The 2019 Slowboat Flotilla Season was amazing!
We left Prevost Harbor, WA in the San Juan Islands on May 5, 2019 and spent the next five weeks traveling up the Inside Passage through British Columbia and Southeast Alaska, arriving in Sitka on June 7, 2019. 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.
Next, we took most of the group along an extended series of flotillas exploring some of the most remote and least-traveled wonders of Southeast Alaska, including the rugged outside of Chichagof Island in the Gulf of Alaska, Icy Strait, Juneau, the incomparable Ford’s Terror and Dawes Glacier, the outside of Kuiu and Prince of Wales Islands, Coronation Island, and beautiful Misty Fjords in Behm Canal. We then proceeded south down the “outside of the inside” visiting remote anchorages on our way back down the Inside Passage to the north end of Vancouver Island.
Finally, we reprised our popular extended cruise down the outside of Vancouver Island, exploring the rugged and remote Pacific coast, exploring each of the five remarkable sounds – on our way to Victoria.
