The cruise to Northwestern Fjord on 6/29 was wonderful in every respect. Sightings of varied wildlife (including whales) were abundant, the scenery magnificent, and Captain Richard's narrative informative. He worked to get us close to wildlife, to the glaciers, and to beautiful waterfalls in a small cove. The crew was friendly, the food good, and the boat comfortable (wtih freedom to roam inside and out). We were lucky to have a sunny day and multiple whale sightings, but the trip would be worthwhile in any event. We'll always remember it with delight.
