Exploring Tracy Arm

Even though the trip isn't billed as a whale watching trip, we saw many humpback whales in Stephens Passage just north of the mouth of Tracy Arm, and the captain spent as much time with the whales as we wanted. Some whales came very close to our boat - within 50 feet. This photo was shot at 2:37 p.m. - although I have much closer shots, this one shows the mood of the afternoon better.
