Day 18: Prince Rupert to Foggy Bay

On to Alaska! The weather forecast called for decreasing winds throughout the day, so we weren’t in any rush to leave. We ended up shoving off around 7:30 a.m. Winds were light and transiting Venn Passage was uneventful.

Our good luck with weather continued. The sun unexpectedly shone and wind was light all day.
Excellent weather across Dixon Entrance
We spotted some very active humpbacks (though they were far away) and had only a light swell to contend with. Three of the boats opted to skip Foggy Bay and run straight to Ketchikan. The rest of us enjoyed a very relaxing afternoon and evening in Foggy Bay. I spotted a bear when entering the bay. Once I had the anchor set I hopped in the dinghy for a closer look.

First bear of the trip, spotted in Foggy Bay.
Tomorrow we’ll make the final 35 mile run into Ketchikan.
