Glacier Bay Adventures aboard M.V. Steller

We took a 24 hour trip aboard the Steller with Captain Dan and Andrea. In May, it stays light until about 11:30, then light again at 4:00am. We saw a bear on the shoreline just minutes from the dock, then saw about 50 seals feeding, then the sea-lion haul-out, then Puffins, a hundred harbor porpoise, then a bear and a mountain goat on the same mountainside. We saw a mountain goat with a kid. We then went further up into Glacier Bay, watched several glaciers until near midnight without getting to see any calving. We went to bed at midnight, then up at 4:00 am, and on to whale territory. We saw several humpbacks very close to the boat. Another awesome trip. Janet and I were the only passengers on board.
