On the way to Misty Fjords National Monument, pass over the vast wilderness of Alaska including Revillagigedo Islands, Tongass National Forest, and Behm Canal. Look for wildlife as you soar over snow-capped mountains, deep fjords, waterfalls, and alpine lakes.

I would think the ages would be appropriate. But check with the company to make certain before you book. We felt very safe and they were wonderful staff and captain was very experienced.
