11 Sep 05 on a 4.5 hour catamaran tour of 26 glaciers. It was a good tour but not
really exciting until we got to the "Surprise" Glacier which calved in a huge way
just after we got there. I got four action shots of it as a huge chunk of the
face fell off. The 137 foot Klondike Express ran, at the fastest, 41MPH and
threw out 50' rooster tails behind it.
The tour began in Whittier on the Prince William Sound and pretty much covered
135 miles of Port Wells. Most of the glaciers you see are from the College Fjord
until you get to the brilliant blue (where I took most of the pics) glacier
called the Surprise Glacier in the Barry Arm.
