Kayaking among the bergy bits, Alaska

While some folks got closer to this calving tidewater glacier in the zodiac with first mate Paul Smith, these two took a kayak among the ice bergs. When you visit Alaska’s glaciers on the Maple Leaf, you’ll spend hours exploring this amazing world, which is filled with stunning beauty, booming creaks and crashes as ice falls to the sea, and also the sounds of bountiful wildlife: arctic terns, bald eagles, harbour seals and their pups, and more. What’s more, you’ll be out in it, with only the quiet of the fjord as a backdrop to the sounds of nature. Photo taken on an Alaska adventure cruise by Capt. Kevin Smith.
