Cruise and Campfire

After a short transfer, you’ll board the catamaran to begin your cruise along the tranquil waters of Silver Bay surrounded by soul-stirring vistas of soaring mountains and cascading waterfalls. As your guide shares compelling tales of the area’s history and ecology, look out for bald eagles above and brown bears onshore.
