Awesome Wildlife of Icy Strait

Alaska, Road Trip, States

It was a wonderfully exciting day in Hoonah, Alaska. Despite the rain, we saw lots of wildlife both marine and aerial from the whale watching boat. Loved the hospitality of the local people as they shared a little of their culture with us. At the Wild Alaska Cooking School we created and enjoyed some delicious salmon and halibut dishes! One of the delightful aspects of Icy Strait is that we were the only ship in port so the area was not so totally overrun with tourists!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
