Kenai-Fjords National Park Glacier Excursion
June 19, 2009

Dall's porpoises, harbor porpoises, Humpback whales, Steller Sea Lions, birds and more

The two RV Gypsies explored the beauty and grandeur of Kenai Fjords National Park onboard a smooth sailing catamaran. The cruise included a fully narrated tour from a National Park Ranger. Water, coffee and tea were available throughout the cruise at no additional charge, plus a lunch choice of Alaska salmon or turkey lunch meat on a bagel with cream cheese. Complimentary use of binoculars on board (some cruises charge $5 for binoculars use).

Seward played a vital role in WWII. The Port of Seward was the northern-most ICE-FREE port and served as the southern terminus of the Alaska Railroad, a critical supply line for the war effort.

Several Dall's porpoises played alongside the boat for quite some time. They swam fast and at the same speed of the boat. They are black with a white belly, similar in color to an Orca, but much smaller. They can travel up to 50 mph.

A camera on the rocks constantly monitors the Steller Sea Lions. A local TV station broadcasts these live images, often zooming in on individual Sea Lions to check their markings so they know one Sea Lion from another.
