Cruising Alaska: May/June 2006

Monday, May 29: We saw several humpback whales 2-3 hours south of Juneau, always a good area for them. As always, views were distant and fleeting, though - small-boat excursions are needed to get close. Getting closer to Alaska's capital, there were a few sailboats - the one seen in this photo made a quick dodge out of the middle of the channel after several blasts of our horn disturbed his day-dreaming.
