... numerous small islands, rock stacks and narrow passages, including Krouzof Island, dominated by Mt Edgecomb, a reminder of still frequent earthquakes (latest scare being in January) given the proximity to a couple of fault lines.

Two hours of fantastic close-up observations of Bald Eagles (incl one sitting in a huge nest) and assorted other sea birds (eg marbled murralets, glaucous winged gulls –sea gulls!), harbour porpoises, sea otters (one raft ...
