Excursions in RUDYERD BAY (Misty Fjords)

Kayak Rudyerd Bay

Your adventure begins with an on-board equipment and safety orientation by your guides. You'll then depart from the ship by Zodiac, and embark your kayak in a sheltered location.


Rudyerd Bay is also often referred to as "mother nature's playground". You will begin your tour by paddling around the coast of the bay. You will have the opportunity to view the incredible intertidal ecosystem from right beside your kayak, and experience all the tranquility the Misty Fjords National Monument has to offer. The tour will take you along the granite cliff faces, which rise 3000+ feet straight up from water. Enjoy the calming sound of running water, as it flows over the rock faces and plunges down into the sea below.


The sheer scale of the mountainous terrain that encapsulates the fjord is truly mind blowing, and you will feel dwarfed by the steep, towering cliffs which line the bay.


Your expert guide will help to point out wildlife and anything else of interest, and talk to you about the ecology of the region.



Please note: This tour is recommended only for guests in good physical condition and requires up to 90-minutes of paddling. Although no walking is required, guests must be able to climb into the transfer zodiac and to lift their own weight to transfer from the zodiac into the kayak. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair, and for guests who suffer from bodily injuries which prevents the movement of all joints. Tour is conducted in 2-person kayaks, in groups of up to 6 kayaks. Lifejacket, dry suit, Neoprene booties, gloves, spray skirt and dry bags are provided. Maximum available dry suit size is XXL. We suggest you wear warm, comfortable, flexible clothing to wear under the dry suit. Wear long-sleeved thermal layers, a warm hat with a brim, sunglasses, propylene, wool, silk or synthetic clothing (not cotton as it has poor heat retention when it is damp or wet). The minimum age to participate is 16 years. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Total combined weight of a two person kayak cannot exceed 650lbs (300kg). Guests must be able to speak conversational English in order to understand safety instructions. Some prior kayaking experience is required to participate in this activity. Binoculars, cameras and UV protection are recommended. We strongly suggest to book well in advance as space is very limited. This kayak tour is operated and guided by a team of guides/naturalists who will be sailing with you onboard the Silver Muse.

Misty Fjords and Wilderness Explorer

Explore Misty Fjords, one of nature's most spectacular creations, while cruising in luxury aboard one of the fastest sightseeing vessels in Alaska. Stop to view a Tlingit Pictograph, and New Eddystone Rock; an immense volcanic spire rising from the emerald sea.


Delight in the unhurried exploration of Rudyerd Bay and learn the natural history of the fjords while gliding quietly near 3,000-foot vertical cliffs. Enjoy cruising through "God's Pocket" and marveling at "Owl Cliffs" before visiting a rookery and feeling the mist of glistening waterfalls. While onboard enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres, and beverages while watching for whales, seals, eagles and other wildlife.


Please note: This tour requires little walking but does require a shipside transfer to the tour vessel, which will involve stepping over a raised threshold. Guests are recommended to wear warm layers and sturdy footwear. Although frequently encountered on this type of tour, wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.

Rudyerd Bay Zodiac Cruise

All tours are operated by expert drivers/guides on the stable and incredibly reliable MK6 zodiacs. With a maximum of only 12 guests per boat, there is plenty of room for everyone to view wildlife and other features of interest from all angles.


Rudyerd Bay is also often referred to as "mother nature's playground". Upon departing the ship by zodiac, your expert driver/guide will take you for a cruise around the coast of the bay. You will have the opportunity to explore the incredible intertidal ecosystem from the side of you zodiac, and experience all the tranquility the Misty Fjords National Monument has to offer. The tour will take you along the granite cliff faces, which rise 3000+ feet straight up from water. Enjoy the calming sound of running water, as it flows over the rock faces and plunges down into the sea below.


The sheer scale of the mountainous terrain that encapsulates the fjord is truly mind blowing, and you will feel dwarfed by the steep, towering cliffs which line the bay.


Cruise deep into the winding fjord through the sheltered waters of Rudyerd Bay, keeping an eye out for wildlife along the way. Several species of marine mammals have been recorded here including whales, seals and sea otters. You may even spot the majestic bald eagle perched in a tree or flying overhead.


Please note: Although no walking is required, guests must be able to manoeuvre in and out of the zodiac which involves a high step. Ocean ride involves fast acceleration and the ride might be bumpy. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility, back/neck/hip problems, those who are pregnant or suffer from motion sickness or guests who utilise a wheelchair. Participants must be a minimum of 6 years of age. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Lifejackets are provided. Child lifejackets are available. Dress in thermal layers, wear waterproof pants and jacket and sturdy comfortable shoes. You may be splashed. Space is limited. Guests must book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Bring your camera and binocular. It is recommended to have electronic equipment sealed in waterproof bags, in case of rain or spray. This zodiac tour is operated and guided by a team of guides/naturalists who will be sailing with you onboard the Silver Muse.

Rudyerd Bay by Float Plane

Go on an exciting and memorable flight over Rudyerd Bay and the Misty Fjords along the Inside Passage. Expect to be dazzled by the dramatic scenery below and around you, with thousand-foot waterfalls cascading over rain-forest covered granite walls through glacier-formed fjords that created these incredible, steep-sided mountain faces that plunge to water below.


Travel via Zodiac for a 25-minute ride to the dock at Rudyerd Bay. Board your float plane and, after a safety briefing, embark on your 40-minute flight touring the majestic Misty Fjords.


The Misty Fjords were established as a national monument for their stunning natural beauty, including ice-blue lakes, glacier-carved valleys, and amazing waterfalls. Enjoy this rare perspective of the eagle as you hover over this spectacle of nature before returning to sea-level with a 10-minute water landing for another wonderous perspective on the fjords.


Deplane and make the 25-minute transfer back to the ship.



Please note: This tour involves little activity but moderate physical ability to transfer without assistance from boat to a floating dock and step (3 steps) onto the aircraft, traversing stairs and uneven surfaces on the dock, making the excursion not suitable for guests with limited mobility. This tour is not wheelchair accessible for safety reasons; guests with walkers may be able to participate though they will be unable to bring their walkers on the plane with them. The boat ride may be bumpy and is not recommended for those prone to motion sickness, or with a fear of heights or claustrophobia. Depending on weather conditions, guests are recommended to wear warm layers, and closed-toe shoes. Space on this tour is extremely limited; you may need to book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Wildlife sightings are likely but not guaranteed.
