Alaska Video No. 11 – Bears and more bears

We recently uploaded the next installment in our Alaska voyage video series. This one takes you through the islands of Southeast Alaska, where we find deserted anchorages and a wilderness river teeming with bears and salmon before reaching the busy town of Ketchikan, our last Alaskan port before heading south to Canada. You can find the episodes leading up to it in order here. 🙂

Hope you enjoy it!

Alaska Voyage Video 8: The Alaska Peninsula

Another episode in our video series!

Our last video covered the start to our 2016 sailing season, in Dutch Harbor Alaska, in which we tackled the most necessary repairs to CELESTE following a typhoon. In this episode, with the boat in sailing condition, we set off to retrace our outward (2014) route back to Washington State. Leaving the Bering Sea behind, we sail along the Alaska Peninsula, one of the state’s most primeval-feeling and least known coasts. Volcanoes smoke, brown bears pace the shore, waterfalls tumble down cliffs, tides run strong, and glaciers gleam white in the sun. Hope you enjoy Episode 8!

P.S. I’ve also created a playlist for our Arctic Voyage, including the ‘trailer’ and Episodes 1-6 which cover our 2015 journey from Dutch Harbor to Point Barrow on the North Slope and return.
