Petersburg

Aug 30, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


In calm, glistening waters, our day began cruising down Frederick Sound and the Wrangell Narrows were surrounded by the gorgeous mountains of Tongass National Forest. We watched for wildlife out on deck. After a tasty brunch, we arrived in the historic fishing town of Petersburg. With clear blue skies the weather was magnificent, and guests enjoyed several terrific options to choose from, including muskeg walks, photography walks, bike riding, dock walks and flightseeing. In the evening, Petersburg local Becky Knight graciously provided a recap detailing the life of a multi-generational Alaskan commercial fishing family.

Lastly, we ended the evening with a favorite dinner extravaganza – crab night!
