Drop the kayaks in Saginaw Bay or some other hidden cove along the Keku Islands. Black bears are common sights along the shore. But so are eagles in the treetops and orange-billed surf scoters paddling nearby. For hikers, your guides have a route in mind. Make for the forest, far off the map. Cruising Frederick Sound, chances are high you'll see humpbacks. The up-welling of nutrients in the water make it an irresistible feeding ground. "Kake" comes from a Tlingit word meaning "opening of daylight". Wind down your day in this native village with traditional storytelling and dancing and count the many totems on their 132-foot pole.,
