Today we were fortunate enough to take a bay tour with Northern Latitude Adventures and Captain Leif Brasher on the Hougacha(SP?).
We started out from the small boat harbor with a group of 5. These are great cruises for small groups, couples, or individuals because the boat has a six person capacity. Its really a great way to meet new people and be right there with your captain for questions. We met a very nice couple from NY and a gentleman from Argentina.
Being early in the seasons we didn’t expect to see any whales in the bay so we set out to see Sea otters, Sea lions, Sea birds, Harbor seals and what ever else we could find. We were cruising along and the captain says I think I see a spout across the bay, its likely a porpoise. Lets go check it out, well it turned out to be a Humpback whale, and he spotted it from across the bay! We were able to watch it for quite some time before we moved on. It was a beautiful day. We saw Sea lions, Sea otters, Black legged Kity Wakes, Eagles, Glaciers, some beautiful coves and interesting landscape as well as some history about the WWII bunkers located around Resurrection Bay as well as history about the 64 Tsunami.
To top it all off we got lunch, snacks and beverages along the way. Couldn’t ask for a better day. When you're in town you should check out Northern Latitude Adventures.
