... in Emerald Cove for 2 weeks at a time as it is only 30 mins from there to the precautionary area, where they meet the tankers. The precautionary area is just south west of Bligh Reef & was set following the Exxon Valdez disaster & is where the tankers have to be met to be brought into port.

As we were approaching Valdez we saw the Valdez Marine Terminal, which marks the end of the Trans Alaskan Pipeline. The pipeline was constructed to transport ...
