The Inside Passage
Off the shore of southeast Alaska lie dozens of islands in a scenically splendid waterway known as the Inside Passage. Hundreds come to holiday in the Inside Passage aboard cruise ships, awed by the deep, forested fjords intruded by glaciers, while bald eagles swoop and whales and sea lions play in the pristine waters.

Took a ferry trip on the famous Inside Passage which was really scenically beautiful and relaxing, but was I disappointed not to see any of the promised whale and dolphin life. Maybe the wrong time of year?? But it was special nevertheless and being able to see land on both sides for the duration meant that there is always something of interest to see among the fishing villages and the water was flat and calm - nice for seasick-prone people like me!

So I motored up the Inside Passage. A big fishing boat heading to the Bering Sea. And it was winter. So this wasn't supposed to be a pleasure trip. But this is some amazing land and water. I was freezing but would stay out to watch the dolphins diving around our boat. Watch drastic mountains erupt out of the sea. Waterfalls and dense forest. Eagles and otters. Even the rednecks in the boat with me had moments of silent reverence.
