Williams Cove and Tracy Arm

Aug 29, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


This morning we woke to brilliant sunshine and our first glimpses of glacial ice floating past the ship! At Williams Cove, every kayak and paddleboard was in the water and those exploring the shoreline caught some great views of a brown bear. Weaving our way through Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness later in the afternoon, we found ourselves surrounded by dramatic glacial fjords and enormous wilderness that photographs and words simply fail to explain. Up close and personal encounters with mountain goats, harbor seals, and calving glaciers are experiences not many of us will soon to forget.

Emily was raised by two veterinarians in the mountains of Central Oregon, where she spent much of her time on the back of a horse dreaming about the sea. Her fascination was solidified by visits to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and summers spent gazing into tide pools and listening for killer whales off the coast of British Colombia.
