NEW: Glacier Crab and Champagne Dinner Cruise originating in Whittier. this cruise begins in the early afternoon, returning to Whittier in the evening.
Anchored in a glassy bay, we partake of a sumptuous breakfast buffet and begin moving out into more open water. Heading for a small group of islands which are home to a sea-lion rookery, we stop to watch Orca Whales on the way. They will come right up to the boat, and seem as interested in us as we are in them. Stopping at the rookery, we take plenty of time to watch their activities, getting close enough to see how huge and ferocious these lions of the sea can be. Next we head for our evening destination where we will have dinner, and launch the kayaks and Zodiaks for some fun along the beach where the ruins of an abandoned town are luring us to explore. Halibut fishermen are busy baiting hooks and loading up the sinkers in hopes of hauling a in a big one. Coffee and dessert, pinochle with the crew, lounging in the salon or on deck, we finish the day. Each day is a different experience,as we circumnavigate Prince William Sound during a 3 or 7 day period.
