Gray Whale Cruise

Last Saturday we drove down to Seward to take a Gray Whale Cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park. This year they were expecting over 20,000 Gray Whales to come along the Alaskan coast way along the migration path....however this year all the tours combined had only seen one, and the season is supposed to be almost over.
That did not stop us from seeing A LOT of wildlife (part of #86 on the list)...beginning with some kayakers...

Mountain Goats....


A couple of Humpback Whales...


Dall's Porpoises....


Plenty of birds...


Including some Bald Eagles...


And of course some big old Sea Lions jumping into the water...


And finally some great views of Kenai Fjords National Park and Seward.


This is the first of many adventures for this summer...so stay tuned!

  1. Wow! So cool! I like the sea lions best, but the bald eagle was awesome too.
