Totem Bight Operations Center

This scenery area highlight is the lodge where you can stay at and enjoy the beautiful Tongass Narrows area and nearby Ketchikan. A fishing and floatplane dock as well as a charter office are on these grounds. Be sure to take "Bob" for a closer look inside the floating repair hangar where work is done on aircraft. Located near PAKT, it's a convenient starting point to begin discovering the Misty Fjords area. There is also an enhancement to the nearby paper mill just east of this area. Be sure to fly over and have a look.

Another perfect location to take "Bob" out for a walk around the lodge and down towards the repair area. "Bob" is a free first person aircraft addon from ORBX that will need to be installed first if you plan on taking a walk around this scenery. See the descriptions of "Bob" and directions found on the FAQ page at Return to Misty Moorings or on the ORBX website.

Be sure to go INSIDE the hanger.
