Your cruise begins in Hoonah, a small mostly native Tlingit village on Icy Strait and near the entrance to Glacier Bay. Orcas and humpback whales are often seen as the trip departs. A special feature of this wildlife experience is visiting two outstanding bear reserves—both Anan Creek, with its photo-blind platform and either or both black and brown bears, and Pack Creek, the best-known place in Southeast for being with grizzly bears or “brownies.” Another important focus of this voyage is the incredible breaching, resting, lunging and bubble-net feeding humpback whales. In this area during the summer, there are an estimated 300 individually identified humpbacks, at one time, all actively feeding! As many as 800 have been photo identified using this area. Many bubble-net feed, together they swim in a circle, blowing a helix of bubbles underwater that rises to the surface as a wall, surrounding and entrapping the prey. At the surface it appears as a continuing ring of bubbles. The humpbacks are indicating exactly where they will appear next—right in the center of the circle—sometimes in an explosive leap!
