Cruise Review: Alaska’s Whales & Wilderness aboard Spirit of Discovery
We just published a new cruise review on Cruise West’s Spirit of Discovery sailing Alaska’s Whales & Wilderness cruise.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Our guide said that there is a list of potential sightings for the entire season and that WE SAW THEM ALL! Very early on we saw three or four wolves along the shore, going into Glacier Bay, I believe. She said they had never been seen before. When we landed at Fox Creek, on the other side from us was a brown bear mother and her three cubs! The staff was appropriately cautious but allowed us to stay and photograph them and there was no sign of the mother wanting to come closer to us. We saw whales on three different occasions and on the last, the humpbacks came very close to the ship and set up bubble nets right off the side. Our guide once again said she had never actually seen that, only read about it.”
