Don your warmest toque and down vest and join BCA members Norm & Beth Cooper as they explore the frosty wilds of SE Alaska in their latest cruising adventure aboard Sarah Jean II. Heart stopping stories and breathtaking scenes, captured in hundreds of dazzling photos, will transport you to this unique part of the world not too far from our own doorstep.
Watch bears scoop salmon from raging rivers, thread your way through menacing bergy bits en route to the towering glaciers of Tracy Arm and see pods of humpback whales bubble net feeding, a behaviour unique to SE Alaska. And for those who like to fish, join the hunt for giant halibut and the always elusive Alaskan king salmon!
For those planning to cruise SE Alaska, there will be some useful information presented on routes, marinas, anchorages and even a few fishing tips, including top secret halibut holes – rumour has it that the coordinates will be shared – be sure to bring your iPad or pen and paper! Beth and Norm will also share their favourite halibut recipes, just so you are prepared when you catch the big one.
All welcome to the third and final presentation of the 2018 Ocean Cruising Adventure series; for further information and to purchase tickets for this event, click here.
