Misty Fjords

Sep 08, 2017 - National Geographic Quest


Our last day in Alaska started out with beautiful calm water cruising up Misty Fjord. The narrow passages provided an excellent vantage from the ship of the high granite walls that surround us. When we arrived at a small alcove, we dropped the Zodiacs and spent the morning cruising around looking for wildlife. After lunch, we pulled into a spot called Punchbowl Cove where a brave handful of guests opted for the polar plunge, a long time tradition of jumping into the icy Alaskan waters.
