Alaska 2016 | Day 52 | Endicott Arm Cove to Tracy Arm Cove

I woke up to the boat rolling heavily. A quick check of the AIS screen confirmed my suspicion: a cruise ship had just passed us at 16 knots.

After breakfast we headed for Tracy Arm Cove. Another calm day, even some sunshine. Soon after departing a couple of tour boats made big course changes towards shore, then throttled down. I could see passengers looking toward shore and figured they were watching a bear. As we got closer we saw the bear, too. Good thing, since Brendan and Maddie hadn’t yet seen a bear.

The rest of the trip out to Tracy Arm Cove was uneventful. Not much traffic or ice, and thankfully, the shifter and transmission worked perfectly!
