Blue bird day on the Fjord Express to Juneau!

The Fjordlines trip from Skagway via Haines and down to Juneau was a highlight of our Alaska Trip.  We have done several wildlife tours internationally, and seen more on this trip than anywhere else in the world.  The time spent just watching the Sea Lions congregated on the rocks along the shoreline, roaring and smelling was phenomenal–just as good as National Geographic films. The number of whales that we got to see as they breeched and fed was multiple, both in the morning and the evening return trip.  Add in the many  Eagles, some nesting, and in flight, could not have been duplicated anywhere.  Oh, and don’t forget the Seals that came to play along side the boat!  The blueberry muffins were “to die for” with the hot coffee.  Who would’ve thought one could have a tasty snack and a delicious evening meal, all while enjoying the great out of doors of Alaska.
