Friday, glacier day and our last full day on the boat. The entire day was dedicated to the glacier viewing. We anchored inside Endicott Arm to view Dawes Glacier. They put us on the skiffs for the 5-mile ride to the face of the glacier. As soon as we get in the skiffs the temperature dropped drastically. There are ice chunks all around us. Some as big as busses. We saw seals resting on top of mini icebergs. When we got to the face we saw a huge calving almost immediately. It was super loud and exciting. There is nothing like seeing global warming tear this planet apart. We saw several other smaller calving. Lots of other harbor seals popped their heads out to say hello. Our skiff was the last one standing of the 4 skiffs. The others got too cold, or had to change their tampons. One the way back to the big boat we saw 3 orca whales in Endicott Arm. This is something that never happens. The entire crew said they had never seen whales that far inside the Arm. The whales were heading for a dead end, the Arm ends at Dawes Glacier. We could not wait around to see what happened, we had a hard BOB at 1230…back on board. That evening all cocktails were served with ice from the glacier’s broken pieces. Joel also made the dinner table centerpiece out of a piece of retrieved ice from the waters. The night ended with a group goodbye and an amazing slideshow of the week made by Larry. He used crew pictures and pictures from some of us passengers. Lots of pictures from the day HERE if you are interested.
