    Default Waterfalls in PWS

    Looking for some new waterfalls in PWS. Would like to hear about and maybe see some pics of your favorites. My wife loves waterfalls and I would like to plan some trips this year around checking out the cool waterfalls in PWS.

    I assume you have a copy of Lethcoes cruising guide. A couple nice ones listed in there that you have probably checked out already. If not, worth the investment.
    Seems anytime you get to the back of a bay with a glacier in it there's a waterfall or 500 of them cascading down the mountain.

    If all you wanted to do was look at & find Waterfalls it would not take long to figure out it going to take a life time to see most.

    I have the crusing guide but haven't looked at it in a few years. Might have to bust it back out.

    Cascade is my personal favorite (so far). It is a high volume waterfall with an excellent mud bottom for anchoring. I have never had my boat stop that fast as there when backing down on the anchor. The location is N60 54.915 W147 48.494 and there is plenty of room for multiple boats.

    I agree. Not a good place for some types of boats/engines because of all of the jellyfish. Can get sucked into the intake and clog up things.
