On our nine-day sailing expedition, we photographed the scenic wonders of Alaska's Inside Passage aboard the Kirsten Anne, a luxurious 49' sailboat operated by Captain Neil Nickerson and Alaska Sailing Charters. We observed charming fishing villages, an incredible array of wildlife, and the breathtaking scenery of the Inside Passage. The Kirsten Anne offered an excellent platform to experience Alaska's impressive tidewater glaciers and migrating humpback whales.
