One of the things we most wanted to do while in the Ketchikan area was to take a fly/cruise tour into Misty Fjords National Monument. Finally on our last full day the weather improved to the point it seemed worthwhile and we were able to secure four last minute seats with of of the tour operaqtors.

Some images from the flight.
After landing in one of the fjords we transferred to a catamaran tour boat for the trip back to Ketchikan.
Here are images from the cruise portion of the tour.
As we got close to Ketchikan we saw the ferry Matanuska.
We also had a Humpback Whale breach a couple of times, but I wasn't able to catch it before the big splash.
