Alaska

Captain’s Choice

The UnCruise itinerary is always subject to change, maybe due to wildlife sightings, weather or ice conditions, or just because the Captain wants to go somewhere different. Captain Dano decided he was going to try to go up Tracy Arm to the Sawyer Glaciers. Not many boats had made it up there this year (meaning 2016, not 2019).

There was a ton of ice floating in our way, but he persevered and got very close before turning around. We could see parts of the glacier, but didn’t make it to the face. It was still exciting, because the shapes and colors of the ice were enough to keep us entertained for a couple of hours. I remember enjoying most of the afternoon cruise from the bridge. Passengers were almost always welcome to visit the bridge.

We must have stepped inside for dinner, and when we came back out on deck, we saw this bear. It was close to 8pm. Then a while later, we saw a lone whale. It was getting too dark to chase wildlife, but it had been a great day.
