2 days and 2 nights aboard 50' Good Times cruising Northwestern Prince William Sound's protected waters viewing wildlife and unsurpassed scenery, visiting tidewater glaciers and one of North America's largest salmon hatcheries, plus opportunities for kayaking and shrimping.
If fishing is not a priority, this trip provides a great opportunity to experience Prince William Sound's incredible scenery and wildlife in a short period of time. If fishing is a priority, we recommend our 4 day/ 4 night Sightsee Fish Shrimp Combo. Another option is our 2 day cruise combined with one day of fishing on our 40' boat Fool's Gold.
First Night - Board approximately 7 pm, cruise into Port Wells, deploy shrimp pots and anchor in a protected cove for the night.
Day 1 includes pulling the shrimp pots to provide fresh seafood dinner, visiting one of the largest salmon hatcheries in North America, a hike to a hidden waterfall(optional), visits to a small colony of tufted puffins, and a large sea lion haul out frequented by many boisterous and playful sea lions. Humpback whales, porpoise and orca whales frequent this area off and on. After anchoring in a protected cove you will have opportunity to kayak, likely view eagles, sea otters and possibly black bear- the perfect wildlife photography opportunity.
Day 2 includes a visit to Prince William Sounds largest waterfall, cruising scenic Esther Passage and Harriman Fiord, home to numerous tidewater glaciers, seals, sea otters and more. Disembark Whittier approximately 4 pm. Itinerary not guaranteed exactly as described. Wildlife, although somewhat predictable, don't always follow our itinerary. We do guarantee no two trips will be identical.
