Airship | Skagway, AK

Another gorgeous day in Lynn Canal and up the Taiya Inlet to Skagway! Here’s our new view, at the Small Boat Harbor: Skagway, Alaska is pretty much the furthest north in the Inside Passage that we can travel by boat. I’m so glad the weather was great and we got to come all the way up here. It’s beautiful! Blue dot on map is us: There’s only one cruise ship here today, so the town … Read more

Airship | Heading up Lynn Canal

Kevin returned from Boston yesterday late afternoon and we just chilled on Airship for the evening at the dock in Juneau. I made us some dinner (chicken breast with truffled risotto and roasted brussels sprouts). This morning we still hadn’t decided if we wanted to leave Juneau today or wait until tomorrow morning.

Airship | Wrangell to Petersburg

We left Wrangell early (6:30am) to take advantage of the current in Wrangell Narrows. Commercial crabbing season opened this morning so it was busy around here! The current flows both ways in Wrangell Narrows, so we timed it to enter the south end on the end of a flood, using the current boost to get us to the middle of the narrows at slack, and then got a nice push … Read more
