Our trip was fantastic! We had a great crew...Karl and Craig, father and son, Harry and Susan, seasoned paddlers, Melissa and Ken, first timers to AK, Sarah, solo backpacking through AK and Thom, my brother, kidnapped for a birthday trip.
Here's Jillyin....my co-guide posing in front of Holgate Glacier. We had perfect weather this day with a bit of sun, minimal wind and comfortable temperatures.

Our second day we paddled into Pederson Lagoon. This is always a highlight, even for the guides, mostly because we can't always make it into this special place. The tide has to be just right for this option to work out in our favor.

Our third day was a bit soggier than the rest...but that didn't ruin our fun. After a short morning paddle we load up onto the Stellar Explorer for our wildlife cruise back into town.
