Prince of Whales Island

Days 71-90 Before continuing south along the inside passage , we make a stop in Petersburg to repair our anchor windlass. Jeff enjoyed working with Aaron the mechanic at Piston and Rudder to replace the seals on our anchor windlass and also did some prevent maintenance cleaning our main engine heat exchanger. An oil change […]

Baranof Hot Springs

Days 67-70: We are not superstitious but…. As we are pulling away from the fuel docks at Hoonah on Friday the 13 Th., I do a double take as I am on the bow handling our lines. There is oil oozing out from under our anchor windlass. Yikes!! We recognize this problem immediately. We had […]

Glacier Bay to Hoonah

Day 62: Blue Mouse to Fingers Bay: The weather is changing. The warm weather and clear sky has disappeared and it is now cool, grey and windy. With only limited weather forecast available from our satellite receiver, we decide to start working our way down Glacier Bay towards Park headquarters. We feel a storm is […]

Into the Ice

Day 61: Reid Glacier to Blue Mouse: Today will be a first for Idyll Time. After traveling 65 miles up bay, we are heading to the glaciers and are a little nervous about navigating through ice. We have never done this before. Striking an ice berg would be just like hitting a rock and could […]

Reid Glacier

Day 60: North Sandy to Reid Glacier: It is another amazing day in Glacier Bay. We continue working our way up bay while enjoying the warm sunny weather which is very unusual for this area. We peak our nose in Tidal Inlet and spot a brown bear on shore. Reaching the high granite peaks of […]

Glacier Bay Part One

Day 50: Hoonah to North Sandy Cove: The Hoonah Harbor is still asleep as we slip away from the docks this early morning. Our dear friends, Jack and Barbara, are with us for this special trip into Glacier Bay. Cruising into Glacier Bay on our own boat has been on our bucket list for some […]

Hoonah

It is a short fourteen mile run up Port Fredrick Sound to the small village of Hoonah. Robin and Jim from the Defever “Adventures” are on the docks to catch our lines. They have been very gracious with providing us Alaska cruising information over the past several years and are partly responsible for us being […]

Pavlov to Neka Bay

Day 43 &44: Pavlov to Neka Bay: As we exit Freshwater Bay on this grey morning, the tall peaks on Admiralty Island welcome us into Chatham Sound. Just another 15 Miles brings us to Icy Strait where we are happy to find conditions calm with hardly a ripple on the water. We soon spot a […]

Sitka to Pavlov

Day 40 & 41: Sitka to Baby Bear Anchorage: Saying goodby to Sitka, we retrace our route through Olga and Neva Strait into Salisbury Sound. There are quite a few commercial fishing boats in the sound today which we must navigate around. These guys are called Trollers. They have numerous led weights hanging down from […]

Tenakee Springs to Sitka

Day 34: Tenakee Springs to Appleton Cove: Our departure is delayed today as we can’t pick up our half dozen cinnamon rolls from the Part Time bakery until 8:30 AM. Hot and fresh out of the oven, they are the best cinnamon rolls we have had in a long time. They were well worth waiting […]
