I went down to Valdez, Alaska last week. I’d been through there before briefly so I knew what to expect, but this time it really blew my socks off! We started out with an exceptional day of sea kayaking with Pangaea Adventures.
The guides were great, the views were awesome, the boat ride super fun, the icebergs fantastic, and the wildlife up close and personal.
After that we stopped on a highway overpass near the fish hatchery and watched a momma grizzly teaching her cub how to fish. The cub was great- he would catch a fish and then drop it and chase it through the water. He would set one on the river bank and walk away and then be super confused when it flopped back into the river. We stopped by to watch them both in the evening and the next morning.
We had an amazing trip throughout Alaska but the one place we really wish we had been able to stay longer was Valdez!
