Brown bear looking for fish

Our first few days in Alaska have been incredible with excellent bear and whale photography.

We saw a few bears at Kadoshan on our first day and photographed them chasing fish, resting and eating sedge grass.

For our second day went went whale watching. After a slow start we saw a humpback whale that was breaching, we headed to where it was performing and enjoyed the spectacular display and enjoyed listening to it’s calls.

Later, more humpbacks arrived and on the cruise back to Tenakee we saw a large pod of orcas which we photographed before heading back for dinner.

Today, we are exploring Tenakee and hope to see some bears in the river near the cabin.

More updates on Saturday!
