Kenai Fjords Cruise
It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining as we cruised the Alaskan gulf into the Fox Islands. On our way our first adventure was the sea otters sunning on the rocks while the dolphins were performing flips by our boat. But then our attention was drawn to the Orca whale waving their HUGE fins at us. We went and saw this amazing glacier and spent 30 minutes watching the ice break away into the ocean. It sounded almost like a thunderstorm. Ice was floating right by our boat. As we headed back home, we saw a pod (group of humpback whales) and a lot of puffin birds skipping across the water. Then we ended with some sea lions hanging out. It was a very calm, peaceful and beautiful day. What a way to end our trip!
