Heading out shortly for five days in Kenai Fjords National Park. Can’t wait! This was from an overnight shake down cruise last Friday.

We will be very comfortable. Sixty seven feet for just 4 guests!

Red Fox

On my second week of my Alaska Bear and Puffin Tour we didn’t see the red fox who had become such a fixture on my first week. That is, until he showed up briefly my second to last evening – just in time!

So Many Cubs!

Home from a second amazing week with bears! Three sets of spring cubs this year! Plus, so much more. Along with few human visitors, so far the summer of 2020 has exceeded my high expectations. This is the famous sow crimp with triplets born this past winter.

Feeding time

Two young cubs watch on as a mom drops the remains of a clam she just dug up. The mom eats most of them, but every now and then leaves one for one of the cubs.
