    The two that come to mind to me is first Blackstone bay. On the right just before the glacier. Hard to beat that one.

    Second is the gorgeous falls up in Hidden bay. Depending on water flow you can get people out into the middle of that one that makes for lifetime photos.

    Cascade Bay is my favorite.

    Spending my kids' inheritance with them, one adventure at a time.

    Second for Cascade Bay. View from top of falls is pretty spectacular also.

    Cascade is the biggest waterfall in the sound and a must see for sure. If you want spectacular (almost any place in the Sound fits!), my favorite spot is Nassau Fjord. Glaciers, shear mountain cliffs, ice bergs with seals resting on top, and I think a waterfall or two, it's got it all. Truly God's country.

    Small waterfall but on a nice warm day there is nothing that beats the white sand beach, now if I could just remember where it is... its in the Cruising guide to PWS.

    Kind of a stretch calling where the Contact Glacier melts flowing into Deepwater Bay a "waterfall", but it is IMHO one of the must visit locations in the sound.



    Even on a drizzly day it isn't too bad, but on a sunny day it is spectacular.

    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Love Deepwater Bay. The climb up and over the hill is even nicer.

    I don't have my Lethcoe book handy, but isn't there a waterfall somewhere in Hidden Passage? One of these days I need to run through there.

    In Greystone Bay, which is around the corner from Deep Water (towards Kings Bay, whichever direction that is), there is a great waterfall that you can nose your bow under and give everyone a heavy duty shower. The kids love it, the adults think it is too cold. Very fun though.

    There's one just inside Copper Bay on the left going in that's like that. You can pull up next to the cliff face and get a shower.

    JR - I used to take my 38 footer in there. As long as the tide isn't running and you have a lookout for the rocks on the bow, it's doable and a beautiful place once inside. Now finding a place to anchor and getting the hook to set is another matter. There's only one spot and it drops off fast so if the weather is squirrely, I'd look for a better anchorage.

    The one up by Barry ain't all that terrible. Little red plane gives a little size perspective.

    Vertical shot. Had longer lens on my camera so didn't get the whole thing in one frame.
