Pipe Dreamer?

Hello! Newbie in all senses of the word. I'm a WA native and explorer, but historically not on water. My explorations (and my husband's) have taken us many places (living in Africa, hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc, overlanding in our vanagon and now wedge camper/Tacoma throughout the beautiful Pacific NW, small boat cruise (The Boat Company) in SE Alaska and many others. We are doing the Boat Company again in 2023. We were in Kodiak this last summer, and I just LOVED being on the water and being in AK.

We are in our early 50s and thinking about the next chapter and I have these visions of boating the Inner Passage. I've talked about it for several years now - cost, lack of knowledge of being on the water have been barriers, but I think it just might be time for action to see if this pipe dream holds up. My next step is taking a 3 day on-the-water power boat class (Anacortes or Bellingham). Anybody else gone from newbie to AK in 5-10 years? It seems that there is so much to explore locally out of Seattle (home). Anyway, here I am!
