July 19, 2006 - Wildlife and Glacier cruise from Seward, AK - Part 2

We are going up close to Aialik Glacier:

It takes three shots to show the entire glacier:

Some telephoto shots of the glacier:

The glacier was calving as we watched, it could be quite loud.  Here is a harbor seal in the sea ice:

After about 20 minutes we pulled away:

A quiet spot in Aialik Bay:

A humpback whale gave us a show in front of Pederson Glacier:

We saw another humpback while in the rougher waters going back but didn't get any pictures.

The journal from our other wildlife and glacier tour out of Valdez is here.   The two cruises were quite different, so it was worth taking both.

Back to 2006    Back to Seward Part 1
