Default snorkeling in Alaska

Has anyone done the Princess Alaska Snorkeling tour in Ketchica, or know anything about it? It sounds neat but, we wonder if there is actaully anything to see (fish, coral, etc), and how cold it really is. They say wetsuits are provided in the tour book but, seems to me the water is still going to be freezing. Any info?

Yes the water will be cold, not much warmer than 40, and so will you if you go snorkling in a wet suit. The only way to stay warm and enjoy activities in cold water is in a drysuit, and they are fairly expensive. If the marine life is anything like that in Washington state, there is no coral, but plent of other life, fish, invertibrates and even mammals. As much as I like diving, even in cold water, I think I'd skip the Alaska Snorkling.

Or are you joking about the Alaska snorkling excursion?
