Sitka, Alaska (PRWEB) February 09, 2014
Due to increased interest by visitors in seeing Glacier Bay National Park by sailboat, Sound Sailing announced it has added an additional 10-day trip on S/V BOB departing Juneau July 11-20, August 9-18, and Aug 22-31.
Captain Blain Anderson states, “We are excited to be able to offer one more trip this summer in this spectacular place.” Several berths have been taken, but they have openings for groups up to six, and are offering a 10% discount if trips are booked by March 1st.
Sound Sailing has been offering captained charters in Glacier Bay and Alaska’s Inside Passage for over 25 years. These active adventures are aboard the roomy and modern 50-foot sail vessel BOB, a four-cabin Catalina sailboat.
“Glacier Bay is probably best known to everyone for its calving tidewater glaciers and rugged scenery, but our guests are amazed at incredible variety of wildlife, as well”, said Anderson. “The lower bay is a rich marine area, and we commonly watch breaching whales, Steller sea lions, porpoises, seals, and orcas in the park.”
The upper bay also has ample wildlife. “Bears are quite common, and we’ve been thrilled to see mountain goats, moose, and wolves,” he stated. “These trips are once-in-a-lifetime fun. Everyone should see Glacier Bay at least once.” Unlike a cruise ship, passengers aboard the BOB can help set the sails, fish for salmon and halibut, take the kayak out for a paddle, beach-comb onshore, and go hiking on a guided trip led by Capt. Blain or Monique Anderson, his wife and partner in the business.
Monique shares, “I love showing the intimate beaches and remote trails to our visitors. This is the best of Alaska, and it is truly magical seeing it from a sailboat.”
Also new this year is a fly-fishing trip in April-May for steelhead, Dolly Varden, and cutthroat trout. Reservations, prices, and details are also available by calling 1(907) 887-9446 or by e-mail capt.blain(at)soundsailing(dot)com
