We reserved a week at the Sea Otter campground in Valdez, directly on the Prince William Sound. The promised sea otters float past our camper several times each day. There's much to do and photograph around Valdez. Several large glaciers are in the area, one that you can drive to and walk on, others that you can go to by boat. We can see two from our "backyard". The pink salmon are running and it's very easy for a good fisherman to catch his limit in a very short time. Eagles, gulls and seals surround the area near the hatchery, gorging on salmon. A mother grizzly with her cubs lingers in the area and walk right behind the fisherman.
We took a glacier tour on the Lulu Belle. The captain was terrific, determined that we'd see puffins, whales, sea lions, and shorebirds. We lingered in an area with four whales for quite a while, watching as the whales surfaced over and over. One breached in a beautiful show and Breland got the best photos of that event.
When we approached the Columbia glacier the icebergs sparkled in the brilliant sunlight. Breland and I usually avoid "touristy" things, but the Lulu Belle tour was an incredible experience.
