Back in June my husband and I were invited to be guests aboard the Island Spirit for a 9-day cruise through the Inland Passage of Alaska. Immediately following that, I began the non-stop whirlwind preparations for this 90-day journey you and I are on now. There was not one spare minute available to process those images or write about that truly awesome experience. But I will once I am home again. For now, I just want to say that if you have any thought of traveling to Alaska’s legendary Inland Passage, this is the way to do it!
Capt. Jeff will do absolutely anything within the bounds of safety to see that you have a fabulous adventure. He drives the 128’ boat like it was a VW bug and puts it into magnificent fjords where other boats only dream of going. There is a capacity of just 32 passengers and a relaxed, casual atmosphere – and the food is awesome! I can only say wonderful things about the entire experience.
Their website www.smallalaskaship.com includes a video produced by the videographer who was on the same cruise with us – it’s a great way to see what this is all about. (I’m the one without a face – there is always a camera in front of it. But, you can hear me squealing loud and clear when the whale was feeding, blowing and dancing about 50’ from the boat.)
It’s a long way from the Mississippi to Alaska, but I seem to know a lot of people who dream of traveling to that stunning, pristine land. If you are one of them, check this out, you can’t go wrong with Captain Jeff! Gayle
