Sitting in a 12-mile fjord at the head of LeConte Bay, the spectacular LeConte Glacier is not only North America's southernmost tidewater glacier, but it's also part of a massive system of glaciers that stretches for 120 miles between the Stikine and Whiting Rivers.

Afterwards, you'll make a 1-2 hour stop in Petersburg, also known as Alaska's "Little Norway." There you can grab a bite to eat or visit the Petersburg Museum. This charming community also offers plenty of souvenir opportunities. Depending on tide conditions, the Petersburg stop may occur at the beginning of the tour.

    Expedition Black Bear

    In Alaska, looking for a grrreat time? Hop aboard a 25-foot safe boat for a coastal saltwater safari, and uproarious fun will ensue! Black bears. We're talking about black bears. The romp begins on the Ketchikan waterfront. Head north 26 miles upon launch, over the course of one hour of scenic meanderings. Your destination: Margaret Bay and Traitors Cove.

Your captain will navigate the vessel through the Tongass Narrows and Clover Passage, which is surrounded by old-growth forest and pristine mountain views. Discover bays, inlets, and sanctuaries. In addition to bears, spot bald eagles, breaching whales...and, dare we say, Big Foot? Maybe not. But there is a cool lighthouse.
