Nice pics. I once took the ferry from Valdez to Whittier and the train out to the station at Turnagain Arm. We had rented an RV for a vacation up there. That was back when they were building the driving tunnel. Pretty country. Chartered a fishing boat out of Seward, mostly halibut. Also took a guided trip on the Kenai River for salmon.

Yep it was a ling cod 48"

That is my first mate Pete holding it up.

That stick sticking out of the water is an Orca. Wish I had my camera out when they first came by. My buddy got some great shots of a couple of Juvenal's playing right next to the boat.

Skip,
Never debate about whether or not to post your pics ... just do it. Looks basically just like SE.

Yep Eric. The Prince William Sound is one gorgeous place to boat.

Every time I take the boat out it is another adventure.

Notice Not another boat in sight. I didn't do that for a reason. the place is pristine and total wilderness.

There is always a cove or anchorage where you have it all to yourself
