My Whale Watching Adventure in Alaska

My Whale Watching Adventure in Alaska

Today our group went on a whale-watching cruise through the Prince William Sound in the Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska! We saw a bunch of wildlife such as bald Eagles, puffins, seals, and sea otters. We even got to see a group of whales feeding which was probably my favorite part of the entire trip. I feel very lucky that we were able to see such a rare thing. 

The mountains and glaciers were just beautiful, and it made me think about how crazy it was that we were in Alaska, surrounded by incredible views in such a unique experience. 

Our boat stopped at an island towards the end of our trip, and we ate a very good dinner. We all skipped rocks on the beach before we returned to the boat. On the way back to shore even though we didn't see any wildlife or crazy views, it was still a very peaceful and beautiful experience. 

The boat trip was definitely one of my favorite parts of my Alaska Expedition, and I really wish I could go back and see more of the whales!
