Going to the Glacier

With the fog beginning to lift, we weigh anchor at 10 am and ease out of Geike Inlet.  We keep a sharp lookout for the Orcas that were in the anchorage earlier today but they seem to have disappeared.  The weather improves as we work our way “up bay”. Reaching Reid Glacier we find a small 12 […]

Glacier Bay Part One

We have an exciting week ahead of us.  Our nephew, Storm, is joining us for a week of exploration in Glacier Bay.   This will be our third trip into the National Park.  Only 25 private vessels  and two cruise ships are allowed in the bay each day. You can apply for permits 60 days in advance.  We applied at […]

The King Quest Continues

We are heading north today on Chatham Strait to Hood Bay.  Last year we caught our one and only King Salmon here.  We have struggled over the past few years with salmon fishing.  Jeff says we are like a one year old bear in a salmon stream just flopping around without catching anything.  To fish for salmon, you need to use […]

Yes Bears Do Swim

We had just finished processing our big halibut that we had caught this morning as we  hear a strange splashing noise. We soon see a wet brown bear hauling himself up the rocky incline of the small islet a  hundred yards from the boat.  He must have swam from shore.   His nose is up in the air.  Jeff thinks […]

Petersburg to Takatz

All is quiet in Petersburg Harbor as we ease out of our stall at 5:30 am.  We are eager to get an early start today as the forecast calls for gale force winds this evening and tomorrow.  Hopefully we will  be safely tucked into our anchorage before the front arrives.  At  4 am we have sufficient light but the strong […]

Fishing in Frederick Sound

At 7 am we cast off our lines from our stall in Petersburg. We are waiting on a part to arrive for our water maker,  so we are heading out to some of our lucky fishing spots while waiting on the part. It is another beautiful day in Alaska to be out on the water. So […]

Still Searching for Kings

After leaving Labouchere, we make a quick pit stop in Wrangell to take care of some business, get internet, and wait out a pesky low pressure weather system lurking in the Gulf of Alaska.  We hike Mt. Dewy to get a great view of the Marina and Zimovia Strait.   While in Wrangell  we learn that there is […]

Wrangell Narrows

Petersburg is located at the north end of the Wrangell Narrows. This 21 mile narrow passage connects Sumner Strait on the south end to Frederick Sound on the north end. It is a busy waterway with almost all South East Alaska traffic passing thru these narrows. We have spent most of our cruising time exploring […]

First Trip of the Season

After eight days of work getting the boat ready for another season of cruising, we are finally pushing away from the dock for the first cruise of the season. It feels good to be back out on the water. As we head out Fredrick Sound, we soon spot the familiar site of the sea lions […]

Glad to be back aboard

A beautifully day with cloudless blue skies made for a spectacular view of the PNW mountains as we flew up the coast from Seattle to Juneau. It was fun to look down and see many of the anchorages that we have cruised to from thousands of feet above. We were very relieved to find Idyll […]
