    Will we make it back to the ship in time? What if we don't?

    Answer: We've never left anyone behind and only schedule tours that work well with your cruise ship's itinerary. We leave plenty of cushion so you can confidently book your trips independently.

    What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port? Refund?

    Answer: It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases, we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will of course refund the full cost of the tour.

    Do the flights ever get canceled due to weather?

    Answer: Yes, safety is a number one priority so weather conditions are taken into account each day. In certain cases, the weather can lift and a slight delay will still allow the flight to continue. However, if a flight is canceled completely due to weather circumstances, you will always receive a full refund.

    What should we wear and bring?

    Answer: For comfort, we typically recommend long pants and closed-toed shoes. A light jacket and rain coat are also advisable, as weather is often misty and light rain is probable.

    What kind of wildlife will we see?

    Answer: It's never certain exactly what wildlife you'll see, but killer whales, humpback whales, eagles, black bears, mountain goats, and many other species are often spotted here.

    Can you see wildlife from the plane?

    Answer: If you have sharp eyes, it's certainly possible to see wildlife on the mountains below. The plane flies low enough to distinguish individual animals, but of course the pilots have to respect local wildlife so it's not an objective of this tour.

    Can we watch from inside the boats if it is cold or rainy?

    Answer: Yes. The boats feature a spacious heated cabin with wide windows designed for viewing scenery.

    How big are the boats?

    Answer: This tour typically utilizes a 48-passenger catamaran-style boat with both a large exterior viewing deck and interior cabin.

    How big are the planes?

    Answer: There are a few types of planes used for the tour, and you'll typically be in a group of 6-10 guests on the flight. Everyone gets a window seat on these flights.

    Why is the Misty Fjords Cruise and Flightseeing tour shorter than the Misty Fjords Cruise?

    Answer: About halfway through the Misty Fjords Cruise, guests that have signed up for the Cruise & Flightseeing combo will depart at a floating dock and tour the area via floatplane before heading back to HQ. Since the plane can make the return trip more rapidly, it arrives back where the tour began about an hour before the boat.
