    This started off my bucket list travelling in 2006.We spent a week on the MV Sikumi-an 8 passenger vessel.I highly reccomend it.So a few pictures of the experience.

    Our cabin.
    The food was superb with shrimp that was freshly hawled in-

    As well as Dungeness crab-

    Though we did have to catch the halibut ourselves-

    The cruise was a round trip from Petersburg.Kayaking was a feature on several days.Kayaking with the whales was just magic.Unfortunately on the day that they were surfacing beside us we had not taken the camera.But with the only sound you could hear was the whales across the whole bay it was a day i will never forget.

    but also kayaking amongst the bergy bits calving from the Le Conte glacier-

    Then being able to get right in to the glacier face,no one else around and just the sounds of calving.

    We saw bald headed eagles catching salmon-we also did the same.Experienced the hot baths at Baranov Springs.and waterfalls aplenty.

    It was a magnificent way to start my bucket list-and it should be on yours.
