The Aleutian Ballad

A friend at work called me this morning about a tour boat that had a cruise ship cancellation so was offering locals a special price, we jumped at the chance and I am glad we did. The boat could have carried about 120+ but only had about a dozen passengers so we had an amazing trip. We saw seals, lots and lots of eagles, rat fish, king crab, tanner crab, snow crab, box crab, and octopus. Here are the pictures.

The next group of pictures is of eagles that they feed with herring to get them in close.
