For those with a naturalist streak, few places on earth compare with the wonders of Southwest Alaska. Brown bears amble along the hills and plains, and more than 240 bird species inhabit Alaska’s Southwest region. The region’s terrain ranges from a landscape of volcanoes in Katmai National Park created by the 1912 eruption of the Novarupta volcano, to the windswept Aleutian Islands that make a 1,000-mile sweep toward Asia.

Our cruise up the Inside Passage on NCI Star was wonderful !!!!

I went fishing in two ports and had all the salmon smoked.  It is delicious.

My guests went whale watching and did lots of shopping.

The tour was offered by Park National Bank of Newark, Ohio.They have a group called Freedom Years. They offer many trips throughtout the world. They in conjuction with travel agents and the cruiseline provided a worry free trip with lots of amenities.

I toured Alaska & fished seven years ago and could not wait to return.  My traveling companions want to begin planning another trip to Alaska. The next trip will begin with a flight to Anchorage and a land  trip.
