Time to enjoy the last day on the ship while cruising the scenic Inside Passage – and watching whales, well at least one whale.
A short visit to Ketchikan Alaska and the northern lights at sea at night.
Chasing rainbows in Skagway, Alaska. Well didn’t need to chase too hard, they just appeared. And a bear as well.
A spectacular day cruising the breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord. It couldn’t get much better with large chunks of ice floating, turquoise water and wispy clouds clinging to the side of the fjord. Oh and we also visited Juneau, the capital of Alaska.
Enjoying nature in Icy Strait Point
Almost another visit to Hubbard Glacier, Alaska. It turned into a visit to a fog bank.
A soggy and foggy day in Seward, Alaska. The end of the first cruise, but the beginning of the second.
Amazing views of Hubbard Glacier, in Alaska
A spectacular day cruising in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. Beautiful mountains and glaciers.
Two trips up the Klondike Highway to Canada on a scenic summit drive from Skagway, Alaska. Waterfalls, mountains and glaciers surround the city.
A beautiful day in Juneau, Alaska. A little hiking on top of Mount Roberts and a scenic tram (gondola) ride.
Ketchikan, Alaska, Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My… well there were Bears and Salmon, no Lions or Tigers in Alaska (unless Mike Tyson moved here from Vegas)
Today was supposed to be scenic cruising of the inside passage, but the ship passed most of the scenic part at night. It was still a nice sea day and a chance to relax.
Videos recorded during one of my best trips ever while cruising on the UnCruise Adventures Wilderness Explorer (or while exploring pre/post cruise)
A long and busy day. The highlight of the day was visiting Mendenhall Glacier and hiking to nugget falls. Another awesome meal at Deckhand Dave’s and finally a scenic walk around Juneau before packing.
Disembarkation from the cruise. The trip isn’t ending, just yet. Today I went up the Mt Roberts tramway and took a helicopter flight and landed on a glacier. I also got to watch the ships leave the port in the evening.
In the morning we visited Fords Terror, saw a couple of brown bears (momma and baby), I took the polar plunge and then we cruised to Dawes Glacier at the end of Endicott Arm. We saw a bunch of seals hitching a ride on the chunks of ice and the ice itself came in interesting shapes. At the end of the day we enjoyed being anchored at a beautiful location called Wood Spit.
Today the weather tricked us into believing we might have a gloomy day at Sandborn, but the weather quickly improved. A zodiac tour in the morning and kayaking in the afternoon with a lot of wildlife sightings and a most scenic sunset.
A wonderful morning in LeConte Bay among huge floating chunks of ice and a wonderful afternoon in Thomas Bay with a short hike up to see a waterfall. Whales were spotted yet again this evening.
Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My…. Well, not really but today I did get to see a lot of wildlife, both in and out of the water. In the morning I actually snorkeled and in the afternoon we got to see an otter, harbor seals, a sea lion, eagles, whale and even a one eyed mink….Later the ship went through the Wrangell Narrows.
