Endicott Arm in dappled light! Not much can compare. This long, straight fjord cutting deep into the coast range of Southeast Alaska is, as John Muir described it, “a wild, unfinished Yosemite.”

We took to Zodiacs to inch as close as possible to the Dawes Glacier. This tidewater glacier helped create the landscape that surrounded us today.

The landscape that surrounded us in Ford’s Terror this afternoon was equally stunning. Kayaks, standup paddleboards, and Zodiacs took to the water. Geology dominated the horizon, some of the finest one could ever hope to observe.
