In addition to its geological wonders, the basin plays home to rich ecosystems and a wealth of marine and coastal creatures, including seabirds, grizzly bears, whales, and seals. You can visit the area either by ground or sea. Coming via a cruise ship, you'll find yourself surrounded with mountains, forests, and gigantic ice formations. Hop on a kayaking or rafting excursion for a closer look at the landscape that served as the sacred homeland of the Tlingit people and dazzled European explorers.
