The Coastal Explorer leaves from the first slip at the Seward small boat harbor.

Throughout our cruise, the captain and crew gave a running narrative of Seward’s history, how Resurrection Bay got its name and major events such as World War II , the 1964 earthquake, the Alaska Railroad and geological notes about Kenai Fjords National Park.

Sailing past Bear Glacier, where huge icebergs are visible on the other side of the glacial moraine.

I was surprised by the number of kids on board. They were fascinated when the captain nosed the boat up to some frozen waterfalls in Humpy Cove…and when we saw the sea lions sunning on the rocks! I think Thumb Cove (pictured, below) was one of the most scenic points. May is a great time to cruise, as all of the glaciers are covered in fresh snow…and the mountains looked like a giant ice cream sundae.

Thumb Cove.

Get out of the house this weekend. Take the kids. The road from Anchorage is in good shape–it’s an easy 2.5-hour drive. CLICK HERE for more info.
