Not so much a canal, as a fjord—in fact, North America's deepest at over 2,000 feet. This once major route of Klondike gold rushers is now a busy inlet for humpbacks, orcas, Dall's porpoise, Steller sea lions, salmon, halibut, and mischievous river otters. And that's at water level. Look up, and you see bald eagles. Looking like golf balls in the tree tops when they're not soaring overhead. But it's not all looking and seeing today, your captain is on task to pick the prime spot for adventure. Feel the burn on a long paddling excursion. Search tide pools for microscopic life. Or, hike a shadow-filled forest.,
