Day 44: Pack Creek to Tracy Arm Cove

Another foggy morning. By the time we departed the fog had lifted a bit, but it closed back down as we made our way out of Seymour Canal. With light boat traffic, radar, AIS, and GPS, it was no big deal.

We did see more whales today, although not as close as we had on the trip in. The highlight of the morning was a small group of porpoises that played in the bow wave for a few minutes. Their ability to zoom and dart through the water is really amazing.

Tonight we’re in Tracy Arm Cove, also known as No Name Cove. It’s a nice anchorage, and strategically located for heading into Tracy Arm tomorrow. A few hours after we arrived Hans and Terri on Mellow Moments, whom I’d met last time I was in Alaska and kept in touch with, arrived. They’d been in Tracy Arm today and reported minimal ice at North Sawyer Glacier. We visited for a few hours and caught up…always fun running into familiar faces up here.
