In Day 2, we traveled around Tracy Arm.  There was a kayaking adventure in Williams Cove which I am happy to report, I did not take a swim in the water. After the kayaking, the guest were treated to a photography lesson lead by ship’s photography expert.

After lunch, we took the zodiacs to watch the South Sawyer Glacier.

It was a full day of watching glaciers, habor seals, bears and other wildlife. But the highlight of the day came around the 10 p.m  when a full moon rose just about a mountain range.
