Petersburg, Wrangell Narrows and Snow Pass

  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture
  • Alaska

This morning we docked in Petersburg and spent the morning exploring this charming town with its distinct Norwegian flavor. The rain didn’t dampen our spirits – while some us went flightseeing over LeConte Glacier, others strolled through town taking photos, walked the docks lined with commercial fishing boats, or visited an Alaskan bog (muskeg). We bicycled through town, and perused Petersburg’s wonderful bookstore. In the afternoon, our journey continued as we transited Wrangell Narrows, a narrow waterway marked by an inordinate number of red and green channel markers. In Snow Pass, we had fantastic views of humpback whales engaging in cooperative bubble-net feeding.
