Home from an awesome  Glacier Bay Alaska Photo Tour!  It exceeded my high expectations.  We had amazing scenery, and bubble net feeding humpback whales!  Plus, got close views and photos of mountain goats with brand new babies, orcas and even brown bear which was a bit of a bonus.  Also had a really fun group – all but two I had known, or traveled with previously, so it was like getting together with old and new friends!

Seeing Mc Bride Glacier and Inlet was a real treat. You can only access it with a small skiff at the right tide, so very few people ever get in here. Some of the icebergs were stunning, more to come in the days ahead.

For a sense of scale, that is a giant Holland American cruise ship M/V Noordam with nearly 2,000 passenger and 800 crew that is being dwarfed by the Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska scenery!

I fly down today to begin another trip to Glacier Bay as part of a photo tour – really looking forward to getting back!

Last year at Margerie Glacier, Glacier Bay National Park. I will be back there next week with a photo tour – can’t wait!! Hopefully we have as much luck with the breaching whales as last year. I think the boat helps convey the massive scale of this beautiful place.

Unfortunately a valued guest has to delay her bear photo tour until next summer.  However, that does open up a rare spot for my Alaska Bear Photo Tour!  All my Alaska trips for 2018 filled last summer, so this is rare opportunity!  The dates are June 25th to July 1 – you can read a whole bunch more here:  Alaska Bear Photo Tour.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call.  First deposit takes the spot.

Our Alaska photo tours for 2018 have all been sold out for a number of months.  Unfortunately one of our guests recently received a serious medical diagnosis and is going to have to push their visit back one year.  This opens up a rare spot for this long running very popular photo tour.  The first person with a deposit will get the spot.  So if you want to spend your days up close and personal photographing these amazing animals this trip if for you!  Here are all the details:  Alaska Bear and Puffin Photo Tour   Thanks!
