Glacier Bay

Day 6 – Glacier Bay – Yesterday we went here, its basically an inlet with a number of glaciers on either side. We got to within a quarter of a mile of John Hopkins’ Glacier. On the way out we spent 3 hours on deck watching for whales and managed a couple of small sightings. Kathryn got a better view than me as I was stuck behind the camera. Definetely got a flipper in one picture though. Kathryn did get a good picture of some seals surfacing.

We had some great weather, the naturalist on board said its the best weather that Glacier Bay has seen all summer.
