Cruising Alaska: May/June 2006

The disadvantage of Seattle departures is that you sail west of Vancouver Island, with either distant or no shore views, and often rough seas. We had great luck with the seas, but there was little to see - like cruising the Caribbean. This photo was taken just before 6:00 p.m. as we passed the Queen Charlotte Islands - the Zaandam, which left Seattle just before us, is seen closer to shore.
