Posts on the trip planning are still in the works, so as a small token in the meantime, here are more photos from our trip to Alaska. After Denali we took Alaska Railroad down to Seward for some quality ocean time. We did a sea kayaking excursion, a cruise around the bay and a fishing charter. We won’t discuss the fishing charter right now, but the rest was amazing.
The pictures above were from sea kayaking. We were going to do a full day but the winds were too high so we had to switch to an afternoon trip, but we still got an “all you can eat” salmon buffet lunch first which was pretty sweet. We picked up starfish, chased puffins, and at the end of the day as the sun was setting we saw a whale fluking. Of course we didn’t have our phones out, but on our wildlife and glacier cruise we got some great pictures (below).
Two whales swam directly under our boat. Close to the boat above, and as they swam away below.
