to appreciate nature's handiwork.

The Misty Fjords National Monument offers everything that "means" Alaska. The only way to take in the true majesty of this pristine wilderness is by floatplane. Each plane is equipped with non-interactive headsets that allows passengers to easily hear the pilot's narration as you enjoy the majesty of the scenery out your own window. For safety reasons, we will not have communication with the pilot while flying, but do save your questions for our landing locations. The floatplane will fly over some of the planet's most fascinating landmarks in all of Southeast Alaska.

The soaring cliffs, sawtooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords, and miles of glacier-carved gorges cannot be appreciated any other way.

And while you take in the enormity of the Misty Fjords National Monument from above, remember to keep an eye out for wildlife below, including burly brown bears, agile mountain goats, harbor seals, and humpback whales.

The highlight of this tour will be landing on a pristine fjord to view the breathtaking scenery from water level. You will have the opportunity to get out and stand on the floats of the plane, with a waterfall just over your shoulder. It will be an experience that you won't soon forget!
