Alaska 2013, Day 38, Seward Day 2
Tuesday July 9, 2013
We waited for the weather to break for a fjords tour. Weather cleared yesterday, clouds were breaking up. We had heard from a couple people to take the longer tour. Yesterday we booked the 7.5 hr Majors Kenai Fjords tour. Today there was clear sky over the ocean, sun and no wind. We had a great tour. Smooth water, no clouds, lots of sun. The boat went out Resurrection Bay and up Aialik Bay to 2 tide water glaciers. We saw everything; Dall porpoise, humpbacks, orcas, fin whales, otters, seals, sea lions, eagles, puffins.
Lots of fish at the city marina cleaning tables. Lots of salmon and large ling cod, small halibut.
There were Oyster Catchers on the beach tonight. An eagle came into the fish cleaning table to steal from the gulls. The all day boat out of the campground had 2 octopus that they kept and cleaned.
Warm enough for a fire tonight.
