2017 Slowboat Flotilla to Alaska

The 2017 Slowboat Flotilla to Alaska was awesome! Six boats left Roche Harbor, WA in the San Juan Islands on May 21, 2017 and spent the next four weeks traveling up the Inside Passage through British Columbia and Southeast Alaska, arriving in Sitka on June 19. We traversed rapids, executed open ocean crossings, and outsmarted the notorious Pacific Coast weather. On the way, we encountered eagles, bears, whales, porpoises, seals, sea lions, otters, tidewater glaciers, icebergs, and numerous other riches that this amazing region offers.

We built a close camaraderie with our fellow boaters, enjoyed numerous meals and happy hours together, and started some lasting friendships. We all shared remarkable experiences, and improved our boating skills and knowledge along the way through a variety of exciting challenges.
