Today our cruise ship visited Sitka. It was another short day, just 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, and once again we have elected to take an excursion out on the water. Just can't seem to get enough of this! We've chosen another tour run by the Allen Marine Company, but this time we'll be in the waters of Sitka Sound, and the focus is sea otters, which are very cute, but pretty darn small when you're photographing them from the top deck of a boat! We did see several groups of otters, but this is about as close as I could get.
We were fortunate in that we also saw some humpback whales (though no bubble-net feeding like we saw in Juneau), seals, and eagles.
Sitka Sound was beautiful as well, and we totally enjoyed our three hour wildlife adventure.
Once back on board, we really enjoyed the scenery and myriad of fishing boats we saw as our ship slowly departed the waters near Sitka and headed for Ketchikan.
