379 Summer Cruise.jpg

If you spend enough time on the water in southeast Alaska, you will see whales.  Seeing them close, and getting photographs, is another story.  I knew Frederick Sound was a good place to find whales, and traveling through it on a ferry proved exciting.  Many whales were spotted.  However, photographing from the ferry is not the best way to get great photos.<br />
	I flew into Kake and hired a guide to take me out for a couple of days.  We saw, and photographed, plenty of humpback whales.  At one time we had 8 "humpies" circling the boat and surface feeding.  What a treat!
