Club Expedition to Alaska (Crossing Prince William Sound from West to East) – Awesome
Ever since the clubs first expedition to Alaska in 2008 a group of us had been planning to return in order to cross from Whittier to Valdez using sea kayaks hired from Tom Pogsons Alaskan Kayak School based in Homer. 8 of us completed the journey returning on the Alaskan State Ferry to Whittier on the 29th August.
The group encountered 9 black bears, a humpback whale, Northern (Steller) Sea Lions, numerous harbour seals, sea otters and bald headed eagles. We nearly got trapped in the ice of Columbia Glacier and paddled through the inner lagoon of Shoup Glacier.
