I think I hear whales!

Posted by on
Guest evaluation from our Alaska Inside Passage Adventure Voyage: Eastern Coves
 
Please recount any personal highlights, inspirations or insights you experienced on your Wildland Adventure: 
1. Crawling into bed, pulling the covers up and Wally saying, "I think I hear whales!" We grabbed our jackets and headed out to the bow where about 20 other passengers stood in silence! Capt Danny (We loved Capt Danny!!!) had turned lights on shining down into the water turning it jade green. Off the the boat but out of range of any light, we could see, hear and smell the whales as they blew and breached. The splash of the breach and shadow of the breaching whale visible. At that moment I looked up to see the Milky Way so close it looked like you could touch it and witnessed several shooting stars ... night of the Perseides meteor shower!! Honestly, I get goose bumps every time I recall that moment!
2. The incredibly soothing voice of Alison (I think it was her) coming over the announcement at very early o'clock (1:00 a.m.) just slightly more than a whisper announcing a glimpse of the Aurora for anyone wanting to venture on deck. It was a green and ghostly glow behind a small mountain and absolutely beautiful!
3. In the middle of a meeting to discuss activities, boat stops and the announcement that we have black and white visitors is made. There was almost a stampede to get out to see the male and female Orca that we SO fortunate to have seen!! That was entirely thanks to Capt Danny and his crew as we were all inside at that time and would never have caught them. He stopped the boat and we watched and watched and savored every moment ... until they were gone!
 
Sincerely,
 
Monica L. and Wally M.
