THE MISTY FJORD
The M/V Misty Fjord expedition vessel was custom designed for in-depth wilderness exploration of Southeast Alaska. Her hull is based on the design of well-proven Alaska commercial fishing boats for supreme comfort and stability while sailing the waters of the Inside Passage. The onboard experience features a plush interior with elegant teak finish, aft salon, spacious wheelhouse, and outer deck engineered for optimal wildlife viewing.
Itineraries on the Misty Fjord offer an opportunity to discover three distinct Native cultures, the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian, through visits to intriguing villages. These communities are among the least-traveled places in Alaska, and a visit can be a powerful experience.
To witness the spiritual way in which the indigenous people of Alaska are connected to the earth and to each other is inspiring. Many of the remarkable residents continue to subsist off the land and sea. As local Alaska Natives ourselves, we are grateful to be welcomed with open arms by our friends in several villages.
As you walk the streets and forests of these communities, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy several planned experiences, from dance shows to carving demonstrations. You may even witness several events unique to village life: a hunter’s return after a successful hunt of seal or deer, families working together to hang their harvest of sockeye salmon in a smoke house, or a ceremonial potlatch.
