Winter is upon us, and Alaska never looked better.
The pie-maker is dusting off her Betty Crocker and getting us ready for a nice Thanksgiving on the East Coast with family. We send you our best this season, and hope you’re surrounded by friends and family. And pie.

Petersburg is just ripe for plundering…

We are sailing with Vikings and Valkyries to Petersburg – an unsuspecting little town with a nordic heritage for their Little Norway Festival. Seize this opportunity to sail the straits to a wildlife Valhalla. We are offering four trips to Petersburg this seasonbecause it is AWESOME! Join us from Sitka or Juneau, but definitely join us. The Sitka to Petersburg trips feature hot springs, whales, hiking, kayaking, sailing, and fishing. Replace the hot springs with glaciers for the Juneau trips, and you got it. Throw in a lighthouse visit. Skál !!!

Last month was haul-out time and we once again proved the doubters wrong and balanced the BOB up the tidal grid.
The BOB is now sporting a spruced up propeller and new shaft zincs. Too bad only the fish can see the work…
Last year we were incredibly fortunate to have professional wildlife photographer Barbara Eddy aboard. She hosted an onboard photography class with four aspiring photographers in Glacier Bay.  If you are interested in joining her aboard the BOB this summer, please let us know. We promise you will learn a ton, and take much better photos. She is a very patient teacher, as we found. And that’s good, because…
This is Barbara’s photo of a breaching whale in Glacier Bay…
…aaaand here’s Blain’s photo.
The S/V BOB is a perfect platform for finding wildlife, and we are thrilled to be working with Barbara again to offer a floating photography class in spectacular SE Alaska.

If you are tempted by a sailing trip in 2018, best get a hold of us soon. We are offering 4 trips in Glacier Bay and they are mostly all are booked. We also have one to the glaciers in Endicott Arm. Our schedule is posted on our web calendar.

Don’t forget to check out our photo album for the year. The Best of 2017 Album can be seen on Google Photos
