Snorkeling at Mountain Point

5643 South Tongass Highway

Don snorkeling gear and dive into the chilly waters of the Inside Passage—you’ll stay quite warm in your heavy-duty wet suit—to see the wildlife beneath the waves firsthand. At Mountain Point, you can swim in the shallow intertidal zone, where exotic creatures like giant sunflower stars, rockfish and crabs roam the seafloor. The snorkeling happens from the beach, so there’s no boat ride required, and guides provide you with everything you need, including hot showers and hot cocoa afterward.
