In its June 2008 issue, Popular Photography Magazine presented an article on tips for a photography adventure in the Alaskan Panhandle.. The article discusses the best way to see it all via a small-ship cruise. It also highlights small ship photo cruises. Here’s an excerpt:
“But the best way to see it all is on a small-ship cruise, like the Whales and Wilderness photo tour Cruise West (www.cruisewest.com) invited me to take aboard its 84-passenger, 166-foot Spirit of Discovery. The Seattle-based cruise line made arrangements with outside tour operators for optional excursions in and out of Juneau (before and after the cruise) and Sitka, an historic town of about 8,600 where we docked for a day. Cruising on this casual and comfortable ship made it particularly easy — and pleasurable — to visit remote spots that have relatively few resources for tourists.”
