Trip Day 10 (Cruise day 7?) Fjords and Glacier

Last full day of the Cruise, along with the amazing scenery, only one thing on offer today, a small boat up to a calving glacier.

I open the curtains to seagulls floating by on icebergs, steep cliffs and waterfalls everywhere.

The icebergs floating by are from a tidal glacier we will shortly see. The icebergs are in all shapes and sizes, some are very blue and others glassy sculptures.

As we motor in our inflatable boat up to the Glacier, a baby seal swims by, a curious Harbour seal keeps a watchful eye on us, while we keep our distance from the seals on icebergs who have come there to give birth.

Next, the tidal glacier in all its glory (although the afternoon group got a calving enough to rock the boat, and for us to feel it back on the ship!) This is hard to see in the photos, but its probably the size of a small car.

But wait there is more – but I only got the splash!

Our time is up, back to the ship we go for the next lot to have their turn. On our way we pass a vintage motor yacht on its way to see the glacier.

So we put the glacier behind us, and head towards our nights mooring and a final dinner with Captain. When I looked back over my photos I don’t seem to have taken any of our nights resting place – an oversight, as it was beautiful, nestled in a little bay with other vessels, fishing boats, yachts and another adventure ship.

  1. What an awesome log of our journeys!!! I tried to keep track of all the locales from each day on board the Endeavor…but you are on top of it!! Thanks so much for sharing…Scott and I totally enjoyed ourselves and cannot stop talking about the trip..My knees 4 wks later are still sore from joining Scott and his hiking crew on the big 9hr hike to Swan Lake with guide Conner, arriving back in time for polar plunge event..not me, just Scott! :)))

  2. Thanks for the wonderful pics and commentary. Now I don’t feel so bad that my travel journal stayed lost in the bottom of the suitcase.–thrown over in favor of enjoying the beautiful scenes, wonderful company, and games of Uno! It was a great time and great of you to share.
