|Today, we spent the day cruising across the Gulf of Alaska towards Yakutat Bay. We saw humpback whales breaching the water. We also saw Hubbard Glacier close up. It is unusual to get so close to the glacier because of thick ice. But, we did get close and I took a lot of pictures. The ship turned around so passengers on both sides of the ship could get a good view. The mountains are spectacular to see.
