The boats are warm and dry but Prince William Sound is the home of the worlds northernmost temperate rain forest. Good clothing will greatly enhance your outdoor enjoyment of the area.
Rubber boots (aka: the alaska tennis shoe). Need not be expensive and should be about mid-calf high. Should be comfortable to wear and walk in. These will probably be your principal footwear off the boats.
Good quality rain gear; pants and jacket. We use shells large enough to layer underneath for some of those colder locations, ie... sitting or kayaking in front of a tidewater glacier.
Layers. Pile or ‘fleece” is light weight, warm and dries fast.
Don’t forget the battery charger!
Bugs have to make a living too! We try to avoid them, but you should bring bug protection (clothing or chemicals) if you can’t use the off the shelf stuff.
Average temperatures June through August range in the 60’s although we’ve seen it swing from as low as the 40’s to up into the high 70’s. If you are traveling in spring or fall, plan on bringing some extra gear for warmth.
"We cannot express how wonderful you both made this part if our trip! You've gone above and beyond to show us a great time! There aren't enough words to say Thank You."Judy and Donna
"We loved every minute of it. Our time on board the Alexandra was our first true Alaskan adventure - and quite an unforgettable one. You two did such an incredible job of making us feel comfortable and welcomed. We can't thank you enough for sharing your knowledge of the love for the Sound. It is absolutely magnificent."Jean
"The whole group had a tremendous time. Nancy and you were super....I can't think of any kind of charter that I have been on that was as fun as the time we had on your boat."Greg
