Glacier Bay National Park

August 17, 2015

Glacier Bay attracts over 500,000 people each year. Most come by cruise ship, restricted to only two per day to minimise the impact on the wildlife, particularly the many Humpback Whales that feed along the shores.

We were joined by our friends Allan and Alison, both pilots (she, 747's and he, 767's as well as their own small plane) and sailors who we first met as we crossed the Pacific. We had not seen each other since New Zealand in 2011 and it was great to be able to spend some quality time togetheras we cruised around the fiords and glaciers.

 The park has a few tidewater glaciers that draw the cruise ships and their passengers but with a schedule to keep they do not linger long.

Allan and Ali were good friends with the couple who wrote the cruising guide to South East Alaska and took a photo to e mail to them
