Silversea Luxury Cruises A METLAKATLA (Alaska)

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Metlakatla, Alaska

Since the late 19th century, Metlakatla has been the major settlement of the Metlakatla Indian Community of the federally recognized Annette Islands Reserve, the only remaining reservation in Alaska. It is located on Annette Island, and in 2010 had 1,405 residents. Membership in the community is primarily by lineage and is comprised primarily of Tsimshian people. Metlakatla comes from a Tsimshian word meaning "Salt Water Passage". View more

In 1886, William Duncan, an English tannery employee and lay member of the Church Missionary Society, along with a devoted group of Tsimshian followers, decided to leave his home village in British Colombia. Duncan went to Washington, D.C., asked the U.S. government to give his group land in Alaska. The U.S. gave them Annette Island after a Tsimshian search committee in seagoing canoes discovered its calm bay, accessible beaches and abundant fish. The group arrived in 1887 and built a settlement laid out in a grid pattern like a European town. They named the town New Metlakatla, after the town they had left behind, but later dropped the "New."

Misty Fjords by Float Plane

Explore the second-largest wilderness region in the United States in an exhilarating new way during this exciting floatplane excursion in the Misty Fjords National Monument. Spanning over two million acres (over 800,000 hectare), the Misty Fjords National Monument is a remote area crafted by nature's forces over tens of thousands of years. It is truly one of the highlights of your visit to Ketchikan.


Depart the pier for the short drive to the seaplane base. After a safety briefing, walk down towards your awaiting aircraft.


Floatplane Flight

Board an authentic De Havilland floatplane and soar along the Ketchikan waterfront and over the Tongass Narrows. Then, ascend for a flyover of the enchanting Misty Fjords National Monument. En route, pass by sheer granite cliffs, plunging 1000-foot (300-metre) waterfalls, and crystalline glacial lakes. Eagles, mountain goats, whales, and sea lions are some of the wildlife you may be able to observe from your guaranteed window seat during this floatplane adventure.


Misty Fjords National Monument

Your specially-equipped floatplane offers all the amenities to make your trip a memorable experience, including digital sound systems and individual passenger noise-cancelling headsets to hear the narrative and choreographed music. Your flight route is dependent on the weather and will take you on a once in a lifetime adventure to either the South where you may see New Eddystone Rock and Big Goat Lake or North past Neets Bay and Bell Island Hot Springs.


Midway through the flight, your pilot will land in a pristine lake or ocean inlet so you can savour the incredible scenery, serenity and tranquillity of your surroundings. Remember to bring your camera to capture the dramatic sights of the Misty Fjords National Monument.


Afterwards, the floatplane returns you to its facility, where the transfer vehicle stands-by to take you to the pier.

The Traitors' Cove Bear Viewing experience begins with a brief transfer to the float planes for the 20-minute flight over the luxuriant Tongass National Forest which will set the backdrop for your bear-watching experience!


Interactive headsets facilitate direct communication with the pilot, and each other during the flight and your pilot will comment on the area's attractions.


A one-mile van transfer will take you from the floatplane landing site to the park's trailhead. A half -mile walk along the trail leads you to the observation area, where alert black bears keep an eager lookout for migrating salmon. Your guide will accompany you


to the Margaret Creek Bear Viewing platform and will point out the local flora and fauna as you walk.


The observatory is maintained by the US Forest Service, which keeps a strict limit on the number of visitors. The Tongass National Forest has the highest density of black bears in the world and one of the highest densities of brown bears, so visitors have a good chance of sighting the black bears at Traitors' Cove, one of the park's five designated Bear Viewing Areas.


Enjoy a safe place to view and photograph these iconic creatures i n their natural habitat! Facilities make viewing the bears easier and safer, with minimum disturbance to the animals. In addition to black bears, you may see salmon, bald eagles, sea lions, and other wildlife. At the end of your time at the site, walk back alo ng the trail to the float plane and make the return flight to town and


transfer back to the ship.

Whilst scanning the water for signs of wildlife, enjoy complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
